Report Number HT 080

The U.S. ladder market has benefited from double-digit increases in housing starts since 2012 and sharper gains in nonresidential construction spending since 2014. Currently, sales are receiving a boost from stronger gains in homeowner purchases. There has also been a significant shift to fiberglass ladders over the past two decades since they are price competitive. Manufacturers and marketers have shifted sourcing to Mexico and China to keep a competitive edge.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Ladders. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases and retail sales, factors driving demand, and the competitive environment.
