Fencing demand in the US market is expected to grow nearly three percent per year through 2020. Strong gains in building construction activity will boost unit demand. Additionally, the increased usage of high value fencing materials such as ornamental metals will bolster value demand.
6 Materials Discussed in Depth
Plastic & Composite
There are a variety of materials that can be used in fencing, each with performance attributes and pricing points that affect their usage. Metal is the leading type and is expected to grow the fastest going forward. Demand for fencing materials such as ornamental metal will boost value gains, while growth in low cost fencing such as chain link will bolster unit demand.
