Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Commercial carpets have a buyer power score of 3.4 out of 5, reflecting market conditions that are currently favorable for buyers. There are over 1,300 suppliers providing commercial carpet at the manufacturing and wholesale levels. However, consolidation has been rising among all suppliers in the market. With fewer suppliers to choose from and increasing market share concentration, negotiation power is beginning to tip in favor of suppliers, says IBISWorld analyst Kiera Outlaw. Consequently, commercial carpet price growth has been moderate over the past three years and is forecast to accelerate at a faster pace in the three years to 2016.
Over the past three years, the price of inputs, such as synthetic fiber, have increased production costs for manufacturers and pushed up purchasing costs for distributors. At the same time, the rising trend of consolidation and vertical integration has lessened the pool of suppliers, facilitating stable commercial carpet price growth, says Outlaw. Moreover, a rebound in nonresidential construction and corporate profit margins resulted in increased demand for commercial carpet. Despite the volatility in input and external demand drivers, the price of commercial carpet displayed low volatility in the three years to 2013.
Raw material prices are forecast to rise at a slower rate in the three years to 2016. However, this trend is not expected to impede faster commercial carpet price growth during the period. Volatility in input and external demand drivers is projected to be low. Thus, buyers will continue to enjoy stable, albeit increasing, prices. Additionally, although commercial carpet can be customized, there is a wide range of styles, designs and colors available to buyers. As a result, buyers can avoid the high price tags associated with carpet customization services.
