Demand For Asphalt Paving Products Expected To Rise
as reported in Better Roads

Asphalt paving products demand is projected to rise 3.3%/year through 2003 to more than 48 million tons, according to the Freedonia Group. Increases will be generated by Federal, state, and local highway construction and maintenance programs, with funding in part from the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century. Growth in emulsified asphalt products be will greatest among paving products. The increasing adoption of the Superpave program's performance-based specifications for road projects will generate demand for polymer-modified asphalts.
