US demand for decking is forecast to rise 2.7 percent annually through 2014, driven by an expected advance in housing completions from their low 2009 base. Wood decking will remain dominant but will be outpaced by wood-plastic composite, plastic and other decking types.
This study analyzes the 3 billion lineal foot US wood and competitive decking industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material type (e.g., wood, wood-plastic composites, plastic), market (e.g., residential buildings, nonresidential buildings, nonbuilding construction), application (new construction, improvement and repairs) and US region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry competitors, including Georgia-Pacific, Temple-Inland and UFP.
