Government of various countries are investing heavily in infrastructure development, which necessitates a substantial amount of construction aggregates. Application of construction aggregates in infrastructure development remains robust while their use for commercial construction purposes also continues to grow at a steady rate. Based on application, infrastructure development activities will account for nearly US$ 276.4 Bn worth construction aggregates by the end of 2025.
Among the regions/countries, China and India are estimated to remain as the two major markets for construction aggregates throughout the forecast period, due to the overwhelming growth in the construction sector in these two countries. By 2025-end, China is estimated to hold close to 26.8% value share of the market. Meanwhile, the robust urbanization coupled with the strong emphasis by the government to improve the service life of various public utilities in India are expected to be the key factors driving demand for construction aggregates in the country. The construction aggregates markets in North & Central America are also estimated to witness impressive growth rates during the forecast period.
