Prefabricated Home Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Prefabricated Home Manufacturing in the US

Over the past five years, demand for less expensive, manufactured homes has spiked, allowing the Prefabricated Home Manufacturing industry to grow despite continued reduction in the price of its products. Declines in housing prices and conventional mortgage rates lowered the price of traditional homes and reduced the appeal of industry products as a cost-effective substitute. As a result, many companies were forced to exit the industry, merge with competitors or face acquisition. However, as the residential real estate market continues its recovery over the next five years, demand for manufactured and prefabricated homes will rise, though such products will continue to decline as a share of the overall housing market.

Companies in the industry produce manufactured (mobile) and modular (prefabricated) homes and buildings, as well as wood sections and panels for prefabricated buildings. Manufactured homes are constructed in a factory-controlled environment and often come equipped with wheels. Modular homes are manufactured in sections and then moved to the home site for final assembly.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
