Scope and Methodology
The report data were obtained from government sources, trade associations, publications, business journals, company literature, and investment reports. It also identifies key trends affecting the marketplace, an overview on end users, and profiles major marketers, along with manufacturer strategies used to maximize growth and profitability.
Shipment statistics are derived from the U.S. Census of Manufacturers and are estimated and forecasted by SBI. Import and export data by major country of origin are derived from the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission. Historical data are provided for 2001 through 2005 with forecast data from 2006 to 2010. Price trends were tracked from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index.
The market size of siding is defined as the value of siding supplied to the total U.S. marketplace, in a particular period. Therefore, market size is determined by supply rather than demand. The U.S. siding market supply (henceforth referred to as market size) was calculated from the Department of Commerce statistics by collecting data from domestic plant shipments, adding imports, and extracting exports. As such, the formula for determining the siding market size will be Production in the U.S. + Balance of Trade [i.e. Shipments + (Imports - Exports)].
Also, note that the values are in net selling values, i.e., free on board (f.o.b.) from the manufacturing plant, and not the retail/wholesale price sold to the end consumer.
SBI designates the overall siding product business as the market, and the various product areas within the market as segments.
