The annual average consumption of cement per capita increased from less than 140 kilograms to about 1.7 tons during the same period.
In terms of products consumption structure, cement is mainly used in infrastructure building of houses and roads.

The construction industry increased by 2.29% YOY in 2015 compared to 2014 by gross output value, tumbling through the growth rate of over 10%.
