Siding

According to Siding, demand in the US will be driven by a rebound in building construction activity, in particular double-digit gains in housing completions, as well as by an acceleration of growth in the residential replacement segment.

Brick, stucco to be fastest growing siding materials

Brick and stucco siding are forecast to record the fastest advances in demand among siding types through 2019. Brick siding demand will be driven by accelerating growth in building expenditures, particularly in the South, where the material is commonly used because of its favorable aesthetics and long tradition of use in the region. Stucco is also becoming increasingly preferred as a siding material because of its low cost and minimal maintenance requirements. Demand gains for stucco will be especially strong in the West due to the popularity of Spanish style architecture.

Freedonia’s research found that vinyl siding accounted for the largest share of siding demand in 2014 with nearly one-quarter of the total. However, vinyl siding’s market share has consistently fallen since 2004. Vinyl siding has faced continued competition from other materials perceived to be more aesthetically pleasing. Nevertheless, vinyl siding is expected to remain the leading material installed in the US through the forecast period because of its low cost, long lifespan, and minimal maintenance needs. Additionally, the large stock of existing homes with vinyl siding installed will support improvement and repair demand, as homeowners often prefer to use the same material when replacing older or worn siding.
