This represents a 4.3% jump from a projected 689.8 million sq. ft. in 2015. The 2016 estimated total was the highest sales since 2006, and also 35.5% higher than 2010 when the industry reported the low point for sales at 472 million sq. ft. The study, 2017 ICPI Industry Sales Profile, surveyed 25 manufacturers representing 24% of the producing companies in the U.S. and Canada. These companies own approximately 54% of the paver producing machines in the two countries. In the U.S., concrete paver sales (as defined by ASTM) expanded 4.5%, while sales of units designed for permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) applications increased 20.2%. This represents a combined increase of 5.7% from an estimated 595.5 million sf. in 2015 to approximately 629.4 million sf. for 2016. Sales of all pavers in the U.S. climbed 5.5% during 2016, while Canadian sales declined slightly by 1.3%. In all, 77.7% of sales were to the residential market.
