Examples of such players profiled in the report are as follows:
Construction aggregates are primary starting materials for any type of construction. Based on availability of mines and sources, different construction styles have been developed across the globe. Globally, a variety of formats exists for residential, industrial, commercial, infrastructure and road construction. Increasing investments in new infrastructure and renovation activities is expected to drive substantial demand for construction aggregates across the globe. Construction aggregates are fundamental raw materials for construction and agricultural sectors. Natural aggregate is the most ubiquitous construction material and is used in building, transport infrastructure such as road, rail, and airport runways, power infrastructure such as dams, power plants. Construction aggregates are a broad category of coarse and granular materials consisting of crushed stone, sand, gravel, recycled aggregates, slag, clay, etc. Crushed stones are mined from bedrock deposits, sand and gravel extracted from unconsolidated sand deposits, recycled aggregates are recovered from previously used inorganic materials in construction.
Improving sanitation levels, urbanization, changing lifestyles and industrialization in most of the developing and developed economies provide firm support for moderate growth in consumption of construction aggregates across the globe. Some of the challenges faced in a construction aggregates market are transportation issues, environmental pollutions, gradual depletion of natural resources and restricted utilization of capacity owing to seasonal variations and technological limitations. Latest trends observed in the market include increasing the inclination of construction aggregates manufacturers towards a production of manufactured sand and recycled aggregates.
Crushed stone and sand are consumed in large volumes across the globe and represent high volume and moderate growth opportunities for manufacturers. In recent times, export-import of construction aggregates was noticed in key countries in close proximity. Qatar, Canada, Singapore and Kuwait were among prominent importers of construction aggregates in 2015, whilst China, Germany, Ukraine and Norway were some of the key exporters of construction aggregates in the same year. Demand for sand is anticipated to remain dominant during the forecast period, translating into an absolute incremental opportunity of approximately US$ 89 Bn over the forecast period.
Real estate investments, global cultural and sporting events, developing travel and tourism sectors have led to significant developments in infrastructure and commercial construction sector. Residential and infrastructure sectors are expected to register promising growth in consumption of construction aggregates and are expected to gain market share during the forecast period.
From regional or country level perspective, China dominated the global construction aggregates consumption in 2015, with a share of 26.7% and is expected to remain a prominent consumer of the same over the forecast period. India and China markets are expected to exhibit above-average growth over the forecast period, translating into a collective incremental opportunity of US$ 94 Bn. A market in the Northern European region is anticipated to grow at the sluggish growth rate of 3.7% by value over the forecast period, representing maturing market conditions and slow economic recovery. Apart from India and China, markets in all other countries are collectively projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% by value over the forecast period. Collective market value share of these countries is expected to witness a marginal increase of 1% by 2024 indicating stagnant market conditions. The global construction aggregates market value Y-o-Y growth is estimated to be 6.3% in 2016, which is expected to decline to 5.8% in 2017. In terms of volume, the global construction aggregates consumption is projected to reach 62.9 Bn metric tonnes by 2024 from 43.3 billion metric tonnes in 2016.
