Key Market Drivers & Challenges:
Rising Investments in the Construction Sector. 

The report identifies the rising investments in the construction sector as one of the prominent drivers likely to drive the aggregates market growth. Governments across the globe are backing construction projects for rapidly growing infrastructure development and providing shelter to the ever-growing population. In addition, countries such as India and China have contributed to the increased demand for construction aggregates due to the increase in the number of government-funded investments in infrastructure development.

Illegal mining activities.

Illegal mining activities have emerged as one of the major challenges faced by the global aggregates market, especially that of sand. The illegal sand mining activities have plagued several developing markets that spark the demand for sand. The efforts by governments to curb the illegal mining of sand have proven futile owing to the rapid depletion of sand reserves in many countries. Furthermore, the illegal mining activities associated with sand and gravel have led to increased aggregates prices, especially in the urban areas of different countries, thereby hindering the growth of the global aggregates market.
