Siding

As Quoted In Plastics News

As is the case with many building materials, an expected rebound in construction activity will be the primary driver for growth, especially since nearly every house features exterior cladding.

US demand to rise 7.1% annually through 2018

Demand for siding in the US is forecast to increase 7.1 percent annually to 103.5 million squares in 2018, valued at $12.1 billion. As is the case with many building materials, an expected rebound in construction activity will be the primary driver for growth. For siding, the link to new housing is particularly strong, given that nearly every house in the US features exterior cladding. (In contrast, many nonresidential buildings opt for curtain walls or unclad structural walls.) Home builders are increasingly installing more durable, low-maintenance siding materials such as fiber cement, brick, and concrete and stone, although all products are expected to benefit from the forecast recovery in new housing completions. Also adding to advances will be continued growth in the important replacement market, which accounted for 57 percent of sales in 2013. Vinyl will remain the leading replacement siding material but will continue to be challenged by newer products with enhanced performance and aesthetic attributes.

Vinyl to remain largest segment, but continue losing market share

Vinyl siding accounted for the largest share of siding demand in 2013; however, vinyl siding has seen its share of the US market fall from 39 percent in 2003 to 27 percent in 2013. Vinyl siding has faced strong competition from other materials -- such as fiber cement, stucco, and wood -- that are seen as more aesthetically pleasing. Going forward, vinyl siding will remain the leading material installed in the US because of its low cost, long lifespan, and minimal maintenance needs. However, vinyl siding will continue to lose market share to materials seen as better able to improve the exterior appearance of residences.

Brick, concrete & stone to see most rapid advances

Among material types, brick, concrete, and stone siding are expected to see the most rapid advances in demand going forward. Brick siding demand will be driven by increasing residential building construction in the South, where the material is most commonly specified because of its favorable aesthetics and long tradition of use in the region. Home builders across the US are expected to increasingly install brick siding because of its desirable appearance, long lifespan, and fire resistance. Concrete and stone siding see widespread use in both residential and nonresidential structures. Concrete blocks can be used to provide functional yet durable exterior cladding, while precast concrete panels and synthetic stone veneers are specified to recreate the look of more costly siding materials -- such as brick or natural stone -- at a lower cost.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the 73.5 million square US siding industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by material (e.g., vinyl, fiber cement, wood, stucco, brick, concrete and stone, metal panels, EIFS), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry participants, including James Hardie, Ply Gem and CertainTeed.
