This Specialists in Business Information report provides insights into the U.S. market for Swimming Pool Equipment and Maintenance Products. While CAGR for the 2002-2006 period was at 8%, the market will likely tread water for 2007 and 2008 as the industry deals with certain economic factors such as higher interest rates and declining home values in key markets. New pool construction will most likely slow, but manufacturers’ businesses will be sustained by product innovation and residential pool renovation during the period.
Even with slowing growth in GDP and a 2006-2007 housing bust, the relatively young pool products industry has the potential for continued growth in the long term. Pool products have a stable consumer base, which acts as a cushion during slower economic periods and when new pool installation may be low. Favorable demographic trends may also help to boost the market, as will end-user interest in product innovation and design trends.
