Solid Surface Materials & Other Cast Polymers

As Quoted In Woodworkingnetwork.com

US demand for cast polymers will increase 5.4 percent annually through 2014, driven in part by gains in market share over laminates in countertops. Solid surface will remain the most common cast polymer, while engineered stone will grow the fastest. The countertop market will remain dominant.

This study analyzes the 166.1 million square foot US cast polymer industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material (e.g., marble, resins), product (solid surface materials, gel-coated composites, engineered stone), end use (e.g., countertops) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry players, including DuPont, Cosentino and Cambria.
