Brick & Block to 2014 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for brick and block products is projected to increase 11.8 percent annually through 2014. Gains will be driven by a recovery in building construction, especially new housing. Common, glazed and other clay brick will be the fastest growing products, followed by concrete pavers.

This study analyzes the 7.1 billion unit US brick and block industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (clay brick, concrete brick and block), market (residential building, nonresidential building, nonbuilding), application (e.g., siding, structural, chimneywork, fencing) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including CEMEX, HeidelbergCement and Pavestone.
