US demand for plastic gutter and downspout products is forecast to rise 3.0% per year to $182 million equivalent to 99.1 million linear feet in 2025. Gutter guards – the products that are most commonly made of plastic – will account for the majority of sales gains. Gutter guards are increasingly utilized by homeowners to prevent gutters from being clogged by fallen leaves, pine needles, and other debris. Advances for plastic gutter and downspout products will also be supported by:

  • growth in housing completions, particularly of single-family units in 2020 and 2021, where the majority of plastic gutter and downspout products are installed
  • the replacement of older or worn products, as plastic products tend to have a shorter useful life compared to those made of metal
  • elevated DIY home renovation activity in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 Pandemic Spurs Surge in Home Renovations, Boosting Near-Term Sales

The COVID-19 pandemic had a net positive impact on the US plastic gutter and downspout products market. Demand increased 6.1% in 2020, driven largely by the surge in home renovation activity. As plastic gutter and downspout products are most commonly purchased for residential improvement and repair applications – which accounted for 94% of demand in 2020 – the spike in home improvements provided a robust sales boost. Plastic gutter and downspout products are especially popular for DIY home improvement projects due to their relatively low cost, ease of installation, and wide availability at retail locations.

Gutter Guards Continue to Grow Market Share

Through 2025, gutter guards are projected to increase their market share in value terms to 74%, driven by rising penetration of plastic in more material-intensive gutter guard applications, especially hoods and covers. The markets for plastic gutters and especially downspouts will remain small due to strong preferences for metal in these applications for their stronger aesthetic appeal and greater durability.

Gutter guards account for a higher share of plastic than of metal rainware product demand because plastic gutter guards can be used with gutters made of any material (though plastic is less likely to be specified for use with high-end gutter materials like copper, which is primarily chosen for its unique and higher end aesthetic). Gutter guards will see their share of the plastic gutter and downspout market grow due to the:

  • variety of available products (especially in terms of meshes and screens and foams and bristles)
  • generally lower cost of these products compared to metal gutter guards
