Peru: The Association of Cement Producers (Asocem) has forecast that cement production will grow by 1 - 1.5% in 2017. This is based on predicted growth in the second half of 2017 following a decline in production of 5.5% over the last 12 months, according to the Gestión newspaper. Despite this production continued to fall in May 2017, by 6.4% year-on-year to 0.78Mt, although the rate has slowed since April. Cement demand is expected to rebound due to the reconstruction work after El Niño-related flooding and government infrastructure projects.
