CLEVELAND, OH — Moulding and trim demand in the United States is forecast to increase 2.1% per year through 2011 to $11 billion, according to Moulding & Trim, a new study by industry research firm The Freedonia Group

The study attributes the advances to healthy new nonresidential construction activity. The study also says the residential building market will continue to dominate moulding and trim demand through 2011, that interior mouldings are the largest product segment of the moulding and trim market and that value demand for stairwork products will slow significantly through 2011.
