There are less than 40 asphalt-producing companies currently in Great Britain, operating around 275 plants between them. This is a reduction of nearly 10 % in the number of companies but a 3 % increase in the number of plants in the last five years. These companies account for a market of around 26 million t/a, an increase of 13 % over the same period, although there has been little movement in the size of the market over the last few years.
 
The leading five producers (Aggregate Industries, Breedon, Cemex, Hanson and Tarmac) occupy an estimated 80 % of the market with the majority of their plants integrated into their other operations, such as quarries, wharves and depots. Asphalt provides a key outlet for these companies, all of which are significant aggregates producers. The asphalt market as a whole represents around 12 % of total primary aggregates demand in Great Britain.
 
These are some of the findings of an updated report of the asphalt industry published by leading consultancy BDS Marketing Research. First published three years ago, it has been brought up to date to reflect the changes to the industry over the last three years. The report also provides new analysis of the bitumen market, the structure of the market shares and volumes by company and by region, a study of plant investment and age analysis, planning activity, industry end-use, a review of Highways Term maintenance Contracts and future industry prospects to 2022.
 
The estimates of outputs and market shares apportioned to each company contained within the report are taken from other BDS published reports and internal databases up to and including the calendar year 2018 together with specific research undertaken for the current study.
