Fencing Industry Overview

According to research reports, customers prefer it if their fences are installed by professionals, as opposed to DIY, as their placement and aesthetics in the premises play a crucial role in determining the value of the property. Increased consumer spending on home improvement activities, coupled with a rise in disposable incomes, is also expected to continue to drive growth.

From 2016 – 2021, the fence construction industry experienced growth supported by low borrowing costs, falling unemployment and rising incomes. These factors have led to rapid expansion of the US residential housing market in nearly all areas of the country, thus increasing the demand for fences. Additionally, renovation and remodeling activity have further supported industry growth.

Aluminum and PVC/Vinyl are the fence types experiencing the most growth owed to it’s durability and low maintenance. These are the fence types that many new construction neighborhoods are requiring.

The U.S. fencing market size was valued at $7.5 billion in 2016.  The domestic fence industry revenue has increased at a rate of 3.6% over a five year span to reach over $10.0 billion in 2021. Industry forecasts expect a 5.4% increase in 2022 alone and is anticipated to register a Compounded Annual Growth Rate of over 6% from 2021 to 2026.
