For insulation and pollution reduction, concrete and clay pollution absorbing bricks are in high demand in the building sector, as they are eco-friendly and less harmful.
By Application: Based on application it segmented into structural and non-structural. The structural segment generated the highest revenue in 2022. However, the nonstructural segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Raising awareness regarding the negative impacts of air pollution on the environment and human health. Thus, this creates demand for sustainable solutions that reduce the harmful effect of air pollution and improve air quality. In addition, in nonstructural, there is growing concern regarding the air quality as a result of rising urbanization and pollution levels in certain regions. Allergies and respiratory issues are just among the health risks of poor air quality that are becoming more generally recognized.
By End user: Based on end user, it is segmented into residential sector and nonresidential sector. The residential sector segment generated the highest revenue in 2022. However, the nonresidential sector segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for pollution absorbing bricks in residential applications is rising significantly as the migration toward cities is increasing to lessen the negative impacts of air pollution and for healthier living conditions. In addition, the use of pollution absorbing bricks in the non-residential sector aims to reduce air pollution, create healthier environments, and prioritize the well-being of occupants, visitors, and workers.
Pollution absorption bricks are used for the construction of residential buildings in various ways to improve air quality and create a healthier living environment. In addition, Pollution absorption bricks used for the construction of non-residential buildings such as commercial and industrial buildings.
By Region: The pollution absorbing bricks market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. In 2022, North America held the highest revenue in pollution absorbing bricks market share. Rapid urbanization and infrastructure development projects in North America such as (U.S., Mexico and Canada) are driving the demand for construction materials. Furthermore, according to U.S. census data published in 2021, U.S. is the leading construction and manufacturing market, accounting for around $1.589 trillion, registering 4.3% of the total GDP of the country. Thus, increase in sustainable construction activities requires pollution absorbing bricks to minimize the pollution and creating sustainable growth opportunities for the market in this region. However, LAMEA is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. LAMEA majorly includes developing countries; therefore, there is a vast scope for urbanization and industrialization in this region. In addition, new residential and nonresidential construction activities are ongoing in these countries, which is expected to boost the demand for pollution absorbing bricks.
