US plumbing fixture and fitting demand will reach $10.9 billion in 2010. Gains will be supported by repairs and improvements and ongoing trends toward larger bathrooms and kitchens. Higher value fixtures such as whirlpool bathtubs and hot tubs will do well. Solid growth is expected for lavatory, bathtub and shower fittings.
This study analyzes the US plumbing fixture and fitting industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by material (e.g., vitreous china, plastics, metal), by fixture and fitting type (e.g., bathtub and shower, sink, toilet, lavatory, hot tub and spa, drinking fountain, bidet, deck, lawn and hose, drain and overflow), by market and by geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 29 major players including Masco, Kohler, Moen, American Standard, Jacuzzi, MAAX, Tomkins, Crane Plumbing, and Elkay Manufacturing.
