DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9t43hb/global_stone) has announced the addition of the "Global Stone Blocks - Market Opportunity and Environment, Analyses and Forecasts to 2016" report to their offering.

The global stone blocks market valued over US$54 billion in 2011, of which the Asia-Pacific region accounted for 67.1% and was the largest regional market in the world for stone blocks. In the same year, Europe and Latin America were the second- and third-largest regional markets with shares of 27.2% and 3.6% respectively. The continuing uncertainty in Europe and sluggish growth in the US are expected to cut the market shares of Europe and North America, with demand in the Asia-Pacific region growing faster due to rising demand for residential spaces in stable and growing economies such as China and India. Timetric expects the share of the European market to fall from 27.2% in 2011 to 23.2% in 2016.
