Plumbing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Plumbing in Canada

The Plumbing industry in Canada is one of many subcontracting industries essential to the residential and nonresidential building markets, as plumbers are needed to both install systems for new construction and to repair and maintain the systems of existing structures. Residential renovation, in particular, has been a major source of revenue for the industry over the past five years. Maintenance and repair of existing equipment also account for a significant share of revenue, lending a stable source of revenue to the industry when construction markets fluctuate. Therefore, over the five years to 2019, industry revenue is expected to increase. Over the five years to 2024, expanding downstream construction markets and increasing economic activity are forecast to bolster the industry's performance.

This industry installs and services plumbing fixtures, fittings and equipment. Industry activities include work on household pipes and drains, installation of gas cooking and heating appliances and work on bathroom and toilet fixtures and venting systems. Emergency repair work (e.g. unclogging drains or repairing burst water mains) represents a significant source of industry revenue. Contractors may also supply plumbing appliances, pipes and coupling products for projects.

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.
