Rising Building Construction Activity to Drive Gains in the Molding & Trim Market

Sustained growth in building construction expenditures, particularly in new housing, will drive gains. Rising improvement and repair spending will also boost sales, as building managers and homeowners opt for low cost ways to update structures. However, growing demand for more durable, higher quality products -- particularly exterior trim -- will temper replacement sales in the future because of the longer lifespans of these products.

Key Findings in the Molding & Trim Study

Interior Molding Expected to be the Fastest Growth Product Segment

Interior molding is forecast to record healthy demand gains through 2020, bolstered by strong growth in new housing completions and increased spending on home improvement projects. Stairwork demand will benefit from rising new building activity, particularly in single-family housing. Due to long replacement cycles, stairwork accounts for a relatively small share of the residential improvement and repair market, but plays a much more significant role in new residential applications. Exterior trim will also see demand gains. Homeowners looking to sell their houses will increasingly install exterior trim as a more cost-efficient means of improving the appearance of the house than more expensive renovation projects, such as siding replacement. Homebuilders will also add exterior trim to newly built houses as a way to enhance the architectural design and curb appeal of their properties.

Wood to Remain the Largest Material Type

Wood, which is specified for its good aesthetics, low cost, and versatility, will remain the leading material for molding and trim. However, competition from plastic and engineered wood is expected to intensify as manufacturers improve the aesthetics of these products and homeowners and contractors increasingly favor these materials for their durability and low maintenance requirements.

Strong Gains in Demand Expected in the Residential Market

The residential market will remain the top consumer of molding and trim due to the intensive use of interior and exterior decorative elements to improve the appearance of homes. In both the residential and nonresidential markets, improvement and repair activity will generate considerable demand, as the economy recovers and building owners and managers boost improvement spending to attract customers and tenants.

Study Coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $7.5 billion US molding & trim industry. It presents historical demand data (2005, 2010, and 2015) and forecasts (2020 and 2025) by material (wood, plastic, metal, engineered wood, precast concrete, fiber cement, wood-plastic composite, synthetic stone veneers, plaster), product (interior molding, stairwork, exterior trim), market (residential, nonresidential), and Census region (Northeast, Midwest, South, West). The study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors including Associated Materials, Axiall, Bright Wood, Builders FirstSource, Cascade Wood Products, CRH, Fortune Brands, HB&G Building Products, Headwaters, Louisiana-Pacific, Ply Gem, Quanex Building Products, Saint-Gobain, Sierra Pacific Industries, and Woodgrain Millwork.
