Plumbing Fixtures & Fittings

Plumbing Fixtures & Fittings

US demand for plumbing fittings and fixtures is forecast to reach $12.3 billion in 2019 on annual growth of 6.3 percent. Advances will be spurred by increases in building construction activity and design trends that call for structures -- especially single-family homes -- to have multiple bathrooms and larger kitchens with such amenities as multiple sinks.

Plumbing Fixtures Will See Faster Growth
Plumbing fixtures covered by the study include:
Bathtubs & Showers (bathtubs, whirlpool baths, bath and shower surrounds, and shower stalls)
Sinks (lavatories, kitchen sinks, and other sinks)
Toilets (water closet bowls, flush tanks, and urinals)
Other Fixtures (hot tubs and spas, drinking fountains, bidets, bottle filling stations, and other fixtures)

Demand for plumbing fixtures is forecast to rise at a faster pace than that of fittings through 2019. In addition to the higher per-unit cost of these items (supporting value gains), plumbing fixture demand will be boosted by increasing consumer interest in fixtures that offer enhanced aesthetics or performance properties. For instance, whirlpool bathtubs will see increasing use as homeowners add them for therapeutic purposes.

Plumbing Fittings Demand Supported by Increasing Use of Fixtures
Plumbing fittings discussed in the study include:
Lavatory Fittings
Bathtub & Shower Fittings
Kitchen & Other Sink Fittings
Other Plumbing Fittings

Demand for plumbing fittings will rise through 2019 as homes and other structures include more toilets, sinks, and other plumbing fixtures. However, value gains will be checked in the face of strong competition from less-costly imports. US producers will maintain a competitive position by offering products with superior water efficiency properties.
