The Competitive Competence
The key participants in the construction aggregates market include LSR Group, Martin Marietta Materials Inc., Heidelberg Cement AG, Cemex SAB de CV ADR, and Lafarge Holcim Ltd. As far as developments are concerned, LafargeHolcim, in July 2021, did announce a cooperative agreement research project with Geocycle, its subsidiary, with the objective of mineral cycling. The research project is scheduled to be conducted in collaboration with the US Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center (ERDC) for studying the way construction demolition material could be used for producing construction aggregates and energy recovery. Also, HeidelbergCement AG, in June 2021, did announce plans of building a carbon-neutral plant in Sweden. This plant would be holding the distinction of being the very first carbon-neutral cement plant that would supposedly lessen carbon emissions by 1.8 Mn metric tons of CO2 every single year.
The demand for recycled construction aggregate suppliers will continue to increase in the upcoming period, which would, in turn, keep the cash registers ringing for the construction aggregates market.
