Masonry in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Masonry in the US

The Masonry industry is highly fragmented, with many small-scale, geographically dispersed contractors operating in the market. The skilled services performed by this industry include brick and block laying, pointing, tuck pointing, cleaning and caulking masonry. Given the industry's close link to construction markets, several macroeconomic trends over the five years to 2018 have proven helpful for industry operators. Over the five years to 2023, sustained but decelerated growth in the residential and commercial building markets will positively affect industry performance.

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.
