Market Synopsis: Global Fiber Cement Rainscreen Panels Market


The construction industry has witnessed significant growth in the past few years, owing to an increased demand for buildings that use fiber cement panels, which are energy efficient materials. Fiber cement rainscreen panels offer effective solutions for temperature control and insulation while also meeting aesthetic requirements. These panels not only provide a range of benefits to buildings including protection against weather conditions, acoustic insulation, and fire protection but also ensures easy and quick installation and extended durability.


Fiber cement rainscreen panels are much more preferred over traditional roof panels and concrete panels as these panels are energy efficient and help in reducing the time required to complete construction projects. Since the focus on energy efficiency and economic feasibility in the construction industry has increased, the market for fiber cement rainscreen panels is anticipated to witness a tremendous growth rate during the forecast period. The increasing adoption rate of fiber cement rainscreen panels in the past few years can be attributed to their cost-effectiveness, which has created lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers.


However, the growth of the market might be hindered by the stringent regulations regarding the manufacturing of fiber cement panels products for rainscreen panels.


In 2018, the global fiber cement rainscreen panels market was valued at USD 35,250 Million and is expected to witness 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study of the market is 2018 and the forecast period for the global fiber cement rainscreen panels market is 2019 to 2024.
