The global construction industry has been relatively sluggish since 2015, reflecting a slowdown in the pace of expansion in China and weakness in key emerging markets. The decline in oil prices has also greatly undermined investment growth in major oil-producing countries in the Middle East. A slowdown in construction activity has inevitably impacted demand for key inputs, particularly aggregates.

According to Timetric, the global value of the aggregates market in nominal US dollar terms fell in 2015 and registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.95% during the review period (2011–2015). Although 2016 will be another period of sluggish growth in aggregates demand as the construction industry starts to gather pace again from 2017, the global construction aggregates market will post a CAGR of 5.15% over the forecast period (2016–2020).

Asia-Pacific was the largest regional market for aggregates, accounting for 47.9% of the global market in 2015. It was followed by North America and Europe with respective shares of 21.5% and 18.0%.

Recovery in the European and North American countries and development in the Asia-Pacific economies – particularly India and Japan – are expected to support the market’s expansion over the forecast period. The market shares of the North America, Europe and Latin America are expected to fall marginally over the forecast period, while that of the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa are set to increase.

Improvements in the global demand for aggregates over the forecast period are in line with the positive projections for construction industry growth, with the key drivers being investment in infrastructure and residential construction in emerging economies, and anticipated recovery in regional and global economic conditions.

Key Highlights
- Timetric expects the global construction aggregates market output to record a forecast-period CAGR of 5.15% in nominal terms. This increase will be a result of government investment in public infrastructure and positive developments in regional and global economic conditions.

- The global construction aggregates market consists of six categories: crushed stone, gravel and pebbles, construction sands, chippings, pre-coated aggregates and waste-based aggregates. The use of these categories varies across regions, depending on the construction technology adopted in that region.

- Although demand has been relatively weak in China during the past two years, it remains a sizeable market overall, taking a 32.9% share of the global construction aggregates market in 2015. The construction of large-scale infrastructure projects will remain a key driver of aggregates demand. The infrastructure construction market is expected to record a forecast-period CAGR of 5.13% to value CNY3.2 trillion (US$502.9 billion) in 2020. The infrastructure construction market will be supported by government investments under the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016–2020), through which the government plans to invest CNY3.8 trillion (US$538.0 billion) in new rail projects and CNY1.7 trillion (US$273.4 billion) in road infrastructure by 2020.

- With a share of 20.0% in 2015, the US was the world’s second-largest construction aggregates market during the review period, and is expected to retain its position over the forecast period. Prospects for the US construction industry are positive over the forecast period, due to the country’s need to upgrade aging infrastructure. The California High-Speed Rail Authority is constructing a high-speed rail line for US$68.4 billion. The project involves a 1,305km line and will connect 24 cities throughout the state. The project is planned to be implemented in phases over nine sections and is expected to be completed by 2029.

- Europe’s demand for construction aggregates will be driven by public and private sector investments in infrastructure, residential, commercial and energy construction projects. The government is planning to add 2,000km of track to its high-speed railway network by 2020 to enhance regional connectivity. This is expected to drive growth in the French construction aggregates market over the forecast period.
