Abstract:

Cement industry effects were frequently mentioned during scoping for the M-X Deployment Area Selections and Land WithdrawalAcquisition EIS. M-X-related construction would require large quantities of cement for facilities such as protective shelters, operating bases, and runways, as well as for stimulated indirect development such as housing and commercial facilities. This study documents models to predict relative price effects with and without M-X construction in the regions. The first of the study presents an overview of the cement industry in the United States, including historical patterns of demand, production, capacity, and prices. Specific descriptions of the industry in the market areas of NevadaUtah and TexasNew Mexico are also presented. The second section forecasts production and consumption of portland cement for the previously defined NevadaUtah and TexasNew Mexico market areas from 1980 through 1989. Inherent in any forecast is a margin of error, and this margin generally increases as the forecasting period increases. Therefore, these forecasts should serve only as a general indication of future values of production, consumption, and prices.
