Global Siding (Cladding)

7th Edition

This study analyzes global demand for siding. Historical demand (2007, 2012, and 2017) and forecasts for 2022 and 2027 are provided for siding demand by product (in dollars and square meters) and market (in square meters). Siding demand is also provided on a country-by-country basis (in square meters), broken out by both product and market. Demand in value terms is shown at the manufacturers’ level and excludes distributor and retailer markups.


The siding products included are:

  • brick and tile
  • stucco and EIFS
  • concrete and stone
  • metal
  • fiber cement
  • vinyl
  • wood
  • other products (including polypropylene and other non-vinyl plastics, wood-plastic composites, cast acrylic, spandrel glass, straw, and mud)

The residential building and nonresidential building segments are analyzed at the global, region, and country levels. Breakouts are provided for new and improvement and repair product demand for both residential buildings (at the global, regional, and country levels) and nonresidential buildings (at the global and regional levels).

Primary loadbearing walls (of brick, concrete block, poured concrete, or stone) are excluded from the scope of this study, as is vision glass curtain wall. Secondary products such as soffit and trim are also excluded.
