FMI inaugural report examines building products industry

By HBSDealer Staff - 08/19/2019
FMI Corporation, a provider of consulting and investment banking services to the “Built Environment,” has released its inaugural Building Products Market Update.

The publication explores ways for manufacturers and distributors to position their company for growth in the building products industry, despite a potential market slowdown. Looking to the future, there are four trends identified that could have an impact on prices and the broader industry.

Paul Giovannoni, managing director for FMI Consulting’s Building Products sector, said, “Those that do think ahead will not only be able to take advantage of the downturn, but also be building resilient companies that can withstand a countless variety of market conditions. By taking the three steps outlined in this article—and even if the slowdown doesn’t surface for several years—organizations can effectively prepare for whatever the future brings.”

The report specifically focuses on several major product categories: windows and doors, insulation, HVAC, plumbing and roofing systems and includes:

  • Total Construction Spending Put in Place Forecast Growth by Construction Segment and Metropolitan Area

  • Total Construction Put in Place Estimated for the U.S.

  • Nonresidential Buildings Materials Forecast and Macro Trends

  • Residential Buildings Materials Forecast and Macro Trends

  • Estimated Material Value Summary Tables
