US demand for molding and trim is forecast to grow ten percent annually through 2014, driven by a rebound in new residential construction expenditures. Despite competition from plastics and wood-plastic composites, wood will remain the leading material. Other products such as exterior trim will outpace molding and stairwork.
This study analyzes the $6.3 billion US molding and trim industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material (e.g., wood, metal, plastic, engineered wood), product (e.g., moldings, stairwork) and market (e.g., residential, nonresidential, new construction, improvements and repairs).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 23 industry players, including Headwaters, Woodgrain Millwork and Sierra Pacific.
