World Siding

As Quoted In Building Products

Residential demand for siding will remain strong in developing countries as personal income levels rise and construction practices improve, increasing the number of buildings that employ siding

World demand to reach $87 billion in 2015

The global siding market is forecast to grow 4.8 percent per year through 2015 to over five billion square meters valued at $87 billion. Demand in residential and nonresidential applications will grow at similar paces. Increased residential demand will be measured against a low 2010 base in many industrialized countries, which are expected to rebound somewhat from the losses of the 2005-2010 period.

North America to be fastest growing market

North America is projected to be the fastest growing regional siding market by far. Demand will rise most rapidly in the United States as the housing sector recovers from its collapse, but US siding sales in 2015 will remain well below the level reached in 2005. Sales in Western Europe will also not return to the level achieved in 2005. Led by China and India, and assisted by gains in the Japanese, South Korean, and Australian markets, the Asia/Pacific region is expected to post strong gains. Growth in Central and South America and the Africa/Mideast region will be supported by ongoing industrial and commercial development and rising personal income levels, which will make siding products more affordable for residential construction. In Eastern Europe, growth will be constrained by a declining population and decreasing demand for new housing.

Masonry, concrete to remain dominant, fiber cement to grow fastest

Masonry and concrete products will account for nearly three-quarters of sales through 2015 in volume terms. Demand for these products is expected to grow almost five percent per year, fueled by recoveries in the housing sectors of the US and Western Europe. Brick and tile products will enjoy aboveaverage sales growth in China, India and the Africa/Mideast region. Sales of vinyl siding are expected to grow rapidly because of higher levels of US demand, but vinyl siding will remain a niche product outside North America, accounting for only a small portion of demand.

Between 2010 and 2015, demand for fiber cement siding will grow the most rapidly, taking market share from competitive products in mature markets such as the US and Western Europe. Japan will continue to be the leading national market for fiber cement siding, but gains will also be boosted by strong growth in China and India. Demand for metal siding will grow at a pace of 4.6 percent per year through 2015, based in part on increased nonresidential construction activity in industrialized countries. Wood siding will continue to lose market share to alternative options such as fiber cement. Products made of polypropylene and other composites are expected to increase in popularity from a small base.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 4.2 billion square meter world siding industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., masonry and concrete, metal, vinyl, wood), market (residential buildings, nonresidential buildings), world region and for 20 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including JS Group, Nichiha and Kingspan Group.
