Efforts for Infrastructure Development in Various Countries are Creating Favorable Conditions for Industry Expansion
Infrastructure development initiatives and heavy efforts toward rapid urbanization can be seen as a substantive factor supporting the market operations over the past decade. The same factor now has taken a driver's seat in developing economies and will contribute to market developments over the projection period. Urbanization and infrastructure improvement internationally has created a favorable environment for the demand of the various types of stones across the geographies. Furthermore, the trend of customization in structure and indoor layout fuels call for equipment that could intricately form end stones to fulfill unique layout requirements.
Moreover, introducing precise and atomized equipment with CNC and digitalization brings precision, reduces manufacturing time, and boosts productivity. Moreover, environmental issues inspire the improvement of sustainable stone processing strategies and equipment, aligning with inexperienced production practices. All the above-cited factors are set to play a critical role in the growing stone processing equipment marketplace.
Strict Regulations Imposed by Environmental Authorities are Obstructing Market Operations
Many governments operating across diverse geographies are compelled to work towards sustainable ecological operations. They are taking necessary measures to curb the adverse effects of mining and quarrying operations on the environment. Further, governments also need to abide by the current standards set by international environmental agencies and regulatory bodies before granting permissions for new mining and quarrying operations. This limits the market operations, obstructing the uninterrupted supply of rocks to the crushing and processing facilities.
Moreover, increasing limitations and different policies in the post-pandemic era and volatile situations in Eastern Europe due to the Ukraine-Russia conflict have caused severe hindrance to cross-border trade. The regulations and route disruptions created a demand-supply gap between stone mining countries and countries with distinctive stone consumption in construction activities and furniture production.
Cutting Segment is Expected to Lead the Market Owing to the Increasing Application of Stones in Construction Industry
Based on product type, the market for stone processing machines is sectioned across milling machine, cutting machine, edging machine, drilling machine, finishing machine, and others.
Cutting machines will hold a majority of the share in the global market. Most stones must go through cutting operations and are subjected to drilling to fasten with other stones or joiners. The requirement of cutting operations across infrastructure development sites and at furniture production facilities aids in spurring market development.
Edging and milling machines will also govern decent stone processing machine market share and are projected to witness steady growth prospects throughout the forecast period. The availability of a diverse product portfolio for these machines by numerous market players is attracting a large customer base towards these products.
Granite Dominants Market Share Due to Exceptional Strength and Superior Thermal Stability Standards
By types of stone, the market for stone processing machines has been classified into seven sub-segments: basalt, granite, sandstone, limestone, slate, marble, and others.
Granite type will collectively generate 65% of the global market share. The superior durability of Granite stones and significant compressive strength make these rocks suitable for application across construction works. Moreover, basalt stone possess compression strength of over 200 Mpa, which enable these rocks to be used across road construction, dam, and river wall, which require construction capable of containing massive strain on the construction. Thus factors provide a significant share for Basalt segment across the regions.
