Demand for Aluminum Gutters and Downspouts to Reach $4 Billion in 2022

CLEVELAND, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand in value terms for aluminum gutters and downspouts is projected to increase 3.4% annually to $4.0 billion in 2022, driven by ongoing growth in the large residential improvement and repair market. Growth will also be supported in the short term by price increases implemented in response to the Trump administration's aluminum tariffs. These and other trends are presented in Gutters & Downspouts in the US, 2nd Edition, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

In linear feet, demand for aluminum gutter and downspout products is projected to increase 1.6% per year to 1.6 billion in 2022. Aluminum is the material most used for gutter systems, resulting in a largely mature market. Additionally, aluminum gutter guards will continue to face competition from plastic and steel varieties, resulting in only moderate gains in an otherwise expanding segment.

According to Freedonia Group analyst Ellen Kriz, "Demand for the gutters and downspouts market overall is expected to increase 3.2% per year to $6.0 billion in 2022." Long-term value growth will be supported by the promotion of value-added products and accessories – like rainwater harvesting equipment, gutter guards, and decorative features such as rain chains – in an effort to combat market maturity.
