The U.S. fiber cement market size was USD 2.25 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period.

The rise in advanced architecture practices is anticipated to boost market growth. Fiber cement is usually made of cellulose fiber combined with other cement materials. This cement gives the building contractors and engineers complete flexibility to design the least and most advanced typical structures for airports, malls, and cinema halls. Therefore, the increasing activity in the construction industry is surging the U.S. fiber cement market size.

The global cement industry experienced the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, halting the manufacturing operations of leading companies as a preventive measure. This resulted in a drastic decrease in the market share in the country’s construction industry due to disruptions in production by key manufacturers.

U.S. Fiber Cement Market Trends

Increasing Use of Fiber Cement in Exterior Wall Systems is the Prominent Trend in the Country

The consumption of fiber cement in sliding, cladding, and roofing applications has increased in the country due to the demand for exterior wall systems.  This wall setup provides the utmost safety and protection from harsh environmental conditions. On the other side, the country's government is encouraging construction activities focused on green buildings, where the exterior wall system plays a crucial role in reducing energy consumption. Thus, all these factors are anticipated to boost fiber cement consumption in the U.S.

U.S. Fiber Cement Market Growth Factors

Growing Demand for Advanced Construction Materials is anticipated to Drive Market Growth

The demand for the product has recently increased due to its use as an advanced building material in the construction industry. Over the past years, urbanization and industrialization in developing countries have influenced youngsters to move to metro cities for a better life and livelihood. This has increased residential construction, further surging the product demand. This product is used as a key raw material for constructing residential paving tiles, cladding, and sliding for exterior anti-moisture protection walls. Thus, the rise in construction demand is anticipated to boost the U.S. market growth.


Limitations on the Use of Fiber Materials to Hinder Market Growth

Rising health-related issues such as asthma and sinus in the country may hamper market growth. The fibrous material easily dissolves in the air and causes breathing-related issues. Therefore, the U.S. government imposed strict rules and regulations on using microfibrous material. For instance, The United States Environmental Protection Agency instructed on using and safely exposing fibrous silicate minerals in product manufacturing.
