From 2012-2017, there was a high sales gain on gutter products due to increased re-roofing activity. These sales are predicted to reach as high as $6 billion by 2020.

The Gutter Market Is Projected to Reach $6 Billion by 2020

In this post, your provider of the best gutter guards, Gutter HelmetĀ® Systems of Alabama, discusses the reasons behind this forecast.

Linear Feet Growth

The projected growth in gutter products sales is mainly affected by increasing construction activity. However, linear feet growth is predicted to slow because of the decrease in residential improvement and repair activity. Improved economic conditions and severe weather in 2016 and 2017 raised the demand for re-roofing projects, which often include gutter replacement.

To encourage sales, contractors can innovate their products, offer more colors and styles, and promote value-added products like gutter guards and rain harvesting equipment.

Gutter and Downspout Market

Contractors that expand their product lines or innovate more sustainable products are more likely to experience growth opportunities. Such products include novel materials, coatings and gutter styles like aluminum half-round gutters that have the elegant appearance of copper or zinc. Galvalume steel can also be used instead of galvanized steel in traditional style homes. Gutter guards and rain harvesting equipment can increase sales on gutter installations.

Through 2020, the South is projected to remain the fastest-growing area in the nation. Gutter guard sales will be more significant in the West as this region is prone to wildfires, and the best gutter guards may help prevent the spread of fire. The Northeast and Midwest will experience slower gains because of the decline in construction activity.
