Report Overview

The North America plumbing fixtures market size was valued at USD 22.40 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028. An increasing number of construction projects of residential buildings, hotels, restaurants, and airports, coupled with the growing need for modernized bathrooms and kitchens, is driving the market growth. The global COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased the awareness among people regarding self-hygiene and maintaining a clean environment. Moreover, frequently washing hands with soap has been identified as a critical preventive measure by healthcare organizations around the world. This has had a positive impact on the growth of bathroom fixtures and the trend is likely to continue in the months to come. However, this pandemic has taken a toll on the overall supply chain of the industry, owing to strict lockdown conditions and diminishing supply.

Rapid construction in the commercial segment, particularly the hospitality sector, is also driving the product demand.

The hotel industry is a major contributor to the country’s hospitality sector. The booming tourism and real estate industries, accompanied by various infrastructural developments in the hospitality sector, will continue to augment the market growth over the forecast period. Developments in the portable sanitation industry can also drive the market. According to the Portable Sanitation Association International, there are 3.6 million portable restrooms in service across the globe, with the North American region representing 2.0 to 2.2 million portable restrooms in 2019. Any expansion in this industry poses lucrative growth opportunities for the market.

The commercial segment comprises hotels, restaurants, public restrooms, and corporate & educational institutes.

Owing to the continuous growth of the housing market and frequent renewal projects, the demand for various plumbing fixtures is expected to be strong over the forecast period.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline segment accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 81% in 2020 and is projected to witness a steady CAGR over the forecast period.

These channels are hosted by businesses that are engaged in e-commerce as well as manufacturers who have realized the potential of the channel and have thus hosted their shopping websites to better cater to the customers’ needs.
