The Manufacture of Clay And Concrete Bricks


This report focuses on the manufacture of clay bricks and concrete masonry units, which are important components of the building and construction industry. Despite the decline of the construction industry since 2010, major brickmakers continue to report good results due to increasing demand for residential property. While industry output has remained relatively constant since 2014 at approximately 3.6 billion standard brick equivalents, the industry continues to contract and concentrate.


Opportunities for Growth


While there has been a decline in investment in large construction projects, brickmakers and concrete masonry unit producers have benefitted from the growth in smaller construction projects, affordable housing, retail and townhouse developments, and some mega projects. Government’s 2018 Budget allocated R800bn over three years on housing, roads, public transport, water and electricity infrastructure spend. Government also wants to encourage private sector investment in the independent power producer programme.
