The construction business is getting bigger in countries like India, China, Thailand, and Indonesia because they're spending more money on building things like offices and bridges. In India, the government's Smart Cities Mission is making construction happen faster, especially for tunnels and bridges. In China, they started a massive project in 2013 called the One Belt, One Road Initiative, which connects China with many other countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Oceania. This is making the construction industry in China grow. In Thailand, the government approved a plan in 2016 to spend a lot of money on building things like railways and tunnels. The Middle East & Africa is also seeing more construction because they're moving away from relying only on oil and investing in building things. In Europe, there are tunnel projects like Follo Line in Oslo/Norway, Citybanan in Stockholm/Sweden, and Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link between Denmark and Germany.

Also, there's a growing need for metals like steel, aluminum, copper, cobalt, lithium, and magnesium because more people want cars and electronic gadgets in countries that are still developing. Cars are becoming lighter and using electric power, so there's a higher demand for metals like aluminum and lithium. Electric vehicles, like electric buses and bikes, are using lithium-ion batteries because they're lightweight and can store a lot of energy. The electronics industry is also growing, with more people wanting smartphones, TVs, and other devices. These gadgets need metals like copper, lithium, and aluminum because they're good at carrying electricity and can store a lot of energy. This increasing demand for metals is making the mining industry grow, and that's where blasting stemming plugs come in—they help with the exploding processes in mining to make it safer and more effective. So, as the construction and mining industries grow, the need for blasting stemming plugs is also increasing.
