The Clay Brick Manufacturing industry has endured difficult conditions since the mid-2000s stemming from the adverse trends in the key building markets and product substitution by non-ceramic building materials (e.g. timber, stone, concrete and steel).
The industry currently generates revenue of approximately $1.1 billion with value added of about $462 million or 0.04% of Australia's GDP. Industry revenue is estimated to climb by 2.8% during the current year, corresponding with the projected cyclical upswing of investment into the housing and commercial building markets.
Firms in this industry manufacture clay and pavers bricks (excluding refractory bricks).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
