The trend of recycling is on the rise in the Global Asphalt market. Asphalt is the most recycled product in the Americas with a recycling rate of 80 percent. The rising popularity of RAP along with the need to reduce cost and wastage of materials is resulting in the increased recycling rates.

According to a survey conducted by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), more than 99 percent of recycled asphalt in the US was used for new construction projects, pavement preservation, and other paving projects. Government projects are adopting the usage of recycled materials and warm-mix asphalt to ensure that they get high-quality, sustainable roads and save taxpayers money in the process.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the growth in traffic which calls for the construction of new roads and maintenance of existing ones.

Further, the report states that one of the serious issues faced by this market is the unstable economic conditions. An economic slowdown can adversely affect construction activities and the demand for asphalt.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
