Knock on wood: A rise in housing starts will revive demand, but competition will threaten growth

Abstract

Lumber & Building Material Stores in the US

Over the past five years, the Lumber and Building Material Stores industry has struggled to rebuild itself, even as the overall economy strengthens. Industry goods are purchased by professional contractors and consumers engaged in remodeling and construction projects. Rising consumer confidence and household income have helped ignite remodeling activity forestalled during the recession, providing additional demand for lumber and other building materials used in home improvement projects. Even so, rising competition from large home improvement stores has stifled revenue growth for lumber and building material stores. After experiencing tough conditions following the recession, the housing and nonresidential construction markets are poised to continue to strengthen over the next five years. An increase in residential construction investment and higher spending on customized home improvements will drive industry revenue growth.


This industry consists of stores and dealers (e.g. lumberyards) that retail building materials such as lumber, hardwood, stones and brick. This industry also supplies cabinets, floor coverings, roofing materials, electrical and plumbing goods, doors and windows to the construction market. The industry does not include home improvement centers, paint and wallpaper specialty stores or hardware stores.

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.
