U.S. decorative laminate sales to exceed 12 billion square feet in 2013.
The study also says that cabinets are expected to remain the leading market for decorative laminates in 2013, with demand for laminates reaching about three billion square feet. Advances will be derived from the rebounding housing market, as increasing housing completions will spur demand for cabinets in new housing. However, gains will be restrained by increasing competition from cabinets made from other materials, especially solid wood.
