Asphalt Plant Market Analysis

The adoption of the cold asphalt mix technology is growing rapidly. In this technology, the heating at the high-temperature step is totally removed, and used bitumen emulsion process is used. Further, the trends of asphalt recycling have increased in the past few years. Asphalt plant utilizes residue asphalt from the sites and uses it in their plant to produce new asphalt. This not only helps to reduce the overall operational cost but also helps in reducing overall carbon footprint. The global asphalt plant market is driven by a variety of factors, such as infrastructure activities globally and growing demand for construction equipment.

Asphalt Plant Market Overview

Owing to increased urbanization, the demand for infrastructure has increased rapidly. This has led to increased demand for the asphalt plant. Mobile/Portable asphalt plants are gaining traction owing to their benefits. Some of the benefits of these plants are reduced resource wastage. On-site preparation enables the usage of the exact required amount of materials that ultimately reduces the overall operation cost. In addition, the capital investments for these plants could be higher as it has low capacity and require small and medium machinery. The Asia Pacific dominates the global asphalt plant market, whereas the European region accounted for the second largest share in the global market. The increased government funding mainly drives the European market. The European Commission has allocated approximately US$ 30 billion for the transportation infrastructure. Such factors are driving the growth of the asphalt plants in the European region.
