Ducker Worldwide provides the wall cladding industry market research and market analysis. This research drives our expertise in wall cladding product development. Many key industry groups such as BIA (Brick Industry Association), BOMA (Building Owners and Managing Association), MCA (Metal Construction Association) and NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) and their members have looked to Ducker Worldwide’s variety of custom studies for both residential and nonresidential wall cladding.
The residential market consists of several different siding, or cladding types. These include vinyl and metal siding, fiber-cement siding, stucco, EIFS, brick, concrete masonry (synthetic stone), and various engineered and natural wood sidings. It is a very diverse market with trends varying regionally. This attribute as well as others within the market can make it difficult for manufacturers, suppliers and distributors to determine customer and market needs as well as pursue their growth goals. Ducker Worldwide has assisted both association members and wall cladding companies with strategic planning and consulting related to product distribution, supply chain, and investment and acquisition consulting. Leading companies within the residential market include Alcoa, Associated Materials, CertainTeed, Glen-Gery, James Hardie, Louisiana-Pacific and Owens Corning.
The nonresidential or commercial market for wall-cladding products is quite different from residential. Although the nonresidential wall-cladding market contains similar cladding types, such as brick, stucco, and EIFS, it also contains architectural block, masonry, precast and tilt-up concrete. Nonresidential products also include a variety of metal cladding, such as aluminum composite material (ACM), insulated metal panels, profiled metal panels, and plate. Use of products in nonresidential construction is highly driven by regional differences and building type trends. The nonresidential market has a complex value and supply chain with many stakeholders influencing the decision, such as architects, general contractors, construction managers, various sub-contractors, fabricators, and other material suppliers. Ducker Worldwide offers clients the ability to directly understand the needs, wants, and concerns of stakeholders.
Industry players in the nonresidential market include companies such as Centria, Firestone Building Products, Hanson, Louisiana Pacific, Metl-Span, Nucor, Trespa and others.
A key shift throughout the wall cladding industry is private equity investment into private and public companies. Ducker Worldwide is a leader in wall cladding industry acquisition analysis, customer assessment and due diligence. The comprehensive network of wall cladding customers and companies allows Ducker to offer great access to the wall cladding industry.
