Countertops

As Quoted In Home Channel News

US demand for countertops is forecast to advance 4.8 percent annually through 2015. Gains in the key residential market will be promoted by a rebound in housing completions and by increasing repair and improvement spending. Furthermore, growing interest in making homes more marketable will benefit higher-value countertop materials.

This study analyzes the 600 million square foot US countertop industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by material (e.g., laminates, solid surface, natural stone, engineered stone, tile, cast polymers), product (e.g., kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops) and market (residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including Wilsonart, Formica and Panolam.
