US demand for outdoor furniture and grills will grow four percent annually through 2011. Demand will benefit from the increasing popularity of patios, porches and decks, and from lifestyle trends such as "cocooning" and "outdoor rooms". Patio heating products will lead gains, followed by the much larger grill segment.
This study analyzes the $6.2 billion US outdoor furniture and grill industry. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001, 2006) and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product (outdoor furniture, cushions and covers, grills, grill parts and grilling utensils, patio heating products), market (e.g., single unit housing, multiple-unit housing, manufactured housing, nonresidential buildings) and US geographic subregion.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 44 major players including WC Bradley, Weber-Stephen Products, Agio International, Brown Jordan, and Home Casual.
