The Market for Bricks
The Market for Bricks provides a highly detailed and informative analysis of the total brick market.
The core market for brick is the external wall cladding market and this accounts for just over two thirds of the total usage of bricks, and this is quantified in terms of installed area of cladding and number of bricks. This is then further segmented by usage, by types of work (new, extensions and refurbishment) and by building sectors, including the split between low rise flats, high rise flats and houses in the private and public residential sectors and the individual sub sectors making up the non-domestic market (inclusive of offices, retail, leisure, education and health).
The report also analyses the penetration of bricks against alternative wall cladding systems and products in the various building sectors, sub sectors and types of work.
The remaining segment of the market, which excludes external wall claddings, is quantified in terms of numbers of bricks and this is further subdivided by the following end uses:
- Backup walls to façade systems / rainscreens
- Landscaping and boundary walls
- Internal partitioning
- Party walls
- Inner leaf to external walls
- Footings & foundations
- DIC / manholes
- Civil engineering
The report incorporates a detailed 5 year forecast to give a medium term assessment of the likely development of the brick market in terms of building sectors / end uses, types of work and types of products.
