Break the mold: Operators will combat competitive import pressures with greater consolidation of ownership and production

Abstract
Clay Brick & Product Manufacturing in the US

Over the five years to 2017, increased demand from the primary steel and nonferrous metal manufacturing sectors has benefited the industry. Revenue growth has also been driven by rebounding demand for clay brick and tile products from the revitalized residential construction sector; however, revenue is expected to experience a slight setback in 2017 due to a decrease in exports.

Over the five years to 2022, industry operators are expected to continue benefiting from strengthening demand for clay bricks, tiles and other structural products from the residential construction sector. Additionally, IBISWorld expects average profit margins to remain steady as operators increasingly focus on higher margin products, such as advanced refractories and premium ceramic tiles, to compete with imported products, particularly from Italy and China.

Operators in this industry manufacture clay building material including bricks, mortars and ceramic tiles. Operators also manufacture clay and nonclay refractories, which are structures that retain their shape and chemical identity when subjected to high temperatures; these structures are ideal for use in kilns and furnaces. Major buyers of industry products include building markets, steel manufacturers and companies in the mineral refining sector.

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.
