Home Organization Products

As Quoted In Home Channel News

Demand for home organization products will benefit from the introduction of decorative and specialty products, as well as by growth in larger, more costly closet and garage systems.

US demand to grow 4% annually through 2017

US demand for home organization products will increase 4.0 percent per year to $9.4 billion in 2017. The market weakened during the economic downturn that began in 2007, but an ongoing recovery -- particularly a rebound in residential construction and an acceleration in consumer spending -- will support demand going forward. Increases will also be driven by the introduction of decorative and specialty home organization products as well as by strong growth in larger, more expensive closet and garage systems. Preventing even more rapid growth will be a downward pressure on prices caused by the commoditization of many home organization products and competition from producers in low manufacturing cost countries. The well known production methods for many of these products restrain manufacturers’ pricing power.

Bins, baskets & totes to remain dominant

Bins, baskets, and totes accounted for the largest share of home organization product sales in 2012, with 36 percent of the total market. These products, which can be decorative or purely functional, are widely used in most households to store and organize belongings of all sizes. Demand for modular units is expected to post the strongest annual gains among home organization products through 2017, allowing these systems to overtake shelving as the second largest product segment. Advances will be supported by the flexibility provided by modular units and by the interest in organizing closets and garages, which account for the majority of modular unit sales.

Garages to post fastest growth among rooms

Sales of organization products used in the garage will see the fastest growth of any segment. To some degree, this reflects the relative immaturity of the garage storage market compared to other areas of the home. However, use of home organization products in garages has risen rapidly, and by 2012 garages had overtaken family rooms as the second leading application for these products. Continued increases in both the share of homes with garages and the average size of garages, coupled with consumer desires to make the space suitable for hobbies or other activities, will support the market for garage storage products. Demand for home organization products used in closets will also achieve above average growth, aided by the rising popularity of high end closet systems made from solid wood or laminated panels, and by rising consumer demand for closet systems beyond the master bedroom. The increasing availability of closet storage products in a variety of retail outlets and at a range of price points will also boost growth.

Study Scope

Details on these and other findings are available in the Freedonia industry study, Home Organization Products. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by material, product, room, and market. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 33 industry competitors such as Sterilite, Emerson Electric, and Newell Rubbermaid.
