A full market research study entitled 'Bricks & Blocks to 2010' has been published by The Freedonia Group Inc (Cleveland, OH, USA). It includes market, research, size, share, trends, analysis, demand and sales with regard to the US industry.
The study says that US brick and block demand will grow 4.1% annually through 2010. Concrete pavers and decorative block will grow the fastest, followed by non-structural clay brick siding and structural concrete block. Healthy non-residential building activity will benefit structural, fencing and other brick and block uses (e.g. paving, landscaping).
This study analyses the US$5.7 billion US brick and block industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by product (e.g., common clay brick, glazed clay brick,
structural concrete block, decorative concrete block, concrete pavers, concrete brick), by market, by application (e.g., siding, structural, chimneywork, fencing) and by geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major players including Wienerberger, Boral, Hanson, Rinker, Berkshire Hathaway, CEMEX, Titan and CRH.
