Blind & Shade Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Blind & Shade Manufacturing in Canada

The Blind and Shade Manufacturing industry in Canada has profited from increased foreign regulations hindering imports' share of domestic demand. Over the five years to 2018, housing starts, residential renovation expenditure and a depreciating Canadian dollar supported the growing demand for industry products. Despite nonresidential construction and corporate profit experiencing volatile growth during the period, operators were able to strategically downsize operations and cut costs to grow industry profit. Industry operators have experienced growing demand due to the value of imports from China and the United States hindering total imports. The industry is expected to continue growing as foreign operators are not expected to bounce back from their loss of imports over the past five years.

Operators in this industry manufacture window coverings, including Venetian and other window blinds, shades, curtain and drapery rods and poles and other related fixtures. After production, window furnishings are distributed to wholesalers, retailers and contract outfitters. From there, they are sold to residential, commercial and institutional sectors. Curtains and draperies are excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
