Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Prefabricated Wooden Building Manufacturing industry is one of the smaller manufacturing industries in Australia. Its products have been steadily losing ground to substitutes such as prefabricated metal, PVC and cement-fibre buildings. Metal prefabricated buildings have captured the largest share of the expanding mining, resources and infrastructure markets. As a result, prefabricated wooden building manufacturers have generally been unable to benefit from these massive boosts in demand. Industry operators tend to hold leading position in the household and backyard building market, manufacturing products such as granny flats, garden sheds, cubbyhouses, kit homes, kennels and pergolas.

More niche and customised products such as kit homes, granny flats and cubbyhouses have provided some relief for industry operators over the past five years.
