Abstract: There is a shortage of research dedicated to the economic link between building materials cluster and efficiency of regional housing cluster development. Our motivation lies in the scientific interest to fill this gap using the example of Kazakhstan as a country with significant volumes of construction. The purpose is to identify problems related to the economic efficiency of the clustering system implementation to ensure the development of housing infrastructure in regional economies and to justify the efficiency of its use. The research framework comprises graphical models of cluster-based development in the construction industry and typologies of associated problems that adequately reflect market conditions in Kazakhstan. The results demonstrate the possibilities of employing a cluster model into the regional strategies for the construction industry development and prove the importance of implementing the clustering system in solving narrower social problems such as housing problems and economic development of urban infrastructure.

Keywords: building materials cluster; clusters; clustering potential; clustering of regional economies; housing market infrastructure; regional development.
