The Concrete Pipe and Block Manufacturing industry in Canada is expected to contract over the five years to 2017, as demand has recently slowed, due in part, to declines in government expenditure. Over the five years to 2022, recovering demand conditions will be combated by a decline in housing starts and subdued residential construction growth, limiting industry revenue.
Operators in this industry manufacture concrete pipes, bricks and blocks. Concrete pipes include storm sewer pipes, sanitary sewer pipes, reinforced pressure pipes, prestressed cylinder pressure pipes and culvert pipes. Concrete brick and block production comprises structural blocks, decorative block and pavers, bricks and miscellaneous concrete products. Products made by industry operators are used heavily in infrastructure and residential construction.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
