Competitive conditions intensified across all plumbing markets; though reduced activity in the housing construction market most negatively affected the industry. Demand will recover over the next five years, as the economy and new construction on residential and non-residential structures will benefit the industry. Also, growth in environmentally friendly practices will help industry players succeed in the future.
Industry contractors install and maintain plumbing fixtures, fittings, and equipment, ranging from work on household pipes and drains, to installation of gas cooking and heating appliances, 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, pipes and coupling products for projects.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
