Brick is a small unit of building construction material, often made from fired clay and secured with mortar. Mortar comprises of sand, cement, and water and acts as a bonding agent. A brick is composed of clay and is used to make pavements, walls, and other elements, such as floors and roofs in construction. Modern bricks are composed of concrete, lime, clay-bearing soil, and sand. The brick making machines are mostly used in the construction industry. These machines help the construction industry to reduce the total construction time and cost by catering to the demand for bricks. 


Common Bricks Types used in South Africa include:

• Sand Lime Bricks (Calcium Silicate Bricks);

• Engineering Bricks;

• Concrete Bricks; and

• Fly ash Clay Bricks.


Increase in demand for economical, improved, efficient, and eco-friendly equipment for construction is a key driver of the global brick making machines market. An increase in the need for housing due to the rise in global population is expected to drive the market growth. According to Housing for all by 2030, an initiative of The World Bank, 3 billion people will need 300 million new houses and basic infrastructure by 2030. These days bricks are manufactured at the construction site to reduce logistics cost; therefore, there is an increase in the demand for brick making machines at construction site. This factor is anticipated to drive the growth of the brick making market during the forecast period. Modern buildings are constructed with prefabricated or precast concrete panels; this decreases the demand for bricks and bricks manufacturing machines, which in turn limits the growth of the brick making machines market during the forecast period.

The real estate sector is growing rapidly worldwide due to rise in population; this is expected to create opportunities for the global brick making machines market during the forecast period. Statistics in the United Nations depict that there is an increase in the population in the global urban area by 200,000 people per day. This growth in urban population will need affordable housing as well as social, transportation, and utility infrastructure. This rise in demand for houses and infrastructure will need large amount of bricks, which in turn fosters the growth of the brick making machine market during the forecast period.  

The global brick making machine market is segmented on the basis of type, motor capacity in hydraulic pressure, end user, and region. By type, the market is divided into concrete brick machine, hollow brick making machine, fly ash brick machine, interlocking brick machine, clay brick machine, and cement brick machine. By motor capacity, the market is classified into less than 10 hp, 10–20 hp, 20–30 hp, and more than 30 hp. By end user, the market is categorised into residential, construction, commercial construction, and others. Based on region, it is analysed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. China and India in Asia-Pacific are anticipated to dominate the market due to growth in real estate sector.
