Demand for siding in the US is forecast to grow 6.5 percent annually through 2014, driven by a rebound in housing completions from depressed levels in 2009. Fiber cement, stucco and brick siding will see the most rapid advances. Vinyl siding will remain the largest segment and will continue to supplant wood.
This study analyzes the 74 million square US siding industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material (e.g., vinyl siding, wood siding, fiber cement, stucco, metal panels, brick siding, EIFS, concrete and stone), market (residential, nonresidential) and US region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including James Hardie, Ply Gem and CertainTeed.
