US demand for fencing will reach 935 million linear feet in 2012, supported by a recovery in the residential fencing market. Plastic and composite fencing will be the fastest growing materials, as these products continue to penetrate the large residential fencing market at the expense of wood products. The Midwest and West regions of the US will lead gains.
This study analyzes the US fencing industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., metal, wood, plastic and composite, concrete), market (residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding, agricultural) and region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including Master Halco, MMI Products and Universal Forest Products.
