Keynote Address: 2020 Cement Outlook

Edward Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, Portland Cement Association

The presentation provides an assessment of the U.S. macroeconomic outlook and from that borrows key drivers for construction activity. Each of the major construction and cement consumption sectors (residential, nonresidential and public) are assessed and projected out five years. The presentation will address key headwinds facing the economy and construction sectors including; labor shortfalls, rising Interest rates, new home affordability, emerging state deficits, tariffs, as well as the likely impacts of a slowing global economy.

Edward Sullivan, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Market Intelligence for PCA, directs all PCA's forward market assessments that support the industry's planning efforts and market research. Ed's analysis and views regarding the construction, cement and concrete industries is widely used in corporate planning efforts, the financial industry, and media. Ed's analysis also supports the cement industry's advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. and to this end has testified before Congress.

Ed has been cited by the Chicago Federal Reserve as the most accurate forecaster among 30 top economists. Various other forecasting surveys have placed Ed among the most accurate construction economists in the country.
