The industry derives approximately 40% of its revenue from the sale of concrete building boards, roof tiles, aerated blocks, bricks and pavers to the residential building market, and a further 40% of revenue is generated from sales to the non-residential building market (mainly precast concrete panels, beams, trusses, poles and posts). The industry also supplies products used in infrastructure projects (e.g. railway sleepers, traffic barriers, posts, pylons and poles).
Industry revenue is projected to total $2.3 billion in 2012-13, up 2.7% on the previous year due to the recovery in housing and commercial building activity.
