1.1 Definition and scope of study

Bricks are products used in construction since ancient times (for about 10,000 years). Bricks can be made from a variety of materials. Sun-dried clay ones are produced with a mixture made of clay, earth, sand and water, mixed together with a binding material (for example, rice fibers can be used). The final product is then left to dry in the sun for 25 days.  

Globally, the market for terracotta bricks can be said to be growing due to the many benefits of using them. Some of these advantages are the minimal environmental impact that makes them very eco-friendly and the resistance to weather and the passage of time. 

Also in Italy, the use of terracotta bricks is very widespread even if the market has recently undergone a decline in growth. However, future growth is expected due to the many innovations introduced as early as 2019. 

An important fact to take into account for this type of market in Italy is the decrease in the number of plants used for this type of product. This trend, however, has had a positive effect and has led to a general restructuring and optimization of the plants already existing on the market. 

However, we should not be discouraged by these declining figures because some studies show that the sector is recovering, especially thanks to new trends such as the increasing demand from consumers for anti-seismic solutions. 

In fact, it is estimated that the sale of normal anti-seismic terracotta bricks has increased by 12.9%, reaching a production of 163,000 units, equal to 3.7% of the total national production of terracotta bricks. 

These trends show how to improve this sector must study well the new needs of the market and consumers and finally create innovative products that meet their needs.

The stationary toilet market - France

Publicado en 12/01/2022 by Client anonyme - Ce client a souhaité rester anonyme

A highly quantified study. Despite the investments made by local authorities, the mistrust of public toilets is confirmed. The smart toilet market has not yet taken off.
