Market Dynamics

Several factors, such as durability, cost-effectiveness, and fire retardancy, are propelling product demand in furniture applications. These have unique features and advantages that make them appealing for furniture use cases. Fiber cement boards can be sculpted and molded into various shapes, and therefore are ideal for furniture production. They are suitable for use as tabletops, shelves, cabinets, and other furniture components. The value chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, product manufacturers/producers, distributors/suppliers, and industrial end-users. Raw materials used in the product manufacturing include cement, acrylic fiber, and other additives, which are derived from crude oil. The global industry comprises numerous raw material suppliers, who are involved in large-scale production of raw materials.

Most companies have forward and backward integrated into the value chain to optimize their operations to manage operational expenses and establish market dominance. Votorantim Cimentos, Ciment Quebec Inc., Indorama Corp., and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) have integrated their operations across the value chain, i.e., beginning from raw material supply, and product manufacturing, to product distribution/supply to end-users. Manufacturers cater to the needs of end-users through various ways. Most players distribute their products through distributors, sales offices, and sales representatives spread across different regions. Company-authorized distributors & specialized stores engaged in sales & distribution of building supplies are major offline channels for fiber cement boards.

In the U.S., fiber cement boards are commonly utilized in various building applications, such as siding, roofing, flooring, and interior wall cladding. Market in the country is likely to grow gradually owing to rising emphasis on sustainable and energy-efficient construction practices, which is expected to boost demand for these products in the U.S. construction industry. These boards are considered eco-friendly materials, resulting in their high demand on account of advantageous properties, such as durability, fire resistance, and low maintenance.

Type Insights

High-density fiber cement board (HDFCB) segment dominated the market and accounted for over 60.8% of revenue share in 2023 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. It is a cement-based composite made with cellulose fibers and other components. Over traditional building materials, like wood or gypsum boards, HDFCB has various advantages, such as superior strength, durability, and resilience to fire, water, & termite damage. Medium-density fiber cement (MDFC) board segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2023 owing to its strength and moisture & fire resistance properties. MDFC is a type of construction substrate that combines the strength of cement with the flexibility of wood fibers.It is often used in both interior and exterior applications. It is also resistant to warping, rotting, and termite attack, which provides it with a longer lifespan than traditional wood items.

Low-density fiber cement (LDFC) board segment is forecasted to grow at the highest CAGR of 13.3% from 2024 to 2030. It is a flexible building material that blends cement, cellulose fibers, and additives to produce a long-lasting and lightweight product. In terms of handling, installation, and performance, LDFC boards have various advantages.They are resistant to impact, weathering, decay, and insect infestation. Consequently, they are suitable for both internal and external applications, such as flooring, roofing, wall cladding, and decorative displays. High demand for lightweight construction materials is a major driver for LDFC boards segment growth. Compared to typical building materials, their low density and low weight make them easier to transport, handle, and install. LDFC boards appeal to builders and architects due to their moisture resistance and longevity.

Application Insights

On the basis of applications, the market is further segment into furniture, flooring, wall cladding & panels, prefabricated shelters, and other applications. Wall cladding and panels segment emerged as the largest application segment in 2023 with a revenue share of over 64.0% owing to high product demand as it provides protection against UV radiation and temperature variations. The application of fiber cement boards in wall cladding and panels has been growing owing to increasing urbanization, infrastructural development, and remodeling projects. Prefabricated shelters segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 13.6%, in terms of revenue, from 2024 to 2030.

Fiber cement board panels can be easily made and assembled in a factory setting, enabling faster completion than traditional on-site construction. Due to their ease of construction, prefabricated shelters are appealing for a variety of purposes, including crisis aid, temporary housing, and detached construction plants. Due to their durability, fire resistance, and sustainability, fiber cement boards are witnessing high demand in furniture design and manufacturing. However, fiber cement board in furniture applications is still in its early stages, with only a few producers specializing in this material.

Global Fiber Cement Board Market share and size, 2022

This provides a chance for futuristic furniture designers and producers to establish themselves in this specialized market. Fiber cement board is a persistent and adaptable material with many advantages for flooring applications. In addition, it is gaining popularity due to its resilience and resistance to moisture, pests, and fire, as consumers seek long-lasting and low-maintenance flooring solutions. The rise of fiber cement boards in flooring applications is also being driven by market demand for such flooring solutions.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific led the global market and accounted for a revenue share of nearly 36.4% in 2023. Government bodies in the region are making efforts to develop infrastructure, such as building hospitals, education hubs, commercial centers, and residential complexes. These factors, coupled with the increasing population, are expected to further boost the product demand for fiber cement boards in the region. The market in North America is predicted to grow significantly over the coming years owing to the rising demand for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient building materials. Rapid urbanization, renovation & remodeling operations and an emphasis on green building approaches have all contributed to regional market growth.

Fiber Cement Board Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030
