Global Construction Stone Market 2016-2020

About Construction Stone

Broadly, construction stones are of two types:

  • Construction aggregates
  • Natural stones
Construction aggregates

Construction aggregate is a coarse particulate material used in construction activities. It includes sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete, and geo-synthetic aggregates. It is a component of composite materials such as concrete and asphalt. It acts as a reinforcement to provide strength to the overall composite material. Construction aggregate is classified into the following types - natural aggregate and contrived aggregate

Natural stones

Natural stones are shaped and sized by natural forces like river, volcanoes, and tectonic folding. They are quarried and cut for commercial purposes. Natural stone is divided into various groups, of which granite, marble, basalt, and slate are commonly used.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global construction stone market to grow at a CAGR of 8.29% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Construction Stone Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Construction Stone Market: AbleGroup, Benchmark Building Supplies, Caesarstone, Cosentino Group and LSR Group

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dakota Granite, Dal-Tile, Duracite, Granite Canada Exports, Marazzi Group, Precision Countertops, RockSolid Granit USA, Silkar Mining Joint-stock, Sunrise Quartzite, US Stoneworks, and Vangura.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the major trend in the market is focus on energy-efficient building construction. With renewed focus on energy, it is expected that construction companies will increasingly prefer building materials such as stones to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. Natural materials such as stones do not require any chemical additives and protective coatings prior to their usage leading to a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions during their production and installation.”

According to the report, increased infrastructure spending resulting in increased construction activities propels the growth of this market. Rapid urbanization in emerging countries such as China, India, Nigeria, and Indonesia has resulted in increased infrastructure spending in sectors such as water, power, and transportation.

Further, the report states that use of construction stone has an impact on the speed of the construction project. Natural stones such as granite and marble need intensive care and accuracy during their installation. They are heavy to lift, thus, are highly demanding in terms of manual force required. Due to their heavy weight, the installation process becomes quite slow as they are installed manually. Further, selection of the correct stone is a long process as it varies with the type of construction.
