Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

The Wooden Structural Component Manufacturing industry produces a range of wooden building products used in building construction activities. These include roof trusses, joinery products, doors, windows and kitchen cabinet products.

Wooden roof trusses and wall frames

Wooden roof trusses and wall frames make up the industry's largest product segment, due to the widespread use of these items in housing construction. Some major companies have developed strong branding for these products, such as Carter Holt Harvey and their LASERframe product. IBISWorld expects that this segment accounts for 28.5% of industry revenue in 2016-17. This amount has fallen as a proportion of industry revenue over the past five years due to increased competition from steel framing.
