World Plumbing

World demand for plumbing products are forecast to grow over five percent annually. Advances in North America will be fueled by a rebound US housing construction. The Asia/Pacific market is also expected to post solid growth in plumbing product demand through 2018, benefiting from continued strong gains in building construction spending.

This report segments the plumbing product industry by region, country, product, type, and material. Data are provided in million dollars.
Plumbing products can be divided into fixtures and fittings. Types of fixtures include:
Bathtubs and showers
Toilets
Sinks

Plumbing fixtures are further divided into material segments, including:
Plastic
Metal
Ceramic

Types of fittings include:
Lavatory
Bathtub and Shower
Kitchen and Other Sink

Plumbing fittings accounted for the majority of plumbing product demand in 2013 and are expected to continue to do so in 2018, when they will represent 57 percent of the market. Plumbing fixtures and fittings are expected to post similar gains through 2018, as fittings demand is driven primarily by demand for fixtures. Among the product types, bathtubs and showers are expected to post solid gains both as fixtures and fittings.

Major plumbing product markets include:
Residential Buildings (new and improvement/repair)
Nonresidential Buildings (new and improvement/repair)

The residential market accounted for about three-fifths of demand in 2013. It is expected to post faster growth through 2018, benefiting from housing market rebounds in the US and many countries in Western Europe.

This study covers the following six world regions as well as 23 countries:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Asia/Pacific region will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2018, led by continued solid gains in China. Other industrializing countries in the region, including India and Indonesia, are also expected to post strong gains in plumbing product demand.

Participating companies include Duratex, Duscholux, Fortune Brands, Kohler, LIXIL, Masco, Roca, Sanitec, TOTO, and Villeroy & Boch.
