CLEVELAND, Ohio , March 14, 2022 (press release) –

A new Freedonia Group analysis forecasts demand for composite siding in the US is forecast to increase 1.8% annually through 2025 to 48,000 squares valued at $172 million. Factors supporting demand growth include:

  • increases in building construction
  • rising use of metal composite siding on commercial buildings
  • increased specification of plastic composite siding products on some higher-end homes

However, composite siding products are expected to be restrained by a lack of consumer and contractor familiarity with this type of siding and the high initial cost of many of these products compared to more mainstream materials, particularly vinyl.

Commercial Market to Drive Composite Siding Gains
The commercial market accounted for the majority of composite siding demand in 2020 and is expected to drive gains through 2025, according to the analysis. The light weight, durability, and aesthetic appeal of aluminum composite siding, for example, will lead to the increased adoption of this material on such commercial buildings as schools, healthcare facilities, government buildings, and car dealerships, where a metallic finish can provide a modern look while reducing the need for maintenance.

Faster adoption of these niche products will be restrained by the high cost of the material, as many cost-conscious institutional organizations and building owners opt for less expensive siding materials that provide comparable durability, even if they lack the same pleasing aesthetics.
