Concrete slurry, commonly referred to as ready-mixed concrete, is the principal material used in the construction of infrastructure, building foundations and tilt walls, and precast panels. Manufacturers batch, mix and deliver concrete for use by construction contractors. The perishable nature of the product restricts manufacturers to supplying in a narrow geographic market (most operate within a 40-kilometre radius from the batching plant).
Industry revenue is expected to total $6.1 billion in 2012-13, up 1.7% for the year, and industry value added is about $1.22 billion or 0.1% of Australia's GDP.
Companies in this industry manufacture ready-for-pouring concrete slurry, ready-mixed concrete and mortar.
