It is estimated that by 2020, the domestic demand for aggregates from sand and gravel production will be 16 billion tons, and the average annual added value and total profit will increase by more than 10%. The gravel practitioners need to grasp the future development trend of the gravel aggregate industry from the following 5 aspects:
Sandstone aggregate development trend one: Natural sand resources are rapidly decreasing
Natural sand and stone aggregate resources are becoming increasingly tight, and prices continue to rise. After years of mining, natural sand resources are rapidly decreasing, and in some areas, natural sand has almost dried up. In order to protect river banks, dams and ecological balance, local governments will increase river limits and strictly prohibit mining.
Sandstone Aggregate Development Trend II: Strong development momentum in the construction of machined sand production bases
With the requirements of infrastructure construction technology and the development of high technology, there are higher requirements for the quantity and quality of sand and gravel. The mechanism of sand and gravel has become the main development direction and industry body of the industrial structure transformation and upgrading of the sand and gravel industry. It is one of the key tasks for the standardized development of the industry.
With the huge changes in the price of sand and gravel in 2018, many companies in the upstream and downstream industries are very optimistic about the development prospects of the sand and gravel industry and the business opportunities of mineral resource development and utilization. They have invested in the construction of large and medium-sized sand and gravel production bases. Large cement enterprise groups have begun to set foot in the aggregate industry based on the development trend of the industry.
Due to the involvement of more companies, it has injected new development momentum into the development of the sandstone aggregate industry, and has become a new force to promote the high-quality and high-level development of sandstone trading. A number of large, medium-sized sand and gravel production bases with strength, high level, and standardized management in the industry will be successively constructed and put into operation.
Sandstone Aggregate Development Trend 3: Increasing Enterprise Management in Sandstone Industry
Local governments have strengthened corporate management of the sand and gravel industry, rectified within a time limit, and forcibly closed small, substandard sand mining plants in various places, and vigorously implemented integration, mergers and reorganizations, and expanded and strengthened.
Driven by development strategies such as national policies and industrial chain extension, the survival of the fittest in the industry is conducive to the improvement of the overall scale of the industry and the development of industrialization.
Standardized mine mining design and industrial production process implementation plan will become an important measure for the formal development of the industry.
Sandstone aggregate development trend four: industrial upgrading and extension of the industrial chain
On the basis of eliminating and closing down the capacity of traditional sand and gravel mining industries, the industry chain will be extended. Such as: commercial mix, cement products, fine powder, ultrafine powder and other products.
Under the premise of improving production technology, product standards, and raising the industry entry threshold, a modest development based on market capacity will be an embodiment of the industry's mature, stable, and virtuous circle of development.
Improving the capacity of resource allocation and the efficiency of resource utilization in the production process, forming a multi-layered and diversified international trade and cooperation, increasing international market share and increasing international competitiveness will serve as the focus and standpoint for improving the level of industry development.
Sandstone aggregate development trend five: scientific and technological progress and harmonious development
The sand and stone industry will be an important support point for leading the industry in terms of scientific and technological innovation, technological progress, increasing the scale of the industry, and accelerating the transformation of structural development methods.
Take energy conservation, emission reduction and the development of circular economy as the main points of development of the industry, realize the simultaneous development of green environmental protection and a harmonious society, and realize the transformation and upgrading of the industry.
