US demand for factory-built housing components will grow 5.3 percent annually through 2006. Advances will be driven by increased use per structure based on cost, time and quality advantages over site-built construction. Prefabricated housing will lead market gains; I-joists, walls and partitions will pace product gains.
This study analyzes the $13 billion US factory-built housing components industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., roof trusses, walls and partitions, floor trusses, I-joists, roof panels, steel framing); by market; and by US geographic region.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 42 companies including Builders FirstSource, BMC West, Carolina Holdings, Trussway, Universal Forest, Clayton Homes, Champion Enterprises, Fleetwood Enterprises, and Oakwood Homes.
