Industrial Designers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Industrial Designers in the US

Industrial designers are hired primarily by manufacturers to improve the functionality, longevity and production efficiency of a range of goods. Over the past five years, increased consumer spending on cars, furniture and other durable goods has stimulated downstream demand for the Industrial Designers industry. The rebound of these downstream industries from tepid demand earlier in the period has vitalized their total spending on research and development (R&D), translating to greater use of the industry's services. Similarly, the continued increase in US healthcare spending has strengthened medical equipment manufacturing, thus boosting demand for industrial designers to produce new medical products. Over the coming years, consumers will increasingly seek highly differentiated, aesthetically pleasing and efficient products ranging from cars to electronics to furniture, generating sustained demand for industrial designers. Furthermore, as corporate profit strengthens, manufacturers are expected to dedicate larger portions of their budgets to R&D and increasingly outsource industrial design services to industry operators.

This industry includes companies that primarily develop designs and specifications for mass-produced products. Services include deciding the materials, construction, mechanism, shape, color and surface finishes of products to improve their market appeal, production, use and maintenance. For example, industry operators design automobiles, furniture and packaging.

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.
