Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The Non-Metallic Mineral Product Manufacturing industry generally has high barriers to entry, although they vary across the industry. Some of the products manufactured by the industry, such as asphalt concrete and rock wool, require highly specialised machinery and refinery equipment, which adds to start-up costs. The production of asphalt concrete and rock wool also requires large-scale production to be profitable, due the high volume required for road construction and to insulate buildings.

There can also be a limited supply of adequate raw materials. For instance, bitumen is a by-product from crude oil refining. It is possible to artificially manufacture bitumen, but this requires high levels of investment into research and development.
