Over the five years to 2016, positive developments in downstream construction led to an anticipated boost in revenue for the Ready-Mix Concrete Manufacturing industry. The industry's outlook is promising because its construction markets are all expected to continue experiencing growth over the next five years, though some more than others. Residential construction will be propelled by improving incomes, while nonresidential construction, stimulated by an improving economy and rebounding business confidence, is forecast to grow at an accelerated pace through 2021. However, transport infrastructure and utilities construction will likely be more sluggish, held back by budget deficits and potential cuts and policy changes at the state and federal levels.
This industry manufactures concrete and delivers it in a plastic and unhardened state to purchasers, such as contractors, who then mix and pour the concrete at construction sites. This industry does not engage in the mixing and pouring operations. It also does not manufacture dry concrete.
