Sand & Gravel Mining in the US

Despite severe contractions during the recession, the industry has managed to climb out of its trough. The recovery in the housing construction market will continue to support the industry's expansion throughout the next five years. Growth in the nonresidential market will also boost demand for the industry's products. Governmental infrastructure investment, though, is expected to slow. With profit margins growing, many operators will become vertically integrated, which will limit the number of new companies entering the industry.

This industry comprises operators involved in mining and quarrying sand (construction and industrial) and gravel, along with clays, and ceramic and refractory minerals. Industry activity may include the beneficiation of these minerals by washing, screening and otherwise preparing the mined sand, gravel and clays.

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.
