Global Stair Stringer Market- Analyst Viewpoint

  • The global stair stringer market is poised to grow moderately over the next decade. Driven by the rising residential and commercial construction activities worldwide as well as refurbishment and renovation projects. The demand for wooden stair stringers is expected to remain strong as wood continues to be the material of choice for most high-end projects. However, growing concerns regarding the sustainability of wood coupled with its higher maintenance needs could shift some of the demand towards metal and plastic alternatives going forward. Emerging economies in Asia Pacific and Latin America are likely to provide numerous opportunities owing to strong infrastructure growth. The repair and renovation sector especially in developed countries will aid demand. Nonetheless, changing consumer preferences towards modern design stairs made of alternative materials as well as fluctuations in raw material prices remain challenges.
  • The North American and European regions, which account for more than half of the current global sales, are anticipated to witness steady demand in the long run. However, the market in developing Asian countries led by China, India and Southeast Asia seems poised to expand at a quicker pace on account of robust economic development and large-scale construction of residential complexes and commercial buildings. Among materials, while wood will continue dominating overall, non-wood variants like metal and plastic are gaining popularity owing to lower maintenance and higher durability. Leading manufacturers should explore options to expand into emerging markets through tie-ups with local players or via exports to tap
