The construction materials sector had many fluctuations in 2011. The year had a poor start, because of the economic and fiscal deadlocks, worsened by the bad weather. Liquidity remained low, due to payment delays for already completed public works, difficult access to financing and the slow rhythm in which state institutions obtained co-financing for public projects. However, the sector began to show the first signs of recovery in the second part of 2011. As 2012 is an election year, industry players expect public and private consumption to increase, driving sales up. But pundits warn on a fall of at least 10%.The overall investment in construction materials factories amounted to EUR 50mn last year. The cement market is expected to increase this year by maximum 2% to 5%.
 Based on this expectation, several adhesives and mortars producers plan to increase their production capacities, which currently exceed by far the existing demand. Producers assume that construction works for large real estate projects, which have been blocked during the last three years, will start again. Romania reported the highest annual increase in construction works among EU members in November 2011, according to the European Statistics Institute Eurostat. The country’s construction works volume index increased by 16.7% on the year in November, recording the sector's steepest annual growth in the past couple of years. After the 9.31% y/y decline in 2010, production of clinker cement fluctuated during the first nine months of 2011 and had an overall increase of 7.54% y/y, up to 4.37mn tons. industry reports
 But this is not a solid growth, as it is based on works started a few years ago and finalized in 2011. As state-financed projects and large infrastructure works had a late start, consumption came from individual projects and small consumers. Production of ceramic bricks grew by 8.69% y/y during the first nine months of 2011, up to 123.8mn pieces. The year started with a solid production growth of 48.1% in Q1 y/y and a domestic delivery increase of almost 80%. Production growth started to lose force in Q2 and entered on a negative trend in Q3.
 The decline continued in October (-5.55% y/y) and steepened in November (-17.8% y/y), down to 11.6mn pieces. However, domestic deliveries have more than doubled in both these months y/y, up to 12.9mn pieces in December. This means companies took advantage of the higher demand to reduce their inventories.
