Molding & Trim

As Quoted In PlasticsToday

A sharp rebound in new housing construction and a partial recovery in nonresidential building construction will drive gains, but not enough to raise demand in 2016 to the 2006 level.

US demand to rise 11% annually through 2016

US demand for molding and trim is forecast to rise nearly 11 percent per year to $9.0 billion in 2016. A sharp rebound in new housing construction and a partial recovery in nonresidential building construction will drive gains. However, this revival in new construction activity will still not be sufficient to raise molding and trim demand in 2016 to the level achieved in 2006.

Engineered wood molding and trim to grow fastest

Within each of the market segments for molding and trim, demand shares by material in 2016 will be similar to those in 2011. Therefore, overall gains for the different materials will primarily be shaped by the underlying growth in the respective market segments, rather than from increases in share within the particular market segments. For example, because wood is used extensively in new residential molding and stairwork, the rebound in new residential construction will support demand increases for wood molding and trim. Residential consumers overwhelmingly opt for wood molding because of its favorable aesthetics. Wood will see an increase in the stairwork segment, spurred by a rebound in housing completions, as most wood stairways are installed in residences.

Exterior trim is one application in which material shares are expected to change slightly over the forecast period. Wood will remain the market leader but face increasingly stiff competition from plastic and engineered wood, which better resist degradation caused by insects and exposure to the elements.

Engineered wood molding and trim is forecast to advance at the most rapid pace of all materials through 2016. The increasing use of these materials in the fast-growing new residential market will spur advances. Home builders will choose engineered wood products because they look like wood, but do not need to be painted or stained prior to installation. This will support the use of engineered wood as molding and exterior trim.

Stairwork demand to outpace molding and trim

Stairwork demand is forecast to advance more than 11 percent annually through 2016. Because most stairwork is installed in new structures, rebounding new building construction spending will drive gains. Wood will continue to dominate residential stairwork demand, while metal will account for the majority of the nonresidential market.

Demand for molding -- defined here as molding and trim products only used in interior applications -- will be driven by strong growth in housing completions. Wood will remain the leading material used in its production.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $5.4 billion US molding and trim industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., wood, plastic, metal, engineered wood), product (e.g., molding, stairwork), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential, new, improvement and repair), housing type, building type and regional market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 24 industry players, including Headwaters, Woodgrain Millwork, and Sierra Pacific Industries.
