CLEVELAND, June 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — New analysis from Freedonia Group reveals that strong growth in the construction of new single-family homes during the first part of the forecast period will drive demand for behind-the-wall plumbing products through 2025, because a wide variety of plumbing products are installed during the initial construction of the house:

Homeowners’ spending on kitchen and bathroom renovations will increase 6% per year through 2025

The analysis predicts that spending on household kitchen and bathroom renovation projects will increase by 5% per year to just under $100 billion in 2025, supported by factors such as:

  • owners continue to renovate and expand kitchens to make meal prep easier, such as adding prep sinks or pot fillers
  • homeowners’ efforts to add or remodel bathrooms to facilitate aging-in-place, create multi-generational residences, or simply to improve convenience
  • consumer perception that kitchen and bathroom renovation projects are a more effective way to increase the value of a home compared to other renovation projects

Design trends favoring large kitchens for family gatherings and entertaining guests will drive gains in the larger kitchen renovation segment. Interest in professional-style kitchen equipment that involves the installation of more appliances and accessories will also promote growth.

Bathroom renovation spending will be supported by projects like bathroom additions to improve convenience and functionality and design trends like exposed plumbing and spa-like features.
