Turkey among the top in cement producing countries

Turkey has maintained its place as Europe´s top cement producer and No. 7 in the world. The Turkish Cement Manufacturers Association reported that in 2014 domestic cement sales were 62.5 mn t while export sales were just under 8 mn t. Earlier this year there were sharp falls in domestic cement sales and exports. Clinker exports were also well down on the same period in 2014.
