US demand for gutters and downspouts is forecast to advance an average of 2.0% annually to $5.4 billion equivalent to 2.0 billion linear feet in 2025. Growth will be supported by:

  • increases in housing completions, particularly of single-family units, where the most gutters and downspouts are installed
  • the replacement of older or worn roofs – gutters and downspouts are often replaced as part of roof repair and replacement projects
  • rising interest in the use of gutters and downspouts to direct water away from residences and commercial structures to minimize damage to basements and building foundations

COVID-19 Pandemic Affects Residential & Commercial Markets Differently

The COVID-19 pandemic had a varying effect on demand for gutters and downspouts in 2020. The residential market did much better than expected in 2020 as home construction rebounded in the second half and strong storm activity boosted the need to replace and repair.

In contrast, the commercial market declined as many businesses – especially light commercial establishments that frequently occupy buildings with gutters and downspouts – canceled or delayed projects due to falling revenues. While demand is expected to rebound in 2021, this market will continue to be affected as fewer office buildings, restaurants, and retail outlets will be built or refurbished due to a glut of available space.

Gutter Guards Will See Most Rapid Demand Gains

Among all gutter and downspout products, gutter guards will see the fastest growth. These items – which prevent gutters from being clogged by fallen leaves, pine needles, and other debris – will see increasing use as homeowners install these items to minimize the need to periodically clean gutters, a time-consuming and potentially dangerous task. Metal gutter guards will continue to account for the largest share of demand, but plastic products will post above average gains due to their low cost and light weight, which boosts their appeal to those looking for a DIY project.

Dominance of Residential Market To Be Bolstered by Design & Construction Trends

The residential market will continue to be the leading outlet for gutters and downspouts. Not only do more than half of the residences in the US already feature gutters and downspouts – which often require replacement – more homeowners are embracing construction projects that encompass these products:

  • Homeowners looking to improve drainage around their residences will repair or place gutters, either as a standalone project or as part of more comprehensive roofing work.
  • Homeowners are also increasingly interested in installing systems with gutter guards to eliminate the need for periodic gutter cleaning.

Home design trends are leading to increased construction of homes with multiple gables, which both provide visual interest to a home and boost the amount of gutters required for proper drainage.
