Power Boilers Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Share Article

Although power boiler prices have been rising in the past three years, buyers have benefited from the widespread availability of boilers and the rising level of boiler imports, both of which have boosted buyer negotiation leverage. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has added a report on the procurement of Power Boilers to its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

Power boiler prices are forecast to rise in the next three years as the cost of production increases and demand grows

Power boilers have a buyer power score of 3.7 out of 5. This score reflects buyers' moderate negotiating advantages, which are largely due to the product's widespread availability and the price-competitive nature of the power boiler market. "However," according to IBISWorld market research analyst, Jordan Weinstein, "recent demand growth and price fluctuations for key inputs, such as aluminum and steel, have slightly restrained buyer negotiating power."

Buyers benefit from the widespread availability of power boilers and strong competition in the market. "IBISWorld estimates that there are about 1,565 vendors operating in the boiler market in 2014, which is a healthy number of capable suppliers to satisfy most buyers' needs," says Weinstein. Major vendors in the market include Bosch, Bryant, Carrier and Lennox.

As the economy recovered in the three years to 2014, demand for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, including power boilers, mounted, and pushed up prices. Although aluminum and steel input costs fell during the three years to 2014, they are forecast to rise during the next three years. As demand continues to rise, suppliers will be able to pass these increased input costs on to buyers in the form of higher prices for power boilers.

Fortunately for buyers, the rise in demand and input costs for power boilers will not lead to drastic price increases. Anticipated growth in imports will allow buyers to purchase lower-priced machinery from abroad, putting additional pricing pressure on domestic suppliers. As import penetration boosts competition, suppliers that drastically raise prices will risk loseing clients to vendors offering the same products at lower price.
