Concrete Pipe & Block Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Concrete Pipe & Block Manufacturing in the US

The Concrete Pipe and Block Manufacturing industry produces concrete blocks, bricks and pipes. While concrete blocks are used across the board, concrete pipes are especially reliant on demand from infrastructure markets, such as natural gas distribution and sewage treatment. IBISWorld estimates that the industry's sustained growth has partially resulted from these key markets, which have led industry revenue to rise over the five years to 2018. The industry is relatively fragmented. The few global, vertically integrated companies comprise the major players, while the remaining operators are medium-sized local operators. Since concrete products are bulky and have a low value-to-weight ratio, they are not traded long distances, and the majority of operators maintain facilities in proximity to key construction markets. Moving forward, construction markets are expected to continue their steady growth. Over the five years to 2023, the number of companies operating in the industry is expected to fall slightly, indicating increasing consolidation, which will help to reduce per-unit production costs.

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 blocks and pavers, bricks and miscellaneous concrete products. Products made by this industry are heavily used 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.
