Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

State and federal government policy to increase supply of Australian housing over the coming years supports near-term demand for brick volumes.

Bears

Brick use is expected to decline due to a greater range of alternative building materials, smaller house sizes, and a change in design preferences and building types.
