Plumbing Fixtures

The $7.3 billion plumbing fixture market increased at a stronger rate during 2017, due to sharper gains in residential bathroom remodeling activity and strengthening price increases. As a result, plumbing fixtures outpaced gains in the overall kitchen and bath product market after lagging kitchen and bath product market trends over the past few years. Foreign-made products capture a significant share of U.S. sales, especially manufactures located in China and Mexico.

These and other plumbing fixture market trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look. This report provides data on sales by material and fixture type, as well as residential versus commercial sales, factors driving demand, distribution channels, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
