Silicate Brick and Gas Silicate. Some Trends at the Market in 2018–2019
- Number of journal:
The data on the state and main trends in the development of the domestic market of silicate wall materials (brick, large and medium-sized silicate blocks and partition plates), as well as autoclaved gas silicate (aerated concrete) are presented. It is shown that at a significant common technology and about the same number of operating enterprises (silicate – 59, aerated concrete – 66), the production of silicate blocks is developing significantly more successfully. The decrease in the output of silicate bricks in 2018 was about 6.3% compared to the previous year, while the production of gas silicate is comparable to the level of 2017 (a drop of only -0.2%). Comparative data on the dynamics of production, average prices, profitability of the sub-sectors of the building materials industry are presented. It is revealed that at the end of 2018, the share of silicate bricks in the total structure of consumption of piece wall materials decreased to 13%, the consumption of gas silicate increased to 44%. It is concluded that since 2017 gas silicate is the most demanded wall material in Russia. The forecast is given until the end of 2019.
