Cement & Concrete: Key facts & figures

 

 

CEMBUREAU quarterly economic reports:

2014

  • Q2 2014: The economic cycle bottomed out in Q2 2013 and rose in H2 2013 - yet ongoing austerity measures, deflationary pressures, low consumer and business confidence and slowdown in exports have resulted in rather weak H1 2014 macroeconomic figures. 
  • Q1 2014: Further to the improvement in the macroeconomic and industrial environment that was observed over the second half of 2013, real GDP growth in Q1 2014 remained in positive territory in the EU (0.3%), albeit rather weakly. 

2013

  • Q4 2013: A clear improvement in the macroeconomic and industrial environment was observed across the EU over the second half of 2013, gaining some momentum in Q4 2013.
  • Q3 2013:  The EU economy is expected to stagnate in 2013, following from the 2012 recession of 0.4% (revised, formerly 0.3%) mainly as a result of negative factors which still dominate overall economic developments.
  • Q2 2013: The latest quarterly real GDP data continued to reveal a weak macroeconomic picture in the EU
  • Q1 2013: Further to disappointing quarterly developments throughout 2012, latest actual annual GDP data revealed the weakest macroeconomic picture in the EU since the onset of the economic crisis in 2008.
