Rapid urbanization and increased construction projects across residential and commercial sectors are the factors working in favour of the glazed bricks market. Another factor promoting the growth of the Glazed Bricks market is increasing government expenditure on infrastructural development such as municipal buildings, railways station, schools, offices, etc. These buildings need building material that can be easily cleaned, requires less maintenance and offer extended durability – glazed bricks are an apt choice to this purpose.
However, the prevalence of stringent government regulations in developed countries related to high toxicity of the product is expected to hinder the growth of glazed bricks market over the forecast period. The manufacturing cost of glazed bricks is relatively inexpensive as compared to its transportation cost. Due to the high transportation cost the sales of glazed bricks have been constricted to high end urban regions. The aforementioned factors can act as a restraining factor for the dominant players and meanwhile, act as an opportunity for local market players. Also, only a small fraction of the glazed bricks industry is in international trade.
Glazed bricks have been widely used to enhance the interiors as well as the exteriors of houses.

Asia pacific holds a major share in the global Glazed bricks market and is followed by East Europe, West Europe, South America and Central America. Increased construction in the Asia Pacific region in countries such as India and China has turned the region into a major consumer market for glazed bricks and the glazed bricks market is expected to grow further during the forecast period in this region. Increased construction and low raw material and labour costs in this region have impelled key players to shift their manufacturing units to this region. North America will show less demand owing to stringent environmental laws. However, many dominant players in the glazed bricks market are investing heavily on R & D to develop eco-friendly glazed bricks to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
