Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2014
Acoustical and insulation services have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5. This is indicative of favorable conditions for the buyer, despite growing demand, high specialization and low number of substitutes. “Buyers gain advantages due to high market share concentration, stable input costs and stable financial health of acoustical and insulation service providers,” says IBISWorld procurement analyst Keiko Cadby.
In 2009, the housing market crashed, affecting major industries like construction. In the three years to 2013, the recovering US economy has led to renewed demand for construction and related activities, which has fueled an upward trend in prices for acoustical and insulation services. “Nonresidential growth lags behind residential construction, which has been on the rise during the past three years,” says Cadby. This growth in demand has been favorable for suppliers, and prices are expected to gradually rise in the three-year period through 2016. Acoustical and insulation services are specialized and require experienced operators to create customized solutions for buyers, restricting buyer power. The availability of substitute services is low, because projects require specific tools and materials to properly insulate a building.
The low market share concentration within the acoustical and insulation market, however, is favorable for buyers. The majority of providers are small companies and nonemployers that compete heavily on price, boosting negotiating power for buyers. Although the few larger companies have advantages with value-added service options, the high number of smaller service providers give buyers a variety of options to choose from when sourcing acoustical and insulation services. Stable input costs and reliable financial health help guarantee that services will be completed within predetermined financial and time budgets. Buyers are encouraged to bundle their project needs when considering providers that offer additional services, and elicit multiple bids from vendors to increase options and encourage price competition. Major vendors include Performance Contracting Group, KHS&S Contractors, Acousti Engineering Company of Florida and Standard Drywall Inc.
