World Siding (Cladding)

Gains in siding demand worldwide will be driven by a rebound in construction spending in many high-income countries, and by rising personal incomes in developing countries.

World demand to rise 5.1% annually through 2017

Through 2017, the global siding market is projected to rise 5.1 percent per year to 5.7 billion square meters, valued at $89 billion. In the residential market, increased demand will be measured against a low 2012 base in many high-income countries, which are expected to rebound somewhat from the losses of the 2007-2012 period. Demand in residential building applications will also benefit from rising personal income levels in developing countries, allowing more individuals to afford homes built with multilayer construction techniques that utilize siding. Rebounds in nonresidential construction spending in many high-income countries, plus continued strong nonresidential building activity in developing countries, will also drive demand gains.

North America to be fastest growing market

North America is forecast to post the fastest siding demand gains through 2017 at nearly seven percent annually. Demand in this region will benefit primarily from a housing market rebound in the US. While the US is expected to post the fastest gains of the national markets in siding demand through 2017, overall demand is not projected to reach the level seen in 2007. Despite similar (though of a smaller magnitude) recoveries in many countries of Western Europe, that region is projected to post the slowest siding demand gains through 2017, and demand is also not expected to reach the 2007 level.

Among the developing areas of the world, the Asia/Pacific region is expected to post the fastest siding demand gains through 2017, led by solid growth in the Chinese and Indian markets and assisted by a recovery in the more developed Australian market. Siding demand growth in Central and South America and the Africa/Mideast region will benefit from 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 somewhat constrained by a declining population and number of households.

Masonry and concrete to remain most popular types

Masonry and concrete are forecast to remain the most popular siding products through 2017, accounting for more than three-quarters of demand. The most rapid gains projected will be in fiber cement products, which will benefit from the product’s relatively low cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. Additionally, fiber cement is able to mimic the look of wood or vinyl siding, increasing its appeal to consumers. Fiber cement products are expected to gain market share, particularly in North America. Among the other masonry and concrete siding products, brick and tile are projected to remain the most popular.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study, World Siding (Cladding), analyzes the 4.4 billion square meter world siding industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., brick and tile, stucco and EIFS, concrete and stone, fiber cement, metal, vinyl, wood), market (residential buildings, nonresidential buildings, new construction, improvement and repair), world region and for 36 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including LIXIL, Kingspan Group and Nichiha.
