Price of crushed stone in the U.S. 2010-2022
Crushed stone consumption
The United States imported 18 million metric tons of crushed stone for consumption purposes in 2022. Of the stone that was consumed, the majority was used as construction material, largely for road construction and maintenance. The demand and supply of crushed stone tends to depend highly on the wellbeing of the construction market. A growing public and private construction sector will likely lead to rising crushed stone prices. In terms of recycling, crushed stone aggregate that was used in road surfaces have been increasingly recycled across the United States. Sand and gravel can be used as substitutes for crushed stone in road building.
