Demand for siding materials in the US will exceed 115 million squares in 2012. Gains will derive largely from a recovery in residential construction, particularly in single-family housing. Demand in the key vinyl siding segment will be moderated by competition from fiber cement siding. Stucco and related materials will also outpace vinyl.
This study analyzes the $10.4 billion US siding industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002, 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by material (e.g., vinyl, stucco, wood, brick, fiber cement, metal panels), market (residential, nonresidential), application (new construction, improvement and repair) and US geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including James Hardie Industries, Ply Gem and CertainTeed.
