World Residential Countertops

Global demand for residential countertops will rise 3.3 percent annually through 2013. The Asia/Pacific region will remain the largest market, led by gains in China and India. Laminate, solid surface and natural stone will remain key material types, while engineered stone will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 289 million square meter world countertop industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, with forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by material (e.g., laminates, solid surface, natural stone, engineered stone), type (e.g., kitchen, bath), market (new construction, remodeling), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, North America) and for 18 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including Fletcher Building, Illinois Tool Works and DuPont.
