Kitchen Cabinets and Residential Remodeling Activity Continue to
Drive the US Cabinet Market

Kitchen cabinets and residential remodeling applications account for the
majority of cabinet demand and will continue to do so going forward. As
remodeling activity continues to increase, homeowners will likely
upgrade kitchen cabinets to improve the aesthetics of their kitchen
space as well as boosting home values.

Ongoing Product Mix Shift Toward Semicustom and Custom Kitchen
Cabinets in Single-Family Housing

Despite the current dominance of stock kitchen cabinets due to the low
cost of these products, value demand in the US cabinet market is being
driven in part by a product mix shift, which is favoring increased usage
of semicustom and custom kitchen cabinets in single-family housing.
Through 2021, both semicustom and custom cabinets are projected to gain
share at rates well-above the market average.

Rising Consumer Demand for Charging Ports, LED Lighting, and
Other Amenities in All Cabinet Product Lines

Going forward, cabinetmakers will continue to boost the functionality of
their cabinets by including such amenities as light-emitting diode (LED)
lighting and charging stations for personal electronic devices. Cabinets
with charging stations or racks for smart phones, laptops, and tablet
computers are often seen as desirable by many homeowners as these
stations provide storage space for personal electronic devices that
otherwise may suffer damage from exposure to water or food products.
These items, which were once only seen in high-end semicustom and custom
cabinets, are expected to become standard features in many stock cabinet
varieties over the next decade.

Frameless Kitchen Cabinets Surging in Popularity in
Single-Family and Multifamily Housing

Due to recent design trends favoring more modern aesthetics, the
popularity of frameless kitchen cabinets has risen sharply in the past
decade. Not only do frameless cabinets meet the current design
requirements of many consumers, but also cost less than their
traditional face-frame counterparts, which has resulted in the rapid
adoption of frameless cabinets in many multifamily residences.
