US residential demand for bricks, blocks, and pavers is expected to increase 1.9% annually through 2025 to $3.7 billion, with most gains stemming from price increases. Unit growth will be restrained by:

  • brick siding facing increased competition from other materials (such as fiber cement) that can mimic the brick aesthetic at a lower cost
  • declining interest in indoor fireplaces, especially those faced in brick, in newly constructed homes
  • the increasing preference for poured concrete for structural applications

Additionally, demand was elevated in 2020, when the market was strong due to housing trends stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. While unit sales of bricks, blocks, and pavers will remain high into 2022, they will begin to slow from their peak by 2025, dragging down average growth.

Supporting gains in all markets will be the rising popularity of hardscaping and outdoor living, which benefits installation of paved patios, outdoor fireplaces, and retaining walls.

Interest in Outdoor Living to Fuel Hardscaping Gains

Hardscaping – by far the leading residential application for bricks, blocks, and pavers – is expected to account for 70% of total market gains through 2025 and will continue to gain market share from other applications due to the rising popularity of outdoor living.

Already a fast-growing trend pre-pandemic, interest in outdoor living spiked in 2020 as homeowners sought to improve the functionality of their outdoor spaces in order to provide a safe and aesthetically pleasing area to socialize and entertain.

The popularity of outdoor living will continue to spur a variety of home renovation projects, many of which will involve use of bricks, blocks, and pavers. This impact will be strongest in 2021 as homeowners take on projects – including walkways, backyard gardens, patios, fencing installation, and entertainment areas – they did not complete in 2020.

Home Design Trends Continue to Boost Gains for Bricks & Pavers

Home design trends will continue to bolster demand growth for bricks and pavers, which together are projected to account for 87% of total gains through 2025:

  • While brick continues to face competition from other siding materials, such as fiber cement and synthetic brick, its durability and aesthetic remains popular, particularly in the South where most new homes are being built.
  • The increasing popularity of outdoor living has boosted demand for site-built outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, which are frequently made of brick.
  • Pavers will continue to increase their market share, surpassing blocks as the second leading product type through 2025, as outdoor living grows in popularity and homeowners increasingly install higher value pavers that complement the aesthetic of adjoining indoor spaces.

Additionally, manufacturers continue to develop new products to cater to homeowners and reflect design trends. Concrete pavers and clay paving bricks with different colors, textures, shapes, and finishes continue to energize the market.
