US demand for fiber cement products is forecast to grow 6.0 percent annually through 2019 to 2.9 billion square feet, valued at $2.2 billion. Siding will remain the dominant application, while backerboard grows the fastest. Growth in the dominant residential market will continue to outpace the nonresidential segment.

This study analyzes the 2.2 billion square foot US fiber cement industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts for 2019 and 2024 by material (e.g., sand, Portland cement, cellulosic materials), application (e.g., siding, backerboard, molding and trim, roofing), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential), and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 19 industry players, including James Hardie Building Products, Elementia, and Nichiha.
