Brazil: Data from SNIC, the Brazilian national cement industry union, shows that sales rose by 1.5% year-on-year to 25.8Mt in the first half of 2019 from 25.5Mt in the same period in 2018. SNIC president Paulo Camillo Penna said that the growth was in line with SNIC’s forecasts and that more ‘robust’ growth was anticipated the second half of the year. He added that the growth in cement sales had been supported by the real estate market and that the industrial sector was also growing.
