Gutters & Downspouts

US gutter and downspout demand will reach $4.2 billion in 2011. Gutters will remain the dominant segment while gutter guards grow the fastest. Aluminum will stay the largest material type, with plastic growing the fastest from a small base. The much smaller nonresidential market will outpace the residential sector.

This study analyzes the US gutter and downspout industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product (gutters, downspouts, gutter guard products, hardware and accessories); material (aluminum, steel, plastic, copper, wood); market (residential, nonresidential, new, improvement and repair) and US geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 major players including Alcoa, Euramax, Gibraltar Industries, and PlyGem.
