Sign Installation Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated

Share Article

Prices for sign installation services have been rising since 2011 due to demand growth stemming from the economic recovery, which has increased corporate profit and total advertising expenditure. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the procurement of Sign Installation in its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

The average price for sign installation is expected to continue rising in the three years to 2017 as demand continues to increase.

Sign installation services have a buyer power score of 3.6 out of 5. This score reflects a buyer's moderate ability to negotiate lower pricing due to the large number of suppliers, low switching costs and the price-competitive nature of the sign installation market. “IBISWorld estimates that there are over 4,000 vendors, which provides buyers with a substantial number of suppliers to choose from, although recent demand growth has marginally reduced buyer negotiating power,” says IBISWorld procurement analyst Kiera Outlaw.

In the three years to 2014, the average price of sign installation services has been increasing due to a rise in demand stemming from the economic recovery. Rising consumer spending has ignited healthy growth in corporate profit levels, the number of businesses in the United States and total advertising expenditure. Growth in these demand factors has consequently boosted demand for sign installation services. “Suppliers are also expected to experience higher costs for key inputs, such as wages and purchases, over three years to 2017,” adds Outlaw. “As a result, sign installation prices will increase slightly as suppliers pass on a portion of these costs to buyers.”

Fortunately for buyers, the rise in supplier wage and purchase expenses, and increasing demand for sign installation over the next three years will not lead to significant price increases in the next three years. Due to the high competition in the market, suppliers face strong pricing pressure; suppliers that drastically raise prices will lose business to vendors offering the same standardized service at a lower price.

Buyers benefit from the low market share concentration and high competition among suppliers. The large number of suppliers and low switching costs strengthen competition. In addition, because there is a low degree of specialization, buyers benefit from having a wide variety of suppliers capable of satisfying specific buyer requirements. These favorable conditions are expected to remain unchanged over the next three years. For more information, visit IBISWorld’s Sign Installation procurement category market research report page.
