According to this report, demand for builders' and cabinet hardware generally follows the trends in the cabinet, door and window market and the overall construction industry, encompassing new construction as well as repair and improvement markets. With the end-users' appetite for aesthetically rich architectural hardware for windows and doors burgeoning, hardware manufacturers are continuously on lookout for new materials, shapes, styles and designs to satisfy their variety-seeking clientele.
With a history of over two centuries, the market for builders' and cabinet hardware is characterized by intense competition, single digit sales growth and aging product life cycles. Nevertheless, the industry is a typical example of a ‘traditional industry', with most of the builders' hardware categories such as locks still not significantly affected by the wave of technological developments.
The United States represents the most significant and well developed worldwide market for Builders and Cabinet Hardware. Holding a lion's share in the total US Builders' and Cabinet hardware market, the construction contractors are the most dominant end-user class, followed by Door & Window manufacturers. The growing popularity of Do-It-Yourself- (DIY) and Buy-It-Yourself concepts is expected to transform the households into a potential end-user for builders' and cabinet hardware.
Demand for locks is expected to grow, primarily due to revival in the home construction sector in the US, with electromechanical locks likely to surge at a comparatively faster rate than the traditionally used locks. Lock makers in China and Hong Kong are experimenting with new materials such as porcelain and special woods such as pine to develop innovative locking devices for changing needs.
Cabinet Hardware is emerging as a highly lucrative market, with major demand emanating from the Do-it-Yourselfers (DIYs). With newer styles and designs becoming the order of the day, the retailers are stocking up their outlets with the latest decorative hardware to match up to the changing customer preferences.
