Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Waterproofing coatings have a buyer power score of 3.0 out of 5. This score reflects better negotiating conditions for buyers. IBISWorld business research analyst Pierre Dessertenne says, “Buyer power has been decreasing during the past three years but is expected to increase in the future as competition among suppliers continues to intensify.” Major vendors in the market include Henkel, Sherwin Williams and 3M Company.
Competition among suppliers, especially manufacturers, is expected to continue to strengthen buyer power. “Strong marketing efforts by manufacturers combined with product and financial incentives are expected to drive up sales over the next three years and increase buyer power,” says Dessertenne. Competition among manufacturers will benefit distributors as well as their buyers due to increased sales and price competition. Furthermore, the large quantity of vendors ensures buyers a wide selection of waterproofing coatings. Buyer power is also strengthened by low switching costs and short lead times, allowing buyers to fully take advantage of the competitiveness of the market.
Over the next three years, demand for waterproofing coatings is expected to increase. Construction activity is expected to continue rising as it has in the past three years, stimulating demand for waterproofing coatings. In addition, as a result of a growing economy, private spending on home improvement and the number of businesses are expected to increase, which will boost demand for waterproofing coatings. Production costs for waterproofing coatings have been steadily increasing along with the price of key inputs during the past three years, which has been reflected in constant price increases. The recent decrease in fossil fuel prices (a significant key input) is expected to continue as some oil producers increase production, lowering the market price for crude oil, and therefore diminish the rate at which prices have been increasing.
Although prices are forecast to increase, the rate of growth is expected to remain low and exhibit low volatility, allowing for more flexibility in the purchase of waterproofing coatings and short-term purchase decisions.
