Blind & Shade Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Blind & Shade Manufacturing in the US

The Blind and Shade Manufacturing industry has experienced volatility over the five years to 2019. While building markets have grown strongly since the economic downturn, consumers have remained fiscally hesitant, looking for ways to cut costs. Many existing homeowners have not upgraded blinds and shades while some new homebuyers have opted for less expensive imports, stunting growth even as construction markets have risen. Nevertheless, rising consumer confidence and spending in recent years have boosted demand for industry products. Despite growth prospects, operators are forecast to continue exiting the industry. Larger businesses will continue to merge and acquire smaller failing operators that are struggling to deal with volatile input costs and rising foreign competition.

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 markets. 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.
