World Plumbing Forecasts (2016 & 2021) for 23 countries

Global demand to rise 6.2% per annum through 2016
Worldwide demand for plumbing fixtures and fittings is expected to increase 6.2 percent per year to almost $80 billion in 2016. Growth will accelerate due to improved market conditions in the key developed markets, especially in the United States where construction spending will register double digit gains. Among the developed nations, the US will have the largest residential plumbing market, as the country experienced the global recession earlier than most other countries and has had more time to recover. Among the developing nations, China will again be the largest market due to its vast population and increasing per capita income. While growth in China will slow significantly compared to the torrid pace of the previous decade, gains will still outpace any other market in the world through 2016.

Asia/Pacific, North America to show best growth
The most rapid growth will occur in the Asia/Pacific region, fueled primarily by China’s increasing industrialization. Demand in China alone is forecast to account for approximately half of the increase in global plumbing demand between 2011 and 2016. In addition, the vast population in this region makes infrastructure and sewage system development a necessity, further raising demand. Other industrializing countries in Asia (such as India and Indonesia) and the Africa/Mideast region will also contribute to global plumbing demand.

North America is forecast to have the second fastest growth in plumbing
demand between 2011 and 2016. This rise will be fueled primarily by a rebound in the US construction market after the 2007-2009 recession. Canada and Mexico are also expected to register healthy gains during this time period.

The slowest growth is anticipated in Western Europe, primarily due to the region’s already well developed economies. Other countries that fall into this category include Japan and Australia. In general, recovery in the construction market lags general economic recovery,
and these countries are still rebounding from the 2008 global financial crisis.

World residential market to outperform nonresidential
The greatest indicator of plumbing product demand is the construction market. In terms of construction, the residential market is anticipated to grow more quickly than the nonresidential market through 2016. Increasing populations and urbanization combined with rising per capita income in industrializing countries will fuel an increase in housing demands, while increasing disposable income and demand for urban housing in industrialized nations will have the same effect. Rising personal income will also increase the market for improvements and repairs, as households can afford to replace outdated or inefficient fixtures and to purchase higher-end models.
