CLEVELAND, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for ceiling products is forecast to reach $2.4 billion on annual growth of 4.1% through 2021, driven by office and commercial construction spending as well as a shift toward higher quality products in the nonresidential market. Ceiling demand in terms of square footage noticeably trails value gains due to increasing open ceiling plans in many large nonresidential buildings. These and other trends are presented in Ceilings Market in the US, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.
Office buildings, retail stores, schools, and hospitals are intensive users of ceiling products; increases in construction spending on such structures will promote value and area demand for ceiling products. Specialty products will be the fastest growing in the nonresidential market with 6.4% annual growth through 2021. According to analyst Matthew Hurley, "Products such as clouds, baffles, and stretch ceilings are better able to meet the modern office and commercial design trends than more traditional ceiling products."
Residential demand for ceiling products is projected to advance 3.8% per annum through 2021, representing a continuing rebound from the overall contraction suffered between 2006 and 2016 because of the housing crisis. The new residential market will lead advances as housing completions rise from their 2016 levels. Area demand in the residential market for ceilings will remain flat over the forecast period as drywall remains the dominant ceiling covering in this market. While single-family homes account for most residential demand, as they make up the majority of housing space in the United States, ceiling products are used somewhat more intensively in multifamily dwellings, as they are often installed in common areas.
