The building and construction material sector includes the raw materials used for the development of residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructural units. The materials are manufactured using naturally occurring substances, such as clay, rocks, sand and wood, can also be produced synthetically. The construction materials include structural and reinforcement steel, cement, ready-to-mix concrete, aggregates, binding wires, bricks and blocks. They are processed with additives to enhance the corrosion-, fracture- and moisture resistant properties and increase the tensile strength. They exhibit high strength-to-weight and strength-to-size ratios and are widely used in the structural framework of high-rise buildings and industrial facilities. There are several factors that are positively impacting the sector, including the development of sustainable building and construction materials, along with extensive infrastructural development. Product manufacturers are developing geopolymer concrete, foam concrete and efflorescence materials that are biodegradable and have a lower carbon footprint.
