Fiber Cement

US demand for fiber cement products is projected to increase 8.1 percent per year through 2019. A continuing recovery in new housing construction will boost demand for fiber cement products such as siding, backer board, molding and trim. Ongoing development of value-added products, such as pre-painted fiber cement siding, will improve aesthetic qualities or offer time savings to installers.

The report covers fiber cement product demand by Application, Market, and Region, along with a discussion of raw materials used in production. Data is given in dollar value and volume (area of product measured at a standard 5/16-inch thickness).

Fiber cement applications covered in the study include:

Siding

Backer board

Molding & Trim

Roofing

In terms of volume, siding will remain the leading application through 2019. Fiber cement backer board will enjoy slightly faster demand growth through 2019, boosted by use as a flooring underlay for tile flooring.

Markets for fiber cement products include:

New residential construction

Residential improvement and repair

New nonresidential construction

Nonresidential improvement and repair

Residential improvement and repair was the leading source of demand for fiber cement products in 2014. Rebounding building construction activity will help demand in the new construction markets to outpace their improvement and repair counterparts through 2019.

Demand is broken out for US Census regions and sub regions. The West will post the fastest growth in fiber cement demand through 2019, aided by robust construction of new housing and commercial buildings. Fiber cement accounts for a larger share of siding demand in the West than in any other region.

Suppliers in the US fiber cement industry include James Hardie Building Products (Ireland), Elementia (Mexico) and Nichiha (Japan).
