AGG1 is geared toward crushed stone producers, plant operators, sand and gravel producers, industry equipment manufacturers, construction materials, and those involved with highway construction.

The U.S. Aggregates Industry
Aggregates are the essential raw materials found in every home, building, road, bridge, and public works project today. Currently, more than 900 million tons of sand and gravel, and well over a billion tons of crushed stone, are produced in the U.S. annually. With a continued strong focus on construction and infrastructure on the horizon, the aggregates industry is expected to see ongoing growth.
In 2018, national construction spending increased to a record high of $1.329 trillion, according to an analysis of new government data by the Associated General Contractors of America. A 1.5% jump to $1.341 trillion is expected in 2019, with spending forecasted to reach $1.426 trillion in 2020.
In the U.S. today, aging infrastructure is of critical concern. Industries and business leaders nationwide are urging Congress to make our infrastructure a top priority this year and going forward. The President has a target of $1 trillion in infrastructure investment, which may find common ground with the newly Democratic-controlled House. Private investors are moving forward with plans to invest in everything from data centers to airport terminals — assets that require little or no participation from the federal government. Infrastructure funds raised a record $37 billion globally in the third quarter of 2018, according to data provider Preqin. Almost three quarters of that was dedicated toward transactions in North America.
