The Concrete Pipe and Block Manufacturing industry's heavy reliance on construction activity has proved challenging in the five years to 2016. As the value of construction declined in the wake of the recession, demand for concrete pipes and blocks plummeted, as did their selling price. This caused industry revenue to contract steadily through 2012. In the coming years, construction markets are expected to shrug off the effects of the recession in full and spur steady growth for concrete pipe and block manufacturers.
Companies 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 mainly includes structural blocks, decorative block and pavers, bricks and miscellaneous concrete products. Industry products are heavily used in infrastructure and residential construction markets.
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.
