Freedonia Study: Brick & Block (2652)

Quote from article
Construction recovery, especially in residential building, is expected to drive a nearly 12 percent annual increase in brick and block demand from a weak 2009 base to 12.4 billion units--valued at $8 billion--in 2014. Specifically, Freedonia’s new “Brick & Block” study cites a 6.9 percent annual increase in concrete brick and block demand to 4.3 billion units in 2014, plus a 15 percent advance in annual clay-brick consumption during the same period to 8.2 billion units.
