Historical demand (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are provided for brick and tile siding by market. Siding demand is also provided on a country-by-country basis (in square meters), broken out by market. Demand in value terms is shown at the manufacturers’ level and excludes distributor and retailer markups.

The residential building and nonresidential building segments are analyzed at the global, regional, and country levels.

Primary loadbearing walls (of brick or stone) are excluded from the scope of this study. Secondary products such as soffit and trim are also excluded.

Data from the US Census Bureau were consulted in the preparation of this study, and a list of related codes is presented here for information purposes. However, these codes may not include all products covered in this report or may exclude some products of interest, and the data have thus been adjusted accordingly.
