US cast polymer demand will grow 3.6% annually through 2012. Gains will be driven by engineered stone based on its resistance to stains, impacts and moisture and its ability to have a wide range of colors and embedded materials. Solid surface products will remain the largest segment. This study analyzes the 222 million square foot US cast polymer industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by material (e.g., marble, resins, alumina trihydrate, quartz); product (e.g., solid surface, engineered stone, synthetic stone veneers); end use (e.g., countertops); and regional market. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 major players, including DuPont, Cosentino, Cambria, Wilsonart, Mitsubishi, and Formica.
