Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Gravel and Sand Quarrying industry produces raw materials that are mainly used in construction products and landscaping supplies. The industry's performance has been subdued over the past five years, largely due to low building construction growth and weak demand from concrete manufacturing companies. In particular, difficult operating conditions in 2012-13 and 2014-15 affected the industry's growth rate, as the activity in some construction industries slowed.
