Published on Jan 06, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Exterior Sheathing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global exterior sheathing market reached a value of US$ 7.7 Billion in 2021. Exterior sheathing is generally used for providing an extra layer of shield against external elements. It is a board or panel material that is widely placed over walls, floors and roofs, which also provides additional structural support and protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays. It is usually manufactured using fiberboard, wood, cement, thermo-brace, and glass mat that offers improved strength to the frame structure while increasing the thermal resistance of the building. There has been a considerable rise in the adoption of sheathing materials due to the easy product availability via online and offline organized distribution channels.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
