A slew of trends has come to the fore in asphalt mixing plants industry with manufacturers painstakingly working to develop a novel solution for asphalt mixing plants that would keep up with customers’ demand, along with industry requirements. Manufacturers are also developing sophisticated systems that propel efficiency, with recycling taking center stage globally.
The global market for asphalt mixing plants is estimated to cross USD 7 Bn by 2024. An asphalt mixing plant is an ideal development hardware utilized in the process of manufacturing of asphalt and is mainly used for construction ventures and road development. Use of state-of-the-art technologies and response to consumers’ requirements have made it possible to meet ever-increasing consumers’ demand and manufacture high-quality products. As such, asphalt mixing plants are in the good books of road builders.
A majority of the prominent asphalt mixing plant manufacturers are providing equipment blessed with recycling capability. That said, the extent of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) application may vary as some of the asphalt plants are expected to use RAP in the range of 15%-20% in the feed. Meanwhile, large and advanced asphalt plants can avail 100% RAP in the feed. In addition, requirement for faster commissioning and ease of transport has been acting as a catalyst in the development of compact plants, which is ideal for standard shipping containers.
