Resting place: Demographic trends benefit funeral homes, but cremations will hamper growth

Funeral Homes in the US

Falling per capita income during the recession and a rising number of inexpensive cremations have hampered industry revenue. Money-strapped families turned to discount retailers and manufacturers to purchase caskets, further depressing revenue for funeral home operators. Nevertheless, the industry's revenue is projected to improve slightly during the next five years. As the population ages, the number of deaths in the United States is anticipated to increase. However, continued competition from discount retailers and the ease of online ordering from casket manufacturers, as well as a rise in inexpensive cremations, are expected to curtail prices for funeral merchandise through 2020.

This industry includes companies that conduct funerals and prepare the deceased for burial or interment. Industry establishments organize wakes, transport the dead and sell caskets and related merchandise. This industry includes funeral homes combined with crematories; however, establishments that primarily conduct cremation are excluded from this industry and are included in the Cemetery Services industry (IBISWorld report 81222).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
