FIRST LOOK ON FURNITURE AND CABINET HARDWARE

Report Number HT 070

Sales of furniture and cabinet hardware have been rebounding along with the recovery in the U.S. housing market. The recovery has been driven by rising demand for kitchen cabinet and vanity hardware as builders and consumers increased purchases as new and existing home sales rebounded. The increase in existing home sales has stimulated consumer purchases. Demand from household furniture manufacturers is also beginning to recover. On the other hand, sales to commercial furniture manufactures have remained sluggish.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date First Look on Furniture and Cabinet Hardware. This First Look provides data on metal versus plastic product sales, sales by product type, price trends, exports and imports, and factors driving demand. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.

The content shows the significant data included in this First Look. Look it over, fill out the order coupon and receive your Catalina First Look promptly. You will find it a valuable planning tool.
