US demand for cabinets is expected to expand 3.9% per year through 2012 to $18.5 billion. Residential buildings had the largest share of demand for cabinets in 2007, with 81 percent of the market. This market will continue to hold the lead position through 2012. Aesthetics will play a major role in the cabinet industry's growth. Price, however, will likely be the more important factor in low visibility applications such as office kitchens and industrial facilities. There is a growing trend of using more cabinets per kitchen.
