Concrete Masonry Marketsin North America

National Concrete Masonry Association, Herndon, VA 20171-4662, USA


Concrete masonry and hardscape products are readily available throughout North America and are the building material of choice for a variety of construction applications. Market applications include schools, hotels, single family and multifamily residential construction, shopping centers, theaters, storage, and industrial buildings. Hardscape products including segmental retaining walls and pavers are rapidly growing market segments. Hardscape materials are also available throughout North America, and similar to block, are manufactured on high production machines that mold no-slump concrete into a variety of shapes and sizes. It is the versatility of the manufacturing equipment that has sustained markets. The industry supplies not only offer a variety of shapes and sizes, but also a myriad of colors and textures ranging from polished surfaces to roughened antiqued finishes. Creative uses of the architectural features of concrete masonry and hardscape products have contributed to the popularity of innovative designs. The inherent strength, durability, fire resistance and sustainability of masonry and hardscape systems have contributed to the sustained growth of these markets in North America.
