Prefabricated Housing

US demand for prefabricated housing will reach 185,000 units in 2011, despite projected declines in US single-family housing starts. Manufactured housing will remain the dominant segment while shipments of precut homes will grow the fastest. The Midwest region will be the fastest growing market.

This study analyzes the $8.6 billion US prefabricated housing industry. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001, 2006) and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by housing type (e.g., manufactured, modular, precut, panelized); and regional market (Northeast, Midwest, South, West).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry composition, evaluates company market share and profiles 30 leading players including Clayton Homes, Champion Homes, Fleetwood Enterprises, Palm Harbor Homes, Skyline, and Cavalier Homes.
