Russia-Ukraine war impact analysis 

  • The construction materials market has significantly affected by the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Shortage of raw materials like cement, timber, and steel and high prices due to the war are impacting construction projects across the globe. The conflict has disturbed the exports of these countries as they are both key suppliers and producers of these materials.  
  • The infrastructure development and construction projects are affected due to the decline in foreign investment in the region. Geopolitical tensions and investor uncertainty are the major factors behind this scenario. Furthermore, the imposition of sanctions and trade restrictions has added to the difficulties encountered by the construction materials market. Consequently, construction firms are contending with elevated expenses, project delays, and heightened market instability. 
  • In response to these challenges, stakeholders are actively exploring sourcing alternatives, aiming to diversify both materials and suppliers. The enduring consequences will be contingent on the conflict duration and the response across the globe, but it is anticipated that the construction materials market will continue to encounter difficulties if geopolitical tensions exist. 

The aggregates segment to continue its dominance throughout the forecast timeframe 

In terms of material type, the aggregates segment held the largest share in 2022, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the overall market revenue and is anticipated to sustain its lead position throughout the forecast timeframe. Aggregates play a vital role in the construction industry, serving as indispensable components in asphalt, concrete, road bases, and various other building materials. The development in infrastructure and construction drives the demand for aggregates. However, the cement segment is expected to manifest the highest CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Cement is an important component that acts as a binder in the manufacturing of mortar, concrete, and other construction materials. It is a fine powder that, when blended with water, transforms into a paste that solidifies over time, effectively bonding aggregates and various materials to produce robust and enduring structures. Cement performs a core role in construction, owing to its ability to supply stability and strength to a broad range of construction applications.
