Whereas many housing-related industries began recovering in 2011 and growing strongly in 2012, the Manufactured Home Dealers industry has stumbled over the five years to 2017, not recovering earnestly until 2015. With strong single-family home starts and sales, recent lows in unemployment and easier access to home mortgages, industry revenue has returned to growth. Over the past five years, the industry has experienced some consolidation. Stagnant revenue became a prominent concern for many companies as bankruptcy became widespread throughout the industry. Over the next five years, conditions are expected to be relatively stable for industry operators. Consumers will increasingly purchase manufactured homes as conventional housing prices and mortgage rates rise.
The Manufactured Home Dealers industry comprises retailers of new and used manufactured homes, parts and equipment in the United States. A manufactured home is a single-family home constructed entirely in a factory and then transported to the site and installed. This industry excludes modular homes, which are single-family homes constructed in sections off-site and assembled on-site.
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.
