    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Ready-mixed concrete (also referred to as concrete slurry) is the principal material used in the construction of infrastructure, precast panels, building foundations and tilt walls. Manufacturers batch, mix and deliver concrete for use by construction contractors. The product’s perishable nature restricts manufacturers’ supply capabilities to a narrow geographic market, with most operating within a 50-kilometre radius from the batching plant. The industry includes four large vertically integrated multi-plant firms, which between them contribute over two-thirds of annual industry revenue. These include Boral, Hanson Australia, Holcim and Barro Group. The majority of remaining enterprises are small-scale firms operating within narrow geographic areas...

    Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    The Ready-Mixed Concrete Manufacturing industry has performed poorly over the past five years, largely in response to variable demand conditions from key construction markets. Strong investment growth into non-building infrastructure and resource developments over the first half of the period helped offset the subdued demand for concrete across many of the key building markets, notably in non-residential building construction, which fell to a deep cyclical trough in 2012-13. However, the subsequent sharp cyclical contraction in demand from most non-building infrastructure markets since then (excluding road construction), was partly offset by the short-lived recovery of investment into the housing and non-residential building markets during 2013-14 and 2014-15.
