Manufactured Housing Increasing export focus –e.g. Confederation Log Homes But foreign markets dont like dealing with Ontario companies, because they lack critical mass Strategy to go after traditional domestic stick built market first?
2. EWPs Product Life Cycle Introductory Growth Maturity Decline Stage Stage Stage Stage 2 nd /3 rd Generation EWPs 2 nd Generation Wall Panels Species Segregated Softwood Lumber Composites Custom Orders Installed Sales New Laminate Technologies (fibre polymers) Eastern SPF MSR I-Joists PSL & LSL Eastern SPF FJ Commodity LVL Commodity OSB Glulam Parallam Commodity Eastern SPF framing lumber Variable quality Dimension lumber -Building components account for 14% of total VA sales with 11% CAGR, but last two years growth at 28%, again driven by buoyant housing starts.
3. Millwork -Windows and doors account for 13% of total VA sales, with compound annual growth rate of 7%, but 16% in last 2 years, driven by high Canadian housing starts -However, window and door markets moving rapidly away from wood usage towards vinyl and steel respectively -Other millwork (moldings, stairs, flooring, etc.) = 22% of total, with a CAGR of 15%, and stable at 13% recent growth -Also, many of these products are moving away from solid wood towards FJ, MDF and composites
Millwork - Flooring the solid wood flooring market is rapidly giving way to engineered wood flooring one piece of solid wood can provide up to 6 surfaces on an EWF built on an composite substrate, EWF can go straight onto concrete and doesnt move like solid SolidEngineered
4. Furniture –Furniture = 36% of total VA sales with CAGR of 12%, falling to 1% in last two years –Perfect storm for most of industry as retail markets convert to RTA and imports; quality and design still important but becoming more of a niche market –Also large anticipated boom in office furniture
5. Cabinets –Cabinets are a very regional market business unless standardized sizes –Cabinets = 15% of total VA with CAGR of 11% and reasonably strong recent growth = 9% –Cabinet demand will double in 10 years driven by new home construction and home renovations
