At HIRI event, a mid-single-digit story of growth
During the Home Improvement Research Institute Spring Conference in Arlington, Va., a presentation from IHS Global Insight presented a relatively positive forecast for the home improvement products market.
Both 2012 and 2013 should be better than 2011, according to the forecast.
The annual change of sales (in nominal dollars) for 2012 is forecast at 5.0% and 4.6% for 2013. In the Consumer market, the growth rates are 5.4% for 2012 and 4.6% for 2013.
The Professional market, which grew a mere 2.9% in 2011, is forecast to grow 4.0% in 2012 and 4.7% in 2013.
Looking further into 2014, the growth rate of the sales of home improvement products is expected to gradually accelerate, according to James Gillula, managing director of consulting services for IHS Global Insight.

Heart-shaped sprinklers offer eco benefits
Contech is promoting the ecological benefits of its heart-shaped Rainforest Ecological Sprinklers, designed to lower water consumption.
The heart-shaped head of the sprinkler breaks up water droplets to improve delivery to the root zone and to prevent wasted water, according to the company.
“Because they can’t clog, Rainforest Sprinklers are ideal for hard water areas and for low-pressure systems like wells,” said Mark Grambart, president and CEO of Contech Enterprises, the manufacturer of Raniforest Ecological Sprinklers.
The sprinklers operate at low pressures (20 to 80 psi).
The sprinklers, which are built with only one moving part, cover an area up to 2,000 square feet, and can be used in sequence to expand their range.
