Building up: Growth in the number of housing starts and improving income will revive demand
Lumber & Building Material Stores in the US
Knock on wood
After a period of sharp declines resulting from the failing housing market and declining economy, the industry is set for a modest turnaround. A series of positive changes will affect revenue over the next five years as the number of housing starts increases significantly and homeownership rates improve. While large home-improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe's will threaten profitability, revenue is expected to rise at a moderate rate.
This industry consists of stores and dealers (e.g. lumberyards) that retail building materials such as lumber, hardwood, stones and brick. This industry also supplies cabinets, floor coverings, roofing materials,
electrical and plumbing goods, doors and windows to the construction market. The industry does not include home improvement centers, paint and wallpaper specialty stores, or hardware stores.
