Outdoor Furniture & Grills

As Quoted In Pathway Cafe

Rising interest in decorating outdoor spaces as if they were indoor rooms will spur gains; this trend will lead consumers to buy higher-value pieces that coordinate with their interior designs.

US demand to rise 4% annually through 2017

The US outdoor furniture and grill market is expected to grow 4.0 percent per year to $7.5 billion in 2017, rebounding from the declines of the recession-impacted 2007-2012 period. Rising interest in decorating outdoor spaces as if they were indoor rooms will spur gains; this trend will lead consumers to buy higher-value pieces that coordinate with their interior designs, thus expanding living space to the outdoors. Sales will also grow along with demand for products such as fire pits and patio heaters which enable consumers to extend the outdoor season. The popularity of outdoor dining and recreation, paired with state and local regulations limiting or banning smoking indoors, will aid gains for outdoor furniture and grills in all regions.

Residential market to remain key outlet

Demand for outdoor furniture and grills is dominated by the residential market, which accounted for over 90 percent of sales in 2012; for this reason, recoveries in the housing market and consumer spending have been important stimulants of demand since 2010 and will continue to be so through 2017. Demand in the smaller nonresidential market -- primarily from lodging and restaurants -- is anticipated to improve as well. Pent-up replacement demand will support growth as these venues continue to recover from the 2007-2009 recession.

Patio heating products to be fastest growing types

Outdoor furniture and accessories will see 4.0 percent annual growth through 2017, benefiting from the extension of indoor-style decorating to patios and decks. Furniture gains will stem from interest in motion pieces, such as swiveling chairs, and from purchases of higher-value deep seating, with cushions that resemble those found on indoor chairs and sofas.

Demand for grills and grilling accessories will grow 3.5 percent per annum, the slowest rate of the product groups, but representing a healthy rebound from the declines suffered during the 2007-2012 period. While most consumers cannot afford high-end outdoor kitchens, their awareness of the trend will stimulate higher-value grill purchases. In addition, there is growing interest in owning more than one grill; some homeowners enjoy multiple preparation techniques, such as smoking or frying, while others purchase portable grills for tailgating and camping.

Patio heating products, including patio heaters and fire pits that allow outdoor spaces to be used comfortably even in cooler weather, will see the fastest growth through 2017, albeit from a small base. This product segment has a spillover impact since consumers spend more on outdoor furnishings when they can be used for a greater part of the year.
