Leading manufacturers of construction materials worldwide 2019

Saint-Gobain was ranked first among the world’s largest global construction material manufacturers with sales totaling 49.3 billion U.S. dollars as of April 2019. This company was originally a mirror manufacturer but has since moved to producing construction and other high-performing materials.

Building materials

Building materials manufacturers produce materials which are used for construction and include a wide variety of materials. Building materials can be categorized into naturally-occurring materials like wood and timber, and man-made substances like cement and glass. New building standards and concerns such as natural disasters and other hazards have put increased pressure on manufacturers to increase the strength, durability, and reliability of their building materials.

Construction workforce

The construction materials sector has recovered since the 2009 Recession and is growing along with the construction industry. However, a shortage in the construction workforce has been a consistent trend leading to delayed projects as well as higher prices. Due to the difficulties in finding skilled workers, contractors are increasingly looking towards manufacturers to make building materials easier to install.
