Ashes to ashes: Rising demand for cremation services will subdue revenue growth



Abstract

Funeral Homes in the US

Demand for Funeral Homes industry services is relatively steady because most Americans pass through a funeral home upon their death, which is inevitable. However, changing funeral preferences in recent years have led more families away from burial toward lower-cost cremation services, reducing the industry revenue generated per client. In addition, the emergence of alternative sales channels for funereal products retailed by this industry, including e-commerce, has heightened competition. Over the next five years, the industry is anticipated to stagnate. However, a slight expected uptick in the US death rate will bode well for the industry. As the baby boomer generation ages and seniors expand significantly as a component of the population, growth in the annual number of US deaths will accelerate.


This industry includes companies that conduct funerals and prepare the deceased for burial or interment. Industry establishments organize wakes, transport the dead and sell caskets and related merchandise. This industry includes funeral homes combined with crematories; however, establishments that primarily conduct cremation are excluded from this industry and are included in the Cemetery Services industry (IBISWorld report 81222).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
