The industry will continue to face challenges, despite an improving economy. Competition from big-box home improvement stores will threaten operators, with consumers choosing to make purchases from stores that offer a large variety of products and convenience. The recovering housing market will boost demand, however, as consumers look to repair or improve their homes and purchase hardware from industry operators.
Companies in this industry primarily retail a broad range of new home renovation equipment and supplies. Hardware, plumbing, electrical and paint-related tools are the most commonly stocked goods.
