The global concrete blocks and bricks market size will spike during the forecast period owing to the rising frequency of natural disasters. Fortune Business Insights™ shares this information in its report titled “Concrete Blocks and Bricks Market, 2021-2028.” 

Natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, have been growing in frequency and intensity over the past few decades. According to the Munich Reinsurance Company, insured natural disaster losses of human lives and properties have doubled since 1980. The main reason for the increasing occurrence of such calamities is the worsening effects of climate change, along with rampant development activities with utter disregard for nature. As a result, the demand for climate-resilient constructions has heightened in recent years, forcing companies to develop effective solutions. Concrete blocks and bricks are a result of this rapidly growing necessity worldwide. These materials are prepared by using fly ash, lime, and clay and are economical compared to conventional bricks and blocks. Due to their structural strength, these bricks protect buildings as they are able to withstand the harshness of storms, earthquakes, and other disasters.
