Dec. 10, 2007 - PRLog -- Global demand for construction aggregates is expected to rise nearly four percent annually through 2011 to over 26 billion metric tons. Some of the strongest increases will come from India, which is already one of the largest national markets. Other countries, such as China, Iran, Mexico, Poland, and Russia, will also achieve strong gains, spurred by industrialization activity and an acceleration in infrastructure construction. Advances will not be as strong in the industrialized nations of the world, including the US, Japan, and Western Europe. Repairs and maintenance construction on the well-developed physical infrastructures of these countries will  drive demand through 2011. An increase in nonbuilding construction projects in the United States will lead to higher construction spending and aggregates demand despite a slowdown in residential building activity.
Nonbuilding construction market to lead gains
The nonbuilding construction market for construction aggregates is forecast to be the quickest growing end-use sector.  Accounting for over 70 percent of worldwide aggregates demand in 2006, gains in nonbuilding construction demand will be fueled by an increase in construction activity in industrializing  nations. Demand for construction aggregates used in the production of asphaltic concrete will grow the fastest of all major application categories, resulting from growth in road building and
maintenance projects and increases in nonbuilding construction expenditures around the world. Aggregate sales for use in hydraulic concrete applications, which account for approximately 40 percent of all product demand, are expected to rise at a moderate pace.
Recycled, specialty types to grow quickest
Growing environmental and land use concerns will spur the strongest gains in aggregates composed of recycled materials such as crushed hydraulic and asphaltic concrete and waste materials such as fly ash and blast-furnace slag. Market gains will also be bolstered by growing sales of specialty aggregate products like expanded clay and shale, which are used in applications such as bridge decks, where light weight is crucial. Trade in construction aggregates is expected to increase moderately through 2011, spurred to a great extent by  continuing improvements in mining, processing and material handling technologies, more stringent environmental and land use regulations, further expansion of offshore sources of supply and the development of spot shortages in high growth construction markets.
