This study analyzes global demand for siding. Historical demand (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 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
  • concrete and stone
  • metal (metal panels, steel, and aluminum)
  • fiber cement
  • vinyl
  • wood (engineered and shingles/shakes)
  • exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS)
  • 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 and nonresidential buildings at the global, regional, and country levels.
