India Blocks and Bricks Market

India is the second largest brick manufacturer in the world after China. Indian brick industry is almost entirely unorganized and characterized by the presence of large number of small scale manufacturers which compete with one another at the regional level.

Bricks industry in India has recorded considerable growth over past few years, driven by the growth in infrastructure and construction activities. Moreover, India’s rising population, increase in per capita income, improved economic growth, industrialization and rapid urbanization has augmented the growth prospects of blocks and bricks industry. India’s blocks and bricks market grew at a CAGR of ~% during FY’2011-FY’2016 from INR ~ billion in FY’2011to INR ~ billion in FY’2016.


By brick type (Clay, Fly-Ash, Concrete block, AAC block and Others): In India’s brick industry majorly four types of bricks are available: clay brick, fly ash brick, concrete block and AAC block. As of FY’2016, clay brick was the most widely sold product category with approximately ~% market share followed by fly-ash bricks (~%), concrete block (~%) and AAC blocks (~%). All other types of bricks comprised for the remaining ~% market share as of FY’2016. Clay brick had the highest market share as it is being traditionally used since ages and is readily available in the market. Moreover, people are not aware about the new category of bricks such as AAC blocks and usually have been observed to opt for pocket friendly clay bricks in most construction works.

By concrete block type (Solid, Hollow, CLC and RMC): Solid block is the market leader followed by hollow block with market share of ~% and ~% respectively, as of FY’2016. Solid blocks are commonly used to build load bearing walls due to its density and compressive strength of 5 Newton/meter square which is much higher than other types of concrete blocks. Whereas, hollow blocks were the second most preferred concrete blocks in India with a market share of ~%. They have better insulating properties, more durable, easier to install electrical and plumbing fixtures. Hollows blocks are used as outer or inner walls in high rise buildings to reduce the overall dead load of the building.

By manufacturing process of clay brick (BTK, Clamps, Zig-Zag, HDK and Others): Clay bricks can be further segmented according to the production technique used to manufacture them such as Bulls trench kilns (BTK), Clamps, Zig-Zag, HDK, and others. Production capacity of bricks was way higher using BTK technique as compared to other brick burning techniques. Hence, BTK technique accounted for producing almost ~% of the clay bricks manufactured in the country annually, followed by clamps which had ~% market share. Zig-Zag and HDK techniques accounted for ~% market share and the remaining ~% was accounted by all other methods such as VSBK and Hoffmann Kilns.Fly Ash Bricks Sales india,Brick Manufacturing Business in India,India’s Brick Industry,fly ash brick industry in India,Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Block Market India,AAC Block Manufacturing Plants India,AAC Block Manufacturers India

By application (Residential and Non-Residential): Non residential structures accounted for ~% market share as compared to ~% by residential, when it comes to end usage of blocks and bricks in India. Clay bricks were extensively used for construction of residential buildings whereas fly-ash bricks, concrete blocks and AAC blocks comparatively found higher acceptance for construction of non-residential structures.

Scenario of AAC Block Market

In India, Siporex of BG Shrike Group was the first to venture in to AAC block market and established its manufacturing plant in Pune way back in 1970. However, by 2010 there were only 5 companies which manufactured AAC blocks in India. It is only in last few years that AAC block market has garnered much traction, owing to its several beneficial attributes, and by FY’2016 there were several AAC block manufacturing plants with a total installed capacity of ~ million cum. per annum. Despite its rapid growth in recent years, AAC block market is still in its nascent stages and currently occupied just ~% market share of the total block and brick industry of India. The AAC block market grew at an impressive CAGR of ~% during the period FY’2011-FY’2016.

AAC block market in India was highly competitive and dominated by a handful of large players, which have established considerable manufacturing capability to meet the current demands. As of FY’2016, top 4 players occupied ~% market share of the overall AAC block market, with HIL Limited being the largest player which comprised ~% market share. Siporex was the second largest player with a market share of ~%, followed by Magicrete (~%) and Biltech (~%). Amongst the recent entrants to the market, JK Lakshmi Cement and UltraTech Cement occupied a market share of ~% and ~%, respectively, while the remaining market share of ~% was occupied by other small to midsized players.
