Report Overview

Global Construction Aggregates Market: Overview

Residential, infrastructure and commercial construction are key end-use aggregate industries. Its use in the manufacture of concrete and cement, road base, and rail ballast and rail ballast is anticipated to drive its demand over the projected period.

Increased investment to boost aggregate capacity is a major trend seen in the global construction aggregate market. With the start of construction projects in different countries around the world, companies engaged in aggregate production are looking to expand their production capacity.

Increased innovation in aggregate production technologies to increase the efficiency of manufacturing processes and productivity with high product quality is projected to fuel the growth of the global construction aggregate market over the forecast period.

Construction aggregates are the most mined and grained product available in the world and are the basic building blocks of composite materials such as asphalt and concrete. These materials are produced from natural deposits such as limestone, granite, and rock traps by drilling and blasting the rock into smaller pieces. Construction aggregates are used as necessary materials under highways, airports, runways, parking lots, and railroads. This material is also used for water purification, filtration, and soil erosion control.

Global Construction Aggregates Market: Type

Based on type, the construction aggregates market is segmented into Crushed stone, Sand, Gravel and Others. Among all these types, crushed stone held a significant market share in the past due to the large-scale development of infrastructure in developing economies. Besides, sand also contributed to a substantial market share due to land reclamation and the demand for sand in building construction.

Global Construction Aggregates Market: Application

Based on Application, the global Construction Aggregates market segmented into Concrete, Road base & coverings and Others. The concrete application segment is likely to dominate the global construction aggregate market both in terms of volume and earnings. India's construction sector is anticipated to grow strongly over the forecast period due to various regulatory improvements, including the implementation of the Real Estate Regulatory Bill and the inclusion of 100% foreign direct investment in the real estate sector.

Global Construction Aggregates Market: End-User

Based on the end-user, the aggregate construction market has been segmented into infrastructure, residential, commercial, and industrial. In the historical period, infrastructure held a significant market share worldwide. This is primarily driven by the fact that a large number of aggregates are used in the development of roads, bridges, ports, and highways. Moreover, governments across nations are increasingly focusing on boosting their infrastructure spending to increase their economic growth. This has a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Global Construction Aggregates Market: Regional Insights
