Cleveland OH, October 5, 2021 – Hardscaping sales are expected to remain elevated in the short-term due to an ongoing pandemic-related demand surge for professional-grade improvement projects for outdoor living spaces, according to a new Freedonia Group analysis:
As economic conditions improved in 2020 and 2021, demand for these higher value projects soared, but labor shortages, long wait times, and supply chain slowdowns caused some projects to be deferred further. As these restraints continue to become less of a factor, more delayed projects will be completed, boosting growth for hardscaping products through the short term.
Like homeowners, commercial property owners are placing emphasis on creating outdoor spaces that can serve their needs. The COVID-19 pandemic heightened this emphasis even further, as patios for outdoor dining and socialization became a necessity for many businesses, notably restaurants and bars, to operate profitably during the pandemic. Looking forward, these trends are expected to continue as more property owners see the value in having attractive and functional outdoor areas, promoting installations of patios, walkways, walls, and edging.
