Materials Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

The heavy industry materials industry and market includes building and construction materials used worldwide for the fabrication of structures, earth supports, embankments, and completion of excavations. Heavy industry materials for building and construction are diverse and range from readily-available non-supply chain materials such as brush and mud to commodity supply materials procured for projects like construction aggregates (particulates - sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, waste mining materials, synthetics) composite wood products, plastics (PVC), resins, synthetic textiles and fibers (fiberglass), composite cements, other plastics and polymer composites, concrete, and various metals. Heavy industry metal materials include iron, various grades of steel, specialty alloys, titanium, copper, and even gold, silver, chrome and platinum. Glass, ceramic materials and foam are also subsets of heavy industrial materials required for construction. Finished heavy industry materials for construction projects can included coated glass, architectural glass, other finished specialty glass projects, cast and molded steel (like re-bar and beams), pipe sections, blocks, bricks, tiles, flooring, drywall panels, piles, poles, pillars, and wires.

Large projects in the heavy industry and heavy construction markets are supplied building and construction materials through the procurement services of a specialty contractor or a comprehensive site manager like an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. Procurement is coordinated with the project manager and engineering staff to ensure that the project budget is kept through appropriate material costs, project guidelines for sustainability and regulations are met through compliance, materials are selected based upon engineering requirements including structural loads and stresses, and aesthetics and lifetime durability are also ensured when appropriate.
