Report Outlook

North America Rainscreen Cladding Market size was valued at USD 40.70 billion in 2023. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 43.56 billion in 2024 to USD 76.23 billion by 2032, exhibiting the CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.

Market Overview

Increasing growth of the North America rainscreen cladding market share can be attributed to growth in residential & non-residential construction industry across the region. Rainscreen cladding systems demand is increasing due to its durability. A type of building material called rainscreen cladding is used to shield a building's outer walls from the weather and precipitation. It consists of several panels that are affixed to the building's outer wall. The panels are typically composed of wood, metal, plastic, or a mix of materials. Because of its appealing aesthetic appeal, energy efficiency, and durability, this form of cladding has grown in popularity among architects and builders in North America. Therefore, the growth of the market is rising over the forecast period. 

The increased need for moisture management technologies, government regulations, and the need for environmentally friendly infrastructure are the some of the factors that are creating growth opportunities for the North America rainscreen cladding market.

  • For instance, in May 2023, Kebony announced the introduction of a new 1" x 8" profile for Click-In Cladding solution (CCS), a rainscreen solution designed specifically for interior accent walls and the region's building sector. This is the only 1 "x8" wood cladding product in North America to offer real hidden fastening due to Grad's Mini Rail system that precisely secures Kebony cladding into place swiftly and efficiently.

Demand for rainscreen cladding systems is increasing because of its capacity to control airflow, lessen thermal movement through walls, minimize overheating in the summer, and maintain stable internal temperatures in the winter. Climate control and energy efficiency are rising to the top of the priority list, propelling the industry.

Furthermore, another factor that is boosting the North America rainscreen cladding market size is the adoption of advanced technology and innovation in cladding materials. The most popular cladding techniques for modern construction projects are face-sealed and screen-drained systems because they completely enclose the building structure and prevent rainwater from penetrating these shields' innards. Rainscreen cladding constructions are generally more technologically advanced than formal techniques. They present a promising avenue for the sustainable construction initiatives that different governments are pursuing to achieve success.

However, the increasingly high cost of cladding materials at the initial stage of construction is the key factor hampering the market growth. Rainscreen cladding systems can be rather expensive to install initially, which could be a problem for building projects with limited funding.

Growth Factors

Rising use of green building materials in the construction industry.

The rising awareness of using green building materials in construction has fueled the adoption of rainscreen cladding and that has driven the global market growth at a rapid pace. An environmentally friendly building structure is built using green building components. They are employed in the construction of environmentally friendly buildings that support the preservation of the natural order. The usage of such materials can alleviate several environmental concerns, such as atmospheric pollution, loss of biodiversity, abnormal climate change, ingestion of water supplies, and land natural resource depletion. Green building materials are superior to traditional construction materials because of these advantages.

Furthermore, the requirement for green building materials is anticipated to rise throughout the forecast period as a result of developed country governments implementing incentives and policies to promote green construction. The North America rainscreen cladding market size will expand as more people choose green building materials over conventional ones for construction projects. By decreasing carbon footprints, the materials help to mitigate global warming. These materials are inexpensive, simple to maintain, and environmentally and energy-friendly. When compared to more conventional building materials, these advantages make them the perfect option. Therefore, the rising use of green building materials has increased the market demand for rainscreen claddings, which has driven the North America rainscreen cladding market share over the forecast period.

Increase in governments guidelines for energy efficiency

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), the National Building Code of Canada, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and a few other organizations have established guidelines, standards, and policies that control the North America rainscreen cladding market size. Since a building's protective systems can affect its total energy performance, the industry must adhere to strict regulations. Structural engineers are also needed to handle cladding loads and vibrations of the building and façade. Standards and regulations also assist engineers in analyzing the technical requirements for rainscreen cladding's build-up, service, and maintenance. This is an important concern since it tells architects and their clients about the ongoing operational costs of the structure. Therefore, the favorable regulations of the government that support construction are driving the North America rainscreen cladding market growth opportunities over the forecast period.

Restraining Factors

Increase strict regulatory compliance which increase the installation cost likely to impede the market growth.

The rising regulatory compliance for using materials in the construction of buildings that are increasing construction costs is the factor that is impeding the growth of the market over the forecast period. Adherence to varied local building norms and laws can be a limitation since different requirements may need personalized solutions, thus raising the expense and difficulty of the rainscreen cladding installation procedure.

By Raw Material Insights

Terracotta segment is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

The terracotta segment will grow at a rapid pace due to its various beneficial qualities and features, such as weatherproof qualities, resilience to fire, low maintenance requirements, and durability. When combined terracotta with other materials like paint, stone surfaces, and glass, terracotta cladding is utilized to create panel designs. Smooth-finished exposed bricks can have a similar appearance as a result of terracotta preservation. These panels come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes and can be purchased glazed or unglazed. The building industry is anticipated to experience a significant rise in demand for terracotta rainscreen cladding systems due to its durability, resistance to harmful ultraviolet rays, and ease of the recycling process.

The high-pressure laminates segment led the market with a substantial revenue share in 2023. Decorative resin paper and several core layers make up high-pressure laminate. Because of their strength, resilience to impact, ease of maintenance, capacity to be customized, and availability in attractive colors and textures, high pressure laminate claddings are predicted to become more and more popular for use as rainscreen cladding.

By Application Insights

Commercial segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The commercial segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period.
