Cabinets

Demand for cabinets in the US will be spurred by a strong rebound in residential building construction and by design trends that promote the use of more cabinets.

US demand to reach $16 billion annually by 2018

US demand for cabinets is forecast to rise 6.6 percent annually to $16.0 billion in 2018, driven by a strong rebound in residential building construction. Kitchens and bathrooms will continue to claim a large share of square footage in new housing, boosting demand for cabinets as these rooms are the areas of a home where cabinets are most often installed. Builders will install more cabinets in these rooms -- such as by adding cabinets in kitchen islands or his-and-her bathroom vanities -- to provide aesthetically pleasing storage solutions. Further gains will be spurred by an acceleration in residential improvement and repair spending.

Design trends to aid rapid gains for kitchen cabinets

Among cabinet types, kitchen cabinets, which accounted for 81 percent of total demand in 2013, are expected to post the most rapid growth through 2018. In addition to the rebound in residential building construction, advances will be spurred by design trends that call for homes to have larger kitchens with such features as islands and breakfast bars. These kitchens are often equipped with more and larger cabinets to provide ample storage space. Many of these cabinets will offer value-added amenities that enhance convenience, such as pull-out shelves, storage racks, easy-to-open doors and light-emitting diode lighting.

Stock cabinets accounted for the largest share of kitchen cabinet demand in 2013. These cabinets see widespread use due to their low cost, ready availability, and ease of installation. Stock cabinets will remain the leading cabinet type installed in kitchens in 2018; however, demand for custom and semicustom cabinets will rise faster going forward.

Demand gains for bathroom cabinets will be spurred by design trends that call for multiple bathrooms. While smaller in size than kitchens, bathrooms feature cabinets -- such as medicine chests or vanities -- that provide storage space for personal items and cleaning supplies. Demand for other cabinets such as home office, home theater, and garage cabinets will be supported by interest in them as engaging storage alternatives to open shelving and free-standing furnishings.

Nonresidential market to hold solid growth prospects

Demand for cabinets in the nonresidential market will be fueled by solid growth in office, commercial, and institutional construction expenditures. Hotels, office buildings, and health care facilities use cabinets to provide secure yet attractive storage solutions. Also, a more favorable economic outlook will support consumer spending, spurring demand for store fix-ture cabinets. The small nonconstruction market for cabinets will be boosted by rebounding production of recreational boats, business jets, and RVs.
