The Carpentry and Joinery Timber Manufacturing industry is heavily reliant on trends in the housing and non-residential building markets. Over the past five years, manufacturers have faced weak demand from the single-unit house construction market, which is typically the most important source of sales. The industry has derived some stimulus from the strong growth in dwelling commencements over the past five years. However, much of this has been focused on the multi-unit apartment market, which typically uses aluminium rather than timber window frames.
Industry operators are primarily engaged in manufacturing carpentry and joinery timber products, such as wooden doors, wooden window frames, prefabricated wooden panels and wooden cabinets.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
