Ready-Mix Concrete Manufacturing in Canada
Operators in this industry produce wet-batch concrete and deliver it in an unhardened and plastic state to construction sites. The industry's performance depends on the level of activity in the various sectors that use concrete as construction material, including the residential, nonresidential, utilities, energy extraction and transport sectors. These sectors have performed differentially in Canada over the past five years, leading to tenuous demand for ready-mix concrete. In the coming years, positive conditions in some key downstream construction markets, such as utility and public transport construction, are expected to underpin revenue growth.
This industry manufactures wet-batch concrete, in a facility or in transit, and delivers it to construction sites in a plastic and unhardened state. The batches are ready for mixing and pouring, although this is undertaken by purchasers, not by industry operators. The production of dry-batch concrete is excluded from industry operations.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
