Composite Siding Product Innovation to Boost Adoption in Residential Applications

Cleveland OH, March 9, 2022 - Manufacturer efforts to improve the quality of composite siding products will lead to rising use in the residential market, particularly in high-end single-family homes, according to a new Freedonia Group analysis of the $154 million US market for composite siding:

  • Producers will opt for different plastic composite materials that provide enhanced performance properties such as improved moisture resistance.
  • In doing so, manufacturers will look to take market share from better established siding materials, such as engineered wood and fiber cement.

Additionally, more high-end multifamily homes are expected to opt for aluminum composite siding primarily because of its aesthetic appeal.

Product Development Also Improving Aesthetics of Composite Siding

Suppliers of composite siding are broadening their offerings to include surface textures and hues similar to brick or stone, materials that vinyl is not able to mimic. For instance, fiber-reinforced polymer panels will increasingly compete with stone and brick products – especially in high-end residential applications – because they are lightweight materials that are less expensive to ship and easier to install than heavier stone and brick products.
