Revenue renovation: The industry's growth is expected to slow over the current year

The Brick and Tile Manufacturing industry produces clay bricks and tiles for use in the downstream building and construction markets. Over the five years through 2018-19, industry revenue is anticipated to grow at a compound annual rate of 10.6%. Industry growth has been bolstered by financing initiatives deployed by the government, such as the Help to Buy scheme in 2013. Despite uncertainty since the EU referendum, construction activity has proved resilient. Private expenditure, particularly regarding residential housing, has gained impetus due to increased access to financing and the strengthening of the economy. The imposition of an anti-dumping tariff on Chinese ceramics has also supported more.
