Concrete continues to be a key input used by construction industries; therefore, positive changes in downstream markets benefit industry manufacturers. Demand from downstream construction industries will begin to improve in the latter half of the next five years, with an increase in housing starts and nonresidential construction stimulating demand for water, sewage and gas pipes.
Companies in this industry manufacture concrete pipes, bricks and blocks. Concrete pipes include storm sewer pipes, sanitary sewer pipes, reinforced pressure pipes, pre-stressed cylinder pressure pipes and culvert pipes. Concrete brick and block production mainly includes structural blocks, decorative block and pavers, bricks and miscellaneous concrete products. Industry products are heavily used in infrastructure and residential construction markets.
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.
