Global Concrete Block and Brick Manufacturing Market: Summary

Concrete block or concrete masonry unit is primarily used as a building material in the construction of walls. The concrete blocks are formed and hardened before they are brought to the work site.

Concrete blocks are stacked one at a time and are held together with fresh concrete mortar to form the desired length and height of the wall. Bricks are produced by mixing the ground clay with water, forming the clay into the desired shape and drying and firing. The several steps engaged in the manufacturing of bricks contain phases including mining & storage of raw materials, preparation of raw materials, bricks formation, drying, firing & cooling, de-hacking and storage of finished products.

Different shapes and sizes of bricks can be obtained by extrusion process, molding process and dry pressing. The normal method of manufacturing of autoclaved aerated concrete block is to incorporate an aerating agent in the mix, the most frequent of which is aluminum powder. This reacts with the alkali derived from the cement or lime to form complex hydrates and hydrogen gas.

The hydrogen gas forms the voids and thus makes block aerated. The brick segment holds a main share of the overall concrete block and brick manufacturing market in 2016. The clay brick segment holds more than 75.0 percent of the concrete block and brick manufacturing market owing to its size, ease of manufacturing, and comprehensive usage in developing nations.
