World Construction Aggregates

World Construction Aggregates

Growth in the world construction aggregates market will total 5.2% annually through 2019 in volume terms. Gains will be driven by solid increases in construction spending worldwide. In particular, rising levels of infrastructure spending in developing countries will benefit aggregates demand.

This report segments the world construction aggregates industry by Product, Market, & Application. Data is provided in million metric tons.

Construction Aggregates Products include:
Crushed Stone
Sand
Gravel

Crushed stone will remain the largest of these through 2019, accounting for 47% of the market. Crushed stone will also see the fastest growth, gaining share over sand and gravel will are increasingly become depleted.

Major Markets include:
Residential Building
Nonresidential Building
Non-building

Among the key applications are:
Hydraulic Concrete
Road Base & Coverings
Asphalt Concrete

Hydraulic concrete was the largest in 2014. Hydraulic concrete will also see the strongest advances, benefiting from rising construction of housing and critical infrastructure in developing regions.

World regions and countries covered in the study include:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2019. China will continue to dominate the aggregates market, but growth will slow from the pace of the previous decade.

The global construction aggregates industry is extremely fragmented and localized due to the high cost of transport. Leading suppliers include Boral, CEMEX, CRH, HeidelbergCement, Italcementi, LafargeHolcim, Martin Marietta Materials, Taiheiyo Cement, VINCI Group, and Vulcan Materials.
