Construction Materials Market Growth is Driven by Rising Commercial and Residential Use

Published Date : 11 Apr 2023

The construction materials market size will be touch around USD 1.3 trillion by 2032 from accounted for USD 3.52 trillion in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 10.97% between 2023 and 2032.

The construction materials market's growth is driven by the rising commercial and residential use of construction materials. Construction companies are increasing their capital investments and concentrating more on research and development (R&D) activities and higher-quality products to meet customer demands.

Market Overview:

The items used in construction are called construction materials. Buildings have been made from a variety of naturally occurring materials, including clay, pebbles, sand, wood, and even twigs and leaves. The use of a variety of man-made items, some more synthetic than others, in addition to naturally occurring materials. Building materials production is a well-established industry in many nations, and the trades that use them frequently have specialized areas of expertise like carpentry, insulation, plumbing, and roofing. They offer the supplies needed to build houses and other habitations and structures.

The most crucial factor in choosing construction materials is strength. It displays the materials' resistance to pressures like compression, tension, and shear. Contractors can select from a variety of steel grades with different yield strengths, for instance. Low-grade steel can be employed, which, in this instance, can save money if the building does not need to support heavy loads. The materials' durability is essential if construction is to last a long time without requiring expensive maintenance. The cost of the construction materials will, in most cases, determine the final material selection.

The way that materials are handled and stored is another factor that needs to be considered because it affects how long the project takes to complete, how much labor and handling equipment is required, and how much it will cost. The weather is a crucial factor that must be considered when choosing materials. The individual making the decision needs to be aware of the level of expertise required to use the construction materials they select. The building costs more when specialized labor is needed.

The expansion of the construction market is anticipated to be supported by infrastructure projects, population growth, rising per capita income, lending facilities, and government support in the upcoming years. Nations with a high potential for tourism must improve their infrastructure for lodging. This is anticipated to open up important opportunities for the construction materials needed to develop hotels, motels, and resorts.

Report Highlight:

  • By Type, The global building materials industry is divided into different categories based on type, including construction aggregates, concrete bricks, cement, construction metals, and others. Construction aggregates are expected to hold a significant market share during the projection period. The segment's growth is attributable to the construction industry's explosive growth in some developing countries. There are several applications for aggregates in the building sector. Most frequently, asphalt concrete, Portland cement concrete, backfill, railroad ballast, roadway base course, and erosion control use construction aggregates. Bridges, public and private structures, roads and highways, airports, and seaports all contain construction aggregates.
  • By Application, The three application-based divisions of the global construction materials market are the residential sector, the industrial sector, and the commercial sector. Residential real estate enjoyed the largest revenue share in 2022 as a result of the sector's expansion, and it is anticipated that it will continue to rule the market throughout the study period. The residential real estate market in China is anticipated to grow at a promising rate in the coming years. By 2035, To boost consumer demand and purchasing power in the country's residential real estate market in February 2022, banks in about 90 Chinese cities cut mortgage rates.

Regional Insights:

North America is the most developed continent as a result of the presence of nations with sound economic policies, high GDPs, early adoption of cutting-edge infrastructure, and an ecosystem with a thriving building industry. One of the richest countries in the world, Canada has one of the biggest economies. Construction, which is in charge of constructing and maintaining the built infrastructure of cities, towns, and villages, is the backbone of its economy. One of the industries that consume the most mining, manufacturing, and other services is construction. Both public and private real estate is included in this. In the US, a major employer, this includes all public and private real estate and commercial infrastructure construction projects.

On the other hand, over the coming years, it is anticipated that the Asia Pacific building materials market will expand due to strong domestic demand, stable labor markets, rapid growth in disposable income, and ongoing policy support. In many countries, low inflation is also promoting a consistent flow of real income. Another significant factor is the significant financial commitments made by the public and private sectors to infrastructure. In the Asia-Pacific region, the three biggest countries are China, India, and Japan. China holds the majority of the market share for building supplies in the Asia-Pacific region. Additionally, an increase in the flow of economic stability in emerging nations throughout the region is causing a rise in company development activity, and this is expected to be a growth promoter for the product market in the upcoming time zone. Asia-Pacific is rapidly becoming a new industrial hub, so the region has a lot of potential and opportunity.

Market Dynamics:


Infrastructure initiatives fuel the market

Building materials will be used more frequently by industry and in infrastructure projects, and demands for energy efficiency will also be a key factor in business expansion. The adoption of new technologies also increases demand for building materials. A vast infrastructure network, including ports, railroads, highways, and bridges, as well as electricity grids and internet access, is necessary for the US economy, which is worth USD 20 trillion. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) secretary announced in July 2021 that the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program will award USD 905.25 million in discretionary grants to 24 projects in 18 states. As announced in April 2021, a long-awaited construction project along the Trans-Canada Highway close to the B.C.-Alberta border has started. As a result of the project, a 4.8-kilometer section of highway in Golden's Kicking Horse Canyon will be upgraded.


The macroeconomic environment's unpredictability

The market for construction materials will face significant obstacles during the anticipated period as a result of macroeconomic uncertainty. Macroeconomic conditions on a local, national, and global scale have a big impact on the building sector. The world economies' recent periods of moderate to sluggish growth and unmatched volatility have harmed the sector. The industry will be negatively impacted by the ongoing economic uncertainty, which also poses a risk because consumers may put off purchases in response to tighter credit, declines in the value of their assets or income, or unfavorable financial news. Additional factors like the state of the non-residential real estate markets, the price of labor and healthcare, and the accessibility of financing will also limit the market's growth.


Adoption of innovative materials and technologies

The adoption of new technologies and materials will be one of the most significant market trends for construction materials. The productivity of the construction industry will increase with the use of new materials and a shift in emphasis toward the use of prefabricated modular building components. If companies want to expand their customer bases and revenue streams, they must keep up with technological advancements. Strong concrete, high-performance concrete, mineral admixtures, condensed silica fume, and high-volume fly ash concrete are a few examples of technologically advanced products.
