The Mexican construction market is one of the most important and significant in terms of consumption volumes of products and inputs in Latin America. Prospects for this market are expected to grow for the year 2019.

The growth expected by the Mexican Chamber of Construction Industry (CMIC) for the year 2019 is based on an increase in public investment in general infrastructure that announces that this year those investments will be tripled. This expectation of growth may also be subsidized by the announced growth of 2.1% for Mexico in 2019 by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

Specifically, in the case of ornamental stones, the Mexican market is one of the main consumers of ornamental stones such as marble and granite in Latin America. Hotels appear as important consumers of natural Stones which are used for various purposes in the construction or renovation of establishments. According to information from our partner in Mexico, Revista Equipar, the largest Mexican hotel chains continue with plans to expand and rebuild units this year.
