Outdoor Furniture & Grills

The market will benefit from continued interest among consumers in extending their living space outdoors by constructing such areas as patios, porches and decks.

US demand to grow 4% annually through 2015

US demand for outdoor furniture and grill products is expected to increase 4.0 percent annually to almost $7 billion in 2015. This growth reflects an improvement over the 2005-2010 period, when reduced consumer spending on durable goods associated with the economic recession of the latter years limited demand for these products. The market for outdoor furniture and grill products (including patio heaters and accessories such as umbrellas, covers, cushions and grilling utensils) will benefit from continued interest among consumers in extending their living space outdoors by constructing such areas as patios, porches and decks.

The growing popularity of outdoor rooms designed to coordinate with the décor inside one’s home will further boost demand as consumers continue to invest in higher quality products. Continued increases in imports, particularly of inexpensive products from low-cost countries, will limit value gains to some degree.

Grills & accessories to be fastest growing segment

The grill and related accessories segment is expected to see the fastest demand growth through 2015, as consumers increasingly trade up to higher-end, more feature-intensive grills. However, the larger outdoor furniture and accessories segment -- which accounted for over two-thirds of value demand in 2010 -- will also experience solid demand growth, as above average demand growth for metal and wood furniture products balances slower demand growth for wicker, rattan and plastic products.

Expected housing rebound in to offer opportunities in residential market

Due to the dominance of the residential market, which accounted for nearly 95 percent of total outdoor furniture and grill demand in 2010, consumer spending and home decorating trends are significant drivers of demand. Residential consumers will continue to prefer more stylish, higher quality outdoor furniture and grill products that provide an extension of living spaces into the outdoors. Consumers are also increasingly trading in basic, inexpensive furniture for higher quality dining and conversation sets.

Going forward, the expected rebound in the housing market, combined with the continued popularity of outdoor rooms and home entertainment activities, will offer opportunities in the residential market. In the nonresidential market, which is significantly smaller than the residential market, demand will be driven by the continued popularity of outdoor dining and entertainment spaces at such establishments as restaurants, bars and hotels.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $5.7 billion US outdoor furniture and grill industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., outdoor furniture, cushions and covers, umbrellas and hammocks, grills, patio heating products), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential) and US geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including WC Bradley, Weber-Stephen Products and Agio International.
