Analysts’ Viewpoint

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, companies in the concrete block and brick manufacturing market are participating in webinars that are educating architects about different possibilities in colors, textures, and finishes in bricks that add to the aesthetic appeal of building structures. Sustainable bricks made from fly ash derived from thermal power plants, waste plastic, and cement caters to the cost-efficient production of materials. In case of disasters, concrete block homes are usually cheaper to rebuild. However, concrete blocks are susceptible to water seepage over time and offer less aesthetic appeal. Hence, manufacturers should increase awareness about its advantages such as its compliance with high construction standards and sound insulation, which reduces energy bills.

Concrete Block and Brick Manufacturing Market: Overview

  • Concrete block and brick manufacturing plays a key role in the construction of commercial, residential, and industrial infrastructure. Blocks and bricks are primarily used as building materials in the construction of walls. 
  • Based on product type, the global concrete blocks and brick manufacturing market has been segmented into concrete block, brick, and AAC block. The concrete block segment has been sub-segmented into hollow, cellular, fully solid, and others; while the brick segment has been sub-divided into clay, sand lime, fly ash clay, and others.

Key Growth Drivers of Concrete Block and Brick Manufacturing Market

  • The concrete block and brick manufacturing industry in North America has been striving to develop low pollution & high quality building materials such as AAC blocks for various end uses such as building & construction, automotive, and agriculture. The concrete block and brick manufacturing market in North America is likely to expand at a slower pace than that in Asia Pacific during the forecast period, due to low cost of bricks in Asia Pacific. This is anticipated to hamper the players operating in the concrete block and brick manufacturing market in North America. The U.S. is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the concrete block and brick manufacturing market during the forecast period, due to increase in construction activities in the country. The concrete block and brick manufacturing market in Canada is estimated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period, owing to presence of small- and medium-sized manufacturers across the country.
  • Rise in demand for traditional building materials can be primarily ascribed to growth of the global construction sector. Increase in construction and infrastructure-related activities worldwide has boosted the demand for residential, commercial, and industrial construction. This has led to consistent growth in the building materials industry. Macroeconomic factors such as growth in GDP, gradual recovery in construction expenditure in residential and non-residential sectors, and expansion in the real estate sector are projected to drive the global concrete block and brick manufacturing market in the near future.

Key Challenges for Concrete Block and Brick Manufacturing Market

  • Tensile strength of concrete bricks is comparatively low. Therefore, concrete bricks cannot give ideal performance in seismic prone areas. Burnt clay bricks are commonly used in the construction of masonry building.
  • Clay bricks are naturally porous and absorb water. Excessive porosity is harmful to good masonry behavior, as bricks absorb water from the adjoining mortar. This results in poor bonding between brick and mortar, thus causing difficulty in the positioning of masonry units. These factors have been adversely affecting the global concrete block and brick manufacturing market since the past few years.
