Decorative Laminates

As Quoted In Woodworkingnetwork.com

Advances will be stimulated by rebounding construction activity, greater credit availability, increased interest in home improvements, and pent-up demand for nonresidential upgrades.

US demand to rise 4.1% annually through 2018

US demand for decorative laminates is forecast to rise 4.1 percent yearly to 11.9 billion square feet in 2018, a continuation of the improvements between 2011 and 2013 after the declines from 2007 to 2010. Advances will be stimulated by renewed economic growth, along with rebounding construction activity, greater credit availability, increased interest in home improvements, and pent-up demand for nonresidential upgrades. These factors will provide opportunities for a variety of building components -- cabinets, wall panels, and others -- that use laminates as surfaces. Laminates are valued for their ability to provide good durability in surface protection at a relatively low cost. However, competition from other materials continues to grow based on price, design trends, and greater awareness of the benefits of these alternatives. Additionally, an improving economy will result in end users having the necessary resources to select higher value materials. To compete, laminate producers will continue to introduce improved textures or enhanced graphics that rival the aesthetics of alternatives (e.g., solid wood, natural stone) at a cost savings.

Cabinets to outpace furniture among major markets

Cabinets and furniture were the two largest markets in 2013, accounting for 26 percent and 23 percent of total laminates demand, respectively. Of these, the cabinet market is projected to post the more rapid gains. This improvement is primarily due to a rebound in residential construction spending. In particular, double-digit gains in the number of new homes built through 2018 will provide opportunities, since many of these new homes will include stock cabinets, which are often made using saturated paper and other low-pressure laminates on an engineered wood substrate. Sales of laminates to the furniture market will also post above average gains, benefiting from advances in new housing completions, as well as accelerating residential improvement and repair spending. The much smaller wall panels segment will also achieve above average annual gains. Sales in this market will benefit from minimal competition from alternative materials, style flexibility that provides an array of textures and appearances beyond wood-like paneling, and a rebound in wall panel production as construction activity continues to recover.

Competitive materials to dampen other markets

The store fixtures, flooring, and countertops markets will not see such rapid gains in laminate sales. Increased consumer interest in powder coated engineered wood in store fixtures, luxury vinyl tile in flooring, and engineered stone in countertops will all place pressure on laminates as early adopters of new trends focus on these competitive materials. While countertops account for a relatively small share -- three percent in 2013 -- of the total decorative laminates market, decorative laminates dominate material usage in countertop production in volume terms. The low cost of laminates in countertops will limit extreme market share losses.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the 9.8 billion square foot US decorative laminates industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by raw material (e.g., plastics, overlays, adhesives, wood substrates), manufacturing processes, product (e.g., low-pressure laminates, high-pressure laminates, edgebanding) and market (e.g., cabinets, furniture, store fixtures, flooring, wall panels, countertops).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players, including Wilsonart, Panolam Industries and Formica.
