The construction materials market has witnessed sustained incremental growth over the years. This can be attributed to favourable economic conditions in numerous countries. The construction industry is anticipated to witness acceleration in large public infrastructural programs, which is expected to create public-private partnership opportunities.

Moreover, increase in healthcare expenditure is expected to fuel the renovation of healthcare facilities, which simultaneously is expected to drive an increase in the demand for construction materials over the forecast period (2020-2030). Spending on educational and schools institutions is also estimated to aid the expansion of the construction aggregates market size.

Increasing Infrastructure Investments in Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe

Growth of the construction aggregates market is mainly driven by the development of large-scale infrastructural projects in developing economies of Asia Pacific, and North America and Europe. Governments of major economies are concentrating on the development of transportation facilities and strengthening their energy (power generation) infrastructure.

  • For instance, in December 2015, the U.S. Congress passed a US$ 305 Bn five-year highway and transit bill to strengthen the country’s infrastructure. Several infrastructural projects, such as the construction of light rail corridors, office buildings and shopping centres, are underway in North America.
  • According to the International Renewable Energy Agency’s Renewable Capacity Statistics 2018, Asia accounted for nearly two-third of the world’s new renewable capacity in 2017, and it is the fastest-growing area, achieving a growth of 13%.

High Transportation Costs of Construction Aggregates

Although construction aggregates are low-cost materials, their transportation cost is high due to their heaviness. This is a restraint for the growth of the construction aggregates market. Transportation costs amount to around 50% of the overall administration and logistics cost incurred on construction aggregates

  • Usually, 50% of aggregates are transported via road, and in some regions, the shipping cost of an aggregate can outweigh its production cost if the material is trucked over 20 miles. Due to this, the U.S. construction aggregates industry is highly localized and fragmented.
  • Moreover, the cost of all the vehicles is very high, which means manufacturers in the construction aggregates market space either have the option of entering into contracts with logistics companies or outsourcing their work to others.

Post-2020, the market is expected to experience steady growth of around 7% in terms of value. Furthermore, China and India are expected to hold around half of the market share in the construction aggregates market, and are expected to continue their dominance in the coming assessment period.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The global construction aggregates market is set to experience steady growth of around 7% through 2030, mainly backed by increasing infrastructure activities in the healthcare, education, energy, and power sectors. Players in the construction aggregates market space can look to China and India, which will hold around half of the market share over the next decade.
