Demand for masonry services in the US has benefited from increased residential, commercial, and municipal construction work over the past five years due to increased housing starts and an improved unemployment rate, which calls for new office and other commerical spaces. Over the next five years, these trends are likely to continue, albeit at a slowed growth rate. The Masonry industry is returning to prerecessionary levels of revenue.
Operators in the Masonry industry provide services such as stone setting, bricklaying, brick-to-glass block laying and exterior marble, granite and slate work. Industry activities also include additions, alterations, maintenance, repairs and new construction. This industry excludes businesses that pour, build and finish concrete foundations and structural elements (see IBISWorld report 23811).
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.
