Surge in population base has led to rapid urbanization in both developed and developing economies such as the U.S., China, India, and others. This has increased government spending on building & construction sector to develop various upcoming infrastructure projects. For instance, according to a report published by National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, the infrastructure activities accounted for 13% share of the total foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows in 2021. Furthermore, rapid development of water supply, sanitation, urban transport, schools, and healthcare help boost the growth of the building & construction sector.

Dimension stones such as marbles, granite, sandstone, and others are widely used in concrete floors, warehouses, kitchen countertops, bathroom floors, hospitals, and others for surface protection and to enhance the aesthetics of buildings. Moreover, installation of dimension stones makes the surface durable and can withstand a high volume of foot traffic owing to its durability. Furthermore, it has a long shelf-life that makes the use of dimension stone an absolutely worthy investment. These factors are anticipated to fuel the demand for dimension stones in the growing building & construction sector.

These factors are anticipated to fuel the demand for dimension stones in the growing building & construction sector.

However, cost involved in the mining and processing of dimension stone is high that results in expensive final product. Furthermore, dimension stones are relatively expensive as compared to its other substitutes such as cemented bricks, stabilized soil blocks, and others. In addition to this, the production of dimension stones requires the availability of skilled workforce. For instance, according to a report published by the Government of Canada in 2021, Canada's mining industry is expected to face a shortage of up to 127,000 workers. These factors are projected to retrain the growth of the dimension stone market during the forecast period.

Operations such as drilling, blasting explosives in the mines, and guiding increasingly use the application of robotics. Several companies such as Komatsu, Caterpillar, JCB, and others are constantly engaged in producing more advanced machines and equipment that may further reduce the requirement of workforce; thus, making dimension stone mining process more effective, efficient, and simple. These factors are anticipated to offer remunerative opportunities for the dimension stone market in the coming future.

The dimension stone market is segmented into type, application,and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into granite, limestone, marble, sandstone, and others. On the basis of application, it is classified into structural use and decorative use. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
