Builders' Hardware

Builders' Hardware

U.S. builders’ hardware sales have been recovering in line with the rebound in window and door sales. The rebound has been driven by the surge in new home building since 2011. Demand has also benefited from the upturn in existing home sales as interest rates remained at relatively low rates and household finances improved. Over the past year, demand has begun to rebound in commercial and industrial markets, while institutional markets remain sluggish.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Builders’ Hardware. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
