AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
Data on the state and main trends in the development of the domestic market of silicate wall materials are presented. It is shown that the decline in production in 2016 was 31%, in 2017 – another 15%. According to “GS-Expert”, in 2017 Russia produced 1.9 billion pc of equivalent brick of silicate wall materials by 62 operating plants. The reduction in operating enterprises continues, their average production capacity, as well as profitability, decreases. It is noted that the data of official statistics are overstated by more than 30%. At the same time, the product segment was allocated, which in 2018 moved to the growth of production volumes – large and medium – format silicate wall blocks (WB) and partition slabs (PS). According to the forecast of “GS-Expert”, in 2018, the production of silicate bricks will be reduced by 9–12%, and in 2019 by another 5–7%. The resumption of growth can begin only after the restoration of investment activity in construction.
