U.S. cabinet and countertop sales could increase by some 7.0% during 2022. This is down from a 2021 gain of 16.3%, as demand recovered from the 2020 pandemic-induced recession. Sales gains are weakening as the Federal Reserve increases interest rates to fight inflationary trends moving through the economy. Mortgage rates have already topped 5.0% and based on current trends could end the year above 6.0%. Rising interest rates have already caused home sales and remodelling spending to turn sluggish. 

Dollar sales, however, have received a boost from rising prices as manufacturers pass through rising material, labor, and transportation costs. Rising prices, however, is reducing unit demand. Based on analysis, the author estimates stock and custom products could perform the best. Rising costs are causing middle- and lower-income households to trade down to lower priced cabinets and countertops, while demand for higher-end products could remain strong since higher income households are less likely to be affected by the inflation. 

Mortgage interest rates are projected to increase again in 2023, making for another challenging year. Demand could begin to stabilize in 2024 as interest rates moderate and households regain confidence to purchase a new home and undertake remodeling projects. Growth, however, could drop to a 5.2% compound annual growth rate between 2022 and 2027 due to the sluggishness over the next few years. Cabinet sales could climb 4.7% annually and countertop material sales 5.9% per year over this period.


The publisher has uncovered these trends in our in-depth report on the U.S. cabinet and countertop industry.
