British producers had manufactured nearly 2.03 billion bricks in 2018. This was the peak since the beginning of the reporting period in 2013 and the first time figures exceeded two billion units.
Following increased demand, the Brick Development Association expects production volumes to increase further in the coming years, with companies within the industry seeking to invest in greater production capacity.
