Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Construction Materials Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global construction materials market: CEMEX, China National Building Material Company, HeidelbergCement, and LafargeHolcim

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aditya Birla Group, Ambuja Cements, Anhui Conch Cement, Asia Cement, Athabasca Minerals, Atlas Concrete, Beijing Jinyu Group, Boral, Buzzi Unicem USA, Cementir Holding, Cementos Argos, CeraTech, China Resources Cement Holdings, Shandong Shanshui Cement Group (Sunnsy), China Tianrui Group Cement, CIMPOR, CRH, CSR, DALMIA BHARAT, Dyckerhoff, EUROCEMENT, Granite Construction, James Hardie Building Products, Lucky Cement, NCI Building Systems, OKUTAMA KOGYO, Oldcastle, Sumitomo Osaka Cement, Taiheiyo Cement, Tangshan Jidong Cement, Trinity Industries, Ube Industries, Vicat, Vulcan Materials, and Wienerberger.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Efficiency improvement. Poor productivity hinders the global economy. The complexities of the construction market such as its highly cyclical nature and relatively low margins affect the productivity of the industry. The lack of skills in many markets and increased price inflation compel the industry to focus on the fundamental issues that have existed for decades.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in number of smart cities. With growing urban population across the globe, the number of smart cities is expected to rise significantly during the forecast period due to increasing congestion of urban areas and major metropolitan cities. As of 2015, according to World Bank, total world urban population stood at 53.85% of the total world population. This increasing urban population has put a strain on the existing urban services such as public transport and road networks. This has led to the development of new cities, and more countries are focusing on creating new smart cities to accommodate increasing urban population. Smart cities will provide smarter solutions that can be deployed to reduce the straining effects of increasing urban population and introduce energy-efficient road networks, which will result in efficient public transport system.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Uncertain macroeconomic conditions. The construction industry is highly sensitive to national and regional macroeconomic conditions. The US and global economies have been undergoing a period of moderate to slow growth and unprecedented volatility, which have an adverse impact on the industry.
