Key Highlights

  • The global construction aggregates market valued over US$99 billion in 2012, of which the Asia-Pacific region constituted a 42.5% share, making it the largest regional market for construction aggregates in the world
  • In terms of growth, the global construction aggregates market recorded a CAGR of 2.40% during the review period. A key factor for this low growth was a decline in the market by 9.8% in 2009
  • The Asia-Pacific construction aggregates market valued over US$40 billion in 2012. China constituted the largest share of the regional market with 66.1% in 2012
  • Future growth will be driven by large-scale infrastructure development undertaken in emerging economies, and the easing of the economic crisis in Europe. However, the slowdown in Asia, the gradual US recovery and uncertainty in Europe will moderate growth
  • Crushed stone was the largest category in the market during the review period. The category valued over US$44 billion in 2012, constituting a 44.8% share in the global market
  • Infrastructure networks in developed countries are well established, and many use lower amounts of aggregates and concrete in construction. The majority of construction work in these countries will be limited to repairs and upgrades of existing infrastructure, and demand for construction aggregates will be less than in emerging nations
  • Increasing traffic congestion in urban areas worldwide has forced governments to invest in mass transit projects such as metro railways. GCC nations, in particular, have earmarked large sums of money in the development of a rail network to connect national and regional locations. These developments are expected to drive demand for construction aggregates
  • Stringent environmental and land use regulations in place in developed countries are expected to boost demand for recycled and secondary construction aggregates (waste-based aggregates) such as blast-furnace slag and crushed hydraulic concrete
