Fencing

As Quoted In World Fence News

Growth will be driven by a rebound in building construction and remodeling, and by more consumer interest in high-value fencing materials such as ornamental metal and plastic and composite lumber.

US demand to rise 7% annually through 2018

Demand for fencing in the US is forecast to expand 7.0 percent per year to $9.0 billion in 2018, totaling 875 million linear feet. Advances will be spurred by a rebound in building construction spending from a low 2013 base. In addition to the lift in demand caused by the construction and remodeling of buildings, growth will also be boosted by increasing consumer interest in such high-value fencing materials as ornamental metal and plastic and composite lumber. Many consumers are opting for fences made from these materials because of their ability to improve the appearance and value of the properties that the fences are installed on.

Residential construction to remain largest market

Demand for fencing in the largest market -- residential construction -- is forecast to rise at an above average pace through 2018, fueled by a strong rebound in housing completions. The residential improvement and repair segment will further support demand advances as homeowners who put off or canceled home improvement projects during the 2007-2009 recession and its aftermath undertake such projects going forward. Some homeowners will install or repair fences to improve the exterior appearance of their properties or to enhance privacy.

Nonresidential building construction to lead gains

Nonresidential building construction applications are expected to see the most rapid advances in fencing demand of all markets through 2018, reaching $2.3 billion. Strong gains in nonresidential building construction expenditures will spur growth. The office and commercial construction segment will see the most rapid advances in fencing demand as owners of casinos, hotels, resorts, retail sites, and shopping malls install fencing to create security barriers, delineate parking areas, and enhance privacy in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Concrete, plastic fencing to grow the fastest

Among the different fencing materials, the small concrete and plastic and composite fencing segments are expected to see the most rapid gains in demand in value terms through 2018. Concrete fencing demand will be boosted by increasing consumer interest in durable yet attractive privacy fencing. Demand for plastic and composite fencing will be driven by the popularity of these materials as more durable alternatives to wood fencing. Plastic and composite fencing provides longer lifespans and requires less maintenance than wood fences.
