Tile & Marble Stores in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Share Article

Much like many other textile industries, the Tile and Marble Stores industry was hit hard by the decline in residential and nonresidential construction brought on by the recession; however, over the five years to 2014, industry revenue has started to recover, and over the next five years, revenue will continue to grow, though increasing external and internal competition will pose threats to the industry. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has added a report on the Tile and Marble Stores industry to its growing industry report collection.

As operators' sales volumes recover, many have expanded operations and added employees.

The Tile and Marble Stores industry has experienced a significant recovery from the prolonged and substantial downturn in home improvement that occurred amid the housing crisis of the previous decade. Retailers in this industry primarily sell to professional contractors in the residential and nonresidential building markets, as well as to do-it-yourself homeowners. Industry products are purchased during new construction projects or remodeling activities, which had initially declined sharply as a result of lower consumer spending and a severe drop in investment in downstream construction markets during the recession. Since 2009, however, industry revenue has recovered sharply in response to steady growth in the number of housing starts, the value of residential construction and private spending on home improvements over the past five years. Consequently, Tile and Marble Stores industry revenue is expected to grow impressively at an average annual rate of 7.9% over the five-year period to total $11.2 billion in 2014.

According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Nick Petrillo, “As operators experience major recovery in sales volumes, many have expanded operations and added additional employees to their enterprises.” In the five years to 2014, establishments are expected to grow at an average annual rate of 2.0% to 5,057. Similarly, total employment in the industry is expected to increase by an annualized 2.1% rate to 26,479. Since 2010, conditions have slowly improved, with the economy gradually strengthening. Housing starts have substantially rebounded by an annualized 14.4%, private spending on home improvements grew an annualized 2.4% and the value of residential construction grew an annualized 6.0%. As a result, revenue for establishments within the Tile and Marble Stores industry is anticipated to grow an additional 11.0% in 2014, representing a significant improvement from the industry's recessionary struggles.
“Over the five years to 2019, IBISWorld forecasts steady growth for the industry that will fall in line with continued stabilization across housing and construction markets,” says Petrillo. Although the rapid turnaround in housing starts is not expected to continue at the same torrid pace, continued growth in residential and nonresidential construction will help the industry grow.
