This report evaluates the UK market for bricks, tiles and related articles made of clay or concrete. For clay bricks and tiles, the primary end-user of such products is typically the housebuilding industry, in addition to the construction of other non-housing buildings, for instance offices or commercial buildings. For concrete bricks and blocks, housebuilding again accounts for a major share of the market, although such products are commonly used throughout the entire construction industry.

MARKET SECTORS

Bricks

Bricks are typically made of clay with the use of automated processing and firing equipment, although a somewhat small and niche market for handmade bricks endures. In addition, brick manufacturers tend to offer terracotta mouldings, pavers, glazed bricks and brickwork components. Below is a list of the major brick types:

Cellular/Perforated Bricks

These types of bricks contain holes or perforations. The size of these holes and the volume percentage of the bricks accounted for by perforations is determined by certain standards.

Common Bricks

These types of bricks are manufactured with no genuine attempt to control colour or appearance and, as such, are most commonly used for internal brickwork.

Damp-Proof Course Bricks

Damp-proof course (DPC) bricks feature a low water absorption, which makes them useful for the base of walls in order to prevent the upward absorption of water. These bricks are used where an alternative material could potentially cause weakness within the structure.
