World Fiber Cement

As Quoted In Concrete Products

Product Update:

Fiber cement producers are continuing to create new ways for consumers to purchase their products more easily. James Hardie, for instance, has created an app that allows contractors to obtain measurements and a 3D rendering of a home just by taking pictures of the project. The company claims that the measurements are 95 percent accurate and prevents the need for measuring manually, saving contractors time and money.

Key Findings in Global Fiber Cement Market

Superior performance characteristics will drive demand

Through 2019, global demand for fiber cement products is projected to expand 4.4 percent per year to 32.6 million metric tons. Fiber cement is used primarily in roofing, siding, and molding and trim applications. Through 2019, the fastest growth in fiber cement product demand is projected in the molding and trim segment. Fiber cement molding and trim is used primarily in exterior applications. While molding and trim is typically chosen to match a home’s siding, fiber cement molding and trim’s superior performance attributes (such as the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions without rotting or warping, low maintenance requirements, and fireproof characteristics) will allow it to see higher replacement rates and gain market share from other materials, such as wood products.

Fiber cement siding will also see strong gains

Fiber cement siding is also expected to post solid demand growth through 2019, primarily because of gains in the US, which accounted for nearly one-third of global fiber cement siding demand in 2014. Fiber cement siding has become increasingly popular in the US as it can withstand harsh climates without rotting and is impervious to insects. Between 2004 and 2014, fiber cement siding increased its market share by six percentage points. Gains going forward will be less dramatic, but still respectable.

Asbestos-based products still popular in Brazil and India

In 2014, roofing comprised the largest global market for fiber cement products. Brazil and India are the largest markets for fiber cement roofing products. Lower cost products (using asbestos as the fiber) are popular in these countries. However, growing health concerns about products made from asbestos will slow growth in these markets going forward. Fiber cement roofing will lose share in Brazil and India to concrete and clay tile products, which are less expensive than asbestos-free fiber cement roofing. As a result, demand gains for fiber cement roofing are forecast to be below average through 2019.

Study Coverage

This Freedonia industry study, Global Fiber Cement, analyzes the 26.3 million metric ton global fiber cement industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by market (residential, nonresidential, new construction, improvement and repair) and application (e.g., roofing, siding, molding and trim) for 6 global regions and 19 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 24 industry players, including Etex Group, James Hardie Industries, and Nichiha.
