China: Cement production volumes grew by 6.8% year-on-year to 1.05Bnt in the first half of 2019. Profits from the sector rose by around 20% to US$11.6bn, according to the China Securities Journal and the Xinhua News Agency. This growth has been attributed to buoyant real estate and infrastructure markets. The trend is expected to continue into the second half of the year with even greater profits anticipated.
