Global Fencing Market - Snapshot

Demand for high value fencing materials such as ornamental metals, plastics and composites are increasing. Fencing products made of metals dominate the global fencing market. The main reason consumers across the world prefer metal fencing (wrought iron, aluminum, or chain link fences) is because they have less maintenance cost compared to other types such as wood fence. North America and Europe are seeing an increasing demand for metal fences compared to wood fences. Thus, demand for high value fences including metal fences are increasing across the world.

Governments across the world are expected to increase spending on construction of new buildings and beautifying parks, public locations, etc. Governmental institutions are projected to generate demand for fences. Rise in government spending on construction of amusement parks across the world is expected to increase the demand for fences from the government sector.

Fences are either made of metal, wood, and plastic and composites. Fences are used in residential, commercial, and agriculture sectors. Major demand for fences comes from the residential sector. In the commercial sector, chain link fencing are seeing increasing demand as they provide better protection and service compared to other types of fences. Presently there is a rise in demand for fences made of plastics and composites such as vinyl. Developed regions such as North America and Europe are seeing a rising demand for low-cost imported fencing products. However, imposition of tariffs on aluminum, steel, and Canadian softwood lumber is increasing the price of fencing products made from these raw materials. All these factors are affecting the global demand for fencing products.

In terms of supply, a major portion of the fencing products are manufactured in low-cost Asia Pacific countries such as China. Most fencing product manufacturers are small and medium players operating in the market. According to Long Fence, a U.S. based fencing products manufacturer, the number of businesses operating in the fencing market is 99,939 as of June 2018. Thus,the global fencing market is highly fragmented. Although the import of fencing products is rising in the U.S., market players such as Ameristar Fence Products and Jerith Manufacturing (both part of the Assa Abloy Group and based in the U.S)., have their fencing manufacturing facility located in the U.S. Thus, both import of fencing products and in-house manufacture operate in the North America and Europe fencing market.
