Europe Construction Aggregates Market
Europe Construction Aggregates Market Size Set to Reach USD 25 Billion by 2029
Published | 18 February 2023
Europe construction aggregates market is flourishing because of spurring demand for construction aggregates from nation-wide urban redevelopment projects in Türkiye and Ukraine and the growing adoption of technology advancements and rising manufacturing activities.
BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated Europe construction aggregates market size at USD 18.36 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects Europe construction aggregates market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.68% reaching a value of USD 25.02 billion by 2029. Major growth factors of Europe construction aggregates market include increasing construction and infrastructure projects in Europe combined with a scarcity of natural sand. Due to their favorable features, the initiation of development and infrastructure projects across the country is expected to enhance demand for construction aggregates. Also, as natural resources dwindle, construction aggregates have emerged as a viable option and are expected to be one of the building blocks of all types of construction projects, driving market expansion over the forecast period. Aggregates are widely employed in building, accounting for the vast bulk of materials used in the industry. Aggregates are used in the construction of infrastructure like as new and expanded highways, rail lines, airport facilities, dwellings, flood defense, and water and sanitation facilities, as well as transportation, critical properties, and affordable housing. The key demand driver for aggregates is rising infrastructure expenditure, notably in commercial and residential projects. However, high initial and overall costs is anticipated to restrain the market growth.
Europe Construction Aggregates Market – Overview
Construction aggregate, or simply aggregate, refers to all sorts of construction materials utilized in the construction industry, such as sand, gravel, and crushed stone. Construction aggregates are employed to increase the volume of concrete as well as its durability by putting additional hardness and strength. Aggregates are inert elements that are utilized in a binding substance to form concrete. Aggregates serve as fillers or volume-increasing components on the one hand, and they are responsible for the hardness, stiffness, and roughness of concrete on the other. Aggregates utilized widely in the building industry include sand, gravel, and crushed stone. Aggregators are divided as Fine Aggregates and Coarse Aggregates based on grain size. Sand, with grain sizes ranging from 4.75mm to 0.15mm, is an example of Fine Aggregates. Coarse Aggregates, on the other hand, have a grain size of about 7.5mm and are typically utilized as gravel. Aggregates that have been treated are a subset of aggregates. They are specifically intended for use in the manufacturing of high-quality concrete. They are classified into three types based on density: normal aggregates, high-density aggregates, and low-density aggregates.
Opportunity: Country-wide urban redevelopment & recovery projects in Türkiye and Ukraine
Major companies in Europe construction aggregates market are expected to gain from significant opportunities provided by the massive infrastructure projects in earthquake-hit Türkiye and war-ravaged Ukraine.
In Türkiye, analysts estimated that the urban redevelopment across the country post the earthquake would provide huge opportunities for the construction and related industries in total investment of more than USD 250 billion. On February 06, 2023, a 7.8-magnitude of earthquake hit Türkiye and Syria, killing tens of thousands of people and severely damaging infrastructure in cities and villages across its fault line. The President of Türkiye announced that the government would engage in a comprehensive construction program to rebuild cities with safety and sustainability.
In Ukraine, Russia’s war in the country has been continuing for more than a year now. Consequently, infrastructure across Ukraine has been severely damaged. In September 2022, Ukraine government, the European Commission, and the World Bank, along with their partners estimated the cost of Ukraine’s reconstruction and recovery would be about USD 350 billion. As the war continues, the cost is anticipated to escalate.
Massive redevelopment and recovery projects in Türkiye and Ukraine are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for construction and supplementary industries. It, in turn, is projected to aid the growth of Europe construction aggregates market during the forecast period between 2023 and 2029 and beyond.
Impact of COVID-19 on Europe Construction Aggregates Market
COVID-19 had a detrimental impact on the Europe construction aggregates market. Europe has been placed under strict lockdown. Although it has now been lifted, construction activity in the region has yet to fully resume. Furthermore, delays in petroleum supplies across roads and waterways caused by the closure of major international crossings have significantly increased the quantity of inventories. Consequently, higher expenditures paid for building aggregate storage have restricted market expansion. Delays in cargo shipments from refineries to targeted destinations, as well as travel restrictions, have all had an impact on the building aggregate supply chain.
