Gravel paver is a structure which offers heavy load bearing support and containment of gravel to create a porous surface for unlimited traffic volume and/or duration for parking. The system can be used for filtration and storage of rainwater. It also allows driving, parking, riding, or walking on a gravel surface. These pavers are cheaper than traditional hardscaping and reduces demands for landscape drainage systems. Gravel pavers are considered the alternative to traditional paving methods. These paver solutions create a strong surface supporting heavy vehicles while allowing water to pervade the surface, minimizing runoffs. They also offer a sustainable and attractive alternative to traditional asphalt or concrete. The major application of gravel pavers include service roads, bike paths, golf cart roads, residential driveways, parking lots, fire lanes, roadway shoulders, construction entrance soil stabilization, truck & cart wash-down areas, overflow parking lots, truck maintenance and equipment yards, and for erosion control on slopes and in swales.
The ability of the gravel paver to provide maximum strength and stabilization to the structure for supporting heavy vehicles such as fire trucks is expected to be major driver of gravel paver market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, it can also be used in small areas. Easy installation has led to enhanced demand for gravel pavers. Growing interest among users for green building materials for residential, non-residential, and non-building applications is further expected to spur the market growth over the forecast period. These pavers are installed in rigid panels for easy connection, faster installation, and also offer superior stability and durability to the structure. This factor is anticipated to augment the market demand for gravel pavers in the coming years.
Interconnected paver systems offer concentrated rutting and exceptional resistance to loading stresses which further influences its application in daily traffic for parking, access lanes, shoulders and walkways. This in turn is expected to boost gravel paver market demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, these pavers are ideal for green infrastructure (GI) or low impact development (LID) design for storing and managing storm water onsite and for application of raw materials. Gravel pavers are easy on the budget since it is considered as the most affordable surface material available, is easy to maintain, and its quick installation will further influence the gravel paver market growth over the forecast period. Various gravel pavers are available in pre-assembled rolls and also include a connect locking system which further reduces the installation time. Interlocking paving allows the drainage of water and beneficial bacteria, living between the gravel and stones. Furthermore, these pavers are durable, strong, flexible, and can be maintained at a minor expense. These factors are further likely to influence the gravel paver market growth over the forecast period.
