What are the Key Opportunities for Dry Mix Concrete Manufacturers in North America?

Large public infrastructure programs are expected to increase in North America, providing greater opportunity for public-private partnerships to fund new projects. Developing areas might focus their efforts on boosting intra-regional commerce. This is likely to boost the region's building industry even more, as well as provide increased prospects for dry mix mortar suppliers.

Mexico and Canada are adopting numerous measures and reforms in order to strengthen their infrastructure sector. Some of the prominent measures in line with this strategy involve those focused toward the improvement of roadways, bridges, airports, etc. They are focusing on implementing measures to liberalize regulations in order to attract new investors in the dry sand and cement mix industry.

Apart from the above, government initiatives and rising demand for the render in dry mix mortar is expected to drive growth opportunities over the forecast period. Rendering is used in building to generate deliberately smooth and textured surfaces, and the use of dry mix mortar for rendering is expanding.

Furthermore, use of dry mix mortar products is cost-effective since they decrease potential building concerns with long-term structural integrity through a simple material approach. Thus, emerging applications of dry mix mortar are also anticipated to boost consumption rate over the coming years.

What is Hindering Market Growth of Premixed Dry Mortar to Some Extent?

The cyclic nature of the construction industry along with stringent regulatory processes are hampering the growth of new construction projects to a certain extent. This is expected to result in relatively lower demand for dry mix mortar for construction purposes, which, in turn, is likely to affect the growth of the U.S. and Mexico construction industry, thereby affecting the market for dry mix mortar in these countries.

Several contractors are proposing construction projects near forest areas resulting in animal and plant destruction, which is resulting into controversies. These are expected to hamper market expansion in the near future. The process of obtaining approvals for construction projects involves a relatively longer timeline, spanning to a few months or years, as it has to go through around 34 regulatory processes.

These factors are estimated to impact the dry mix concrete market growth to a certain extent during the forecast period.
