First Look On Fasteners And Nails

First Look On Fasteners And Nails

U.S. fastener and nail sales growth strengthened in 2007 and could experience even stronger gains during 2018. Stronger growth reflects sharper gains for OEM purchases and continued increases in residential and nonresidential construction spending. Price gains are also contributing to growth. However, rising material and labor costs are putting pressure on profit margins.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Fasteners and Nails. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment.
