A stronger foundation: Recovery in the construction markets pushes the industry into growth
Sand & Gravel Mining in the US
Laying down a strong foundation
Despite severe contractions during the recession, the industry has already begun to climb out of its trough. The recovery in the housing construction market will support the industry's expansion throughout the next five years. Growth in the non-residential market will also boost demand for the industry's products. Governmental infrastructure investment, though, is expected to slow. With profit margins growing, many operators will become vertically integrated, which will limit the number of new companies entering the industry.
This industry comprises firms involved in mining and quarrying sand (construction and industrial) and gravel, along with clays, ceramic and refractory minerals. Industry
activity may include the beneficiation of these minerals by washing, screening and otherwise preparing the mined sand, gravel and clays.
