Wood & Competitive Decking

As Quoted In Building Products Digest

Although wood decking demand in the US will be flat through 2013, alternative decking will grow nearly ten percent annually. Nevertheless, wood decking will continue to account for the majority of decking demand in volume and value. The residential market will remain dominant as consumers add amenities to their existing decks.

This study analyzes the $4.1 billion US decking industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by material type (e.g., wood, wood-plastic composite, plastic), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding construction) and US geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry players, including Georgia-Pacific, Universal Forest Products and Trex.
