Piping up: Accelerating housing markets and green building regulations will boost demand



Abstract

Plumbers in the US

From unclogging household drains to installing high-pressure industrial steam pipes, the Plumbers industry's activities span a wide range of liquid and gas-conveying pipe work. Since the industry's performance is so closely linked to building markets and consumer spending, which determines the extent to which households renovate kitchens and bathrooms, housing market fluctuations led to a moderate increase in volatility over the past five years. Still, steady increases in the value of residential and nonresidential construction, consumer spending and corporate profit supported industry revenue throughout the period. Furthermore, the industry benefited throughout this period from steady demand for long-term facilities' maintenance and repairs, which consumers generally cannot put off. In the coming years, accelerating downstream construction markets and expanding economic activity are forecasted to boost the industry's performance.

Industry contractors install and maintain plumbing fixtures, fittings and equipment. Industry activities include work on household pipes and drains, installation of gas cooking and heating appliances and work on bathroom and toilet fixtures and venting systems. Emergency repair work (e.g. unclogging drains or repairing burst water mains) represents a significant source of industry revenue. Contractors may also supply plumbing appliances and coupling products for construction projects.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
