Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The recovery of the commercial buildings construction market also aided revenue growth for industry contractors
  • Private nonresidential construction returned to growth alongside residential construction
  • Industry growth will mainly be attributed to increased activity in the residential market, which is slowing
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    As the residential construction sector drastically declined during the recession, the Tile Installers industry struggled to maintain demand. Homeowners with low disposable incomes opted for do-it-yourself projects, hindering demand. As disposable income increases over the next five years, consumers will be more willing to spend on tile installers and their high-quality product options.

    Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    Tile installation is a part of the flooring process, which is one of the integral finishing steps in building construction. The Tile Installers industry comprises contractors that set and install ceramic, interior stone (e.g. granite, slate and marble) and mosaic tiles, in addition to terrazzo, a flooring material made of marble particles and cement. Industry contractors mainly compete with one another for wall and floor tiling projects but also compete with other contractors (e.g. carpets, hardwood flooring, vinyl and other alternative flooring installers) for a share of the floor finishing market. Further, industry contractors also compete with property owners who wish to perform their own installations.
