As downstream construction markets recover, demand for products from the Stone Mining industry will increase. This growth is expected to come from demand for commercial and residential construction and, to a lesser extent, from road, street and highway construction. However, slow anticipated growth in the overall US economy and an increased focus by governments to reduce deficits could hinder demand from infrastructure construction.
The Stone Mining industry comprises companies that develop mine sites; mine and quarry dimension stone (i.e. rough blocks or slabs of stone); mine and quarry crushed and broken stone, such as granite and limestone; or beneficiate stone by crushing, grinding, washing, screening, pulverizing and sizing.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
