Sector: Plumbing

Market Overview: U.S. demand for plumbing products is ris­ing and expected to grow in the coming years as new construction, retrofitting and remodeling for energy and water efficiency grows.

However, of all the energy efficiency sectors, water sav­ing products are the most likely to be imported.  Of the more than 200 water product man­ufacturers researched for this project, about 75% of them are manufacturing overseas and importing their products to the U.S.  In fact, the International Trade Administration states that exports in this market grew only 1.5% between 2010 and 2013. This number accounts for both finished products like toilets, faucets and showerheads and unfinished plumbing products like piping.

It is common in this market for U.S. owned companies to oper­ate their own manufacturing facilities overseas or multiple companies will contract with the same overseas manufacturer to produce their brands.   Because the U.S. is one of only three countries not using the met­ric system, exporting within the rough materials markets is difficult. Water conservation standard differences among other countries compared to the U.S. also impact our export possibilities.

The remaining 25% of plumbing product manufacturers do so domestically and include some of the largest, best known Original Equipment Manufacturer’s in the U.S.  Additionally, because of shipping costs and rising wages in countries like China, toilet manufacturing in the U.S. has seen a turnaround recently with both U.S. and foreign owned com­panies producing toilets on U.S. soil.  Currently there are seven U.S. plants manu­facturing toilets.
