Tile & Marble Stores
The Tile and Marble Stores industry has experienced revenue contraction over the five years to 2017. Though many conditions tied to industry demand, including the number of new housing starts and level of disposable income, have rebounded from recessionary levels and shown increases over the past five years, strong competition from big-box home improvement stores has inhibited growth. The small operators that comprise the majority of the industry have found themselves unable to compete with these stores, and therefore the number of industry establishments and employment has trended downward in tandem with revenue. Over the next five years, these trends are expected to remain steady, though industry revenue is expected to contract at a significantly slower rate over the five years to 2022.
This industry primarily sells tile and marble slabs through direct and electronic retail sale. The industry does not include mass merchants or home improvement stores, but it does include the retail locations of vertically integrated tile and marble manufacturers.
