THE Lagan Group are estimated to be the largest aggregates company in Northern Ireland with a market share of 10%, according to the latest report on the industry by BDS Marketing.

Together, these two companies are thought to have over 35% of the asphalt market, with no other company having a significant market share. The top six companies have an estimated share of 60% of the 2.5 million tonnes a year market.


In ready-mixed concrete, Readymix are the leading producers with an estimated share of 24%. In second place are Ready Use Concrete with a share of around 17%.
