Outpouring Construction & Demolition Waste Necessitate Adoption of Recycled Construction Aggregates
Rapid urbanization and proliferation in construction and infrastructure development activities allude significant amount of waste being generated worldwide, which has been a key environmental concern among industrialists.
Continued emphasis on environmental conservation has further instigated the critical need for recycling and reusing construction materials.
According to the European Commission, construction and demolition waste account for nearly 25%-30% of the waste generated in the EU. Estimations from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) state that, in 2015, around 548 million tons of construction and demolition debris were generated in the US.
Significant efforts are being taken by governments in countries such as the US, the Netherlands, and Germany, apropos of construction and demolition waste recycling and reuse.
The introduction of new standards by the EU for recycling and reuse of construction and demolition waste in drainage, building, roads, and other construction projects, has further created growth opportunities for the recycled construction aggregates market.
Resurgent Growth in Residential Construction and Infrastructure Development to Uphold Demand
Recycled construction aggregates continue to witness robust demand in line with the growth of the residential construction and infrastructure development projects worldwide.
According to the Global Construction 2030, published by Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics, the worldwide construction output is likely to reach $15.5 trillion by 2030, with US, China, and India accounting for 57% of the global growth.
Governments in developing countries are introducing a wide range of housing schemes and residential programs, which has created a demand for cost-effective, recycled construction aggregates.
Additionally, road construction activities have significantly contributed to natural resource depletion, which has necessitated the adoption of recycled construction aggregates in the area.
Major highway projects are underway in many countries to provide better connectivity, creating opportunities for business. Old buildings and bridges are being increasingly demolished in Europe, owing to the structural deterioration beyond repairs.
Hence, recycling of demolition waste is emerging as a feasible solution in new construction after the demolition of old structures. EU under the Waste Framework Directive aims to recycle around 70% of construction and demolition waste by 2020.
Inadequate Development Efforts of Governments in Developing Economies to Confine Sales
Recycled construction aggregates are emerging as an effective alternative to conventional sources, with the use of recycled construction aggregates becoming a prominent trend in developed regions.
However, the lack of initiatives by governments in developing countries such as China, Africa, and India is expected to remain a longstanding challenge, hampering the growth of the recycled construction aggregates market.
The impact of construction and demolition waste is becoming a major issue in developing regions, in parallel to the rapid urbanization.
The government interventions including policies for waste management are still in limbo in some of the developing countries.
Compared to the pace of urbanization in developing countries, the measures for construction and demolition waste management are sluggish.
Additionally, lower affordability of recycling and reuse of construction aggregates, coupled with slower penetration of construction waste such as broken bricks and concrete, will continue to remain key challenges to the growth of the recycled construction aggregates in developing economies.
