Rising Building Construction Spending to Fuel Gains in the Plumbing Fixtures Market

Plumbing Fixtures in the US

Rising building construction spending will drive gains. Further bolstering demand will be design trends that call for homes to have larger kitchens and more bathrooms. In the commercial market, plumbing fixture demand gains will be supported by spending on plumbing fixture-intensive buildings, such as schools and healthcare facilities.

Key Findings in the Plumbing Fixtures Study

Residential Construction Spending to Drive Gains

An expansion in single-family housing construction will boost demand through the installation of multiple plumbing fixtures, including toilets, sinks, and lavatories. New homes are being constructed with larger kitchens and more bathrooms in order to accommodate consumer preferences. Additionally, many existing homes are expected to undergo renovations to mirror these trends as homeowners look to make their properties more luxurious while increasing property value.

Commercial Building Construction Expansion to Bolster Fixture Sales

Commercial building construction activity is expected to rise through 2021. Spending on buildings such as schools, healthcare facilities, and offices will drive demand growth for plumbing fixtures, as most of these structures contain several bathrooms and large kitchens.

Rising Demand for Water-Efficient Plumbing Fixtures

Demand for plumbing fixtures will be boosted by the increased popularity of water-efficient products in both residential and commercial applications. State-level mandatory standards and/or financial incentive programs regarding the water efficiency of plumbing fixtures such as toilets and urinals will boost demand for these higher-value products. Additionally, manufacturers are making technological advancements to improve the performance of water-efficient fixtures.
