The author summarizes this wealth of information to clearly point to the pertinent industry trends.

Scope And Methodology

This Market Profile on Toilets and Toilet Seats is a guide to the sales and profit-oriented opportunities in this market. This comprehensive database covers U.S. shipments, imports, end-use markets, factors affecting domestic demand, distribution and demographics, exports, the cost structure of U.S. toilet plants, and the competitive environment.

The U.S. toilet supply is calculated from U.S. Department of Commerce statistics by collecting data on domestic plant shipments and adding imports (Section 1). The U.S. supply is calculated on a dollar and unit basis. Separate calculations were made for water closet bowls, flush tanks, and bidets and urinals. From this data, Catalina calculated the market for one-piece and two-piece toilets and average selling prices. Findings are provided in the Executive Summary in order to develop strategies to outperform the industry averages.

Section 2 analyzes the market’s source of supply, whether U.S.- or foreign-based. U.S. shipments are compiled from Department of Commerce surveys. Shipments are for all domestic manufacturers, whether plants are owned by U.S.- or foreign-based companies, and whether or not plants specialize (50.0% or more of total facility revenues) in toilets, bidets, and urinals. U.S. import data is derived from U.S. Customs records. Import data is segmented by country of origin and product.

Section 3 analyzes the U.S. toilet seat market. Shipments, exports, and imports were compiled to calculate U.S. sales. Shipments are defined the same as toilets in the above paragraph. The shipments data, however, was classified as wood toilet seats, including molded type. There was no separate category for plastic toilet seats. Catalina assumes that plastic seats are included in this data since government data included plastic toilet seats in this category in the 1960s. The export and import data was classified as plastic toilet seats. Again, Catalina assumes that the international trade data also included wood toilet seats, especially molded types. Molded types dominate industry sales.

Catalina correlated these trends with factors affecting domestic toilet and toilet seat demand in order to estimate the data provided in the previous sections (Section 5). This section analyzes data on U.S. residential and nonresidential construction activity, residential remodeling markets, and other factors affecting U.S. demand.

Purchases by end-use market are analyzed in Section 4. The new home market data was based on construction of new family homes, multi-unit housing units, and manufactured homes, and the number of total bathrooms included in each. The residential remodeling and replacement market was calculated based on homeowner spending on bathroom remodeling projects. A survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics provides data on household spending on plumbing equipment and repair services by demographic characteristic. Spending is segmented by income, age, size of household, and region. Additional data analyzes the number of homeowner bathroom jobs and where homeowners purchase their plumbing fixtures and supplies, including kitchen and bath showrooms, home centers, hardware stores, and other retailers. Tables also provide data on U.S. exports.

Catalina supplies data on the cost structure and profitability of U.S. plants specializing in the manufacture and sales of vitreous plumbing fixture plants (Section 6). Some 80.0% of total plant revenues were toilets, bidets, and urinals. U.S. Department of Commerce data covering these plants and imports are supplemented with individual company information in order to calculate top company market shares and compile recent company developments.

Action oriented executives are urged to use this comprehensive statistical database and competitor information to uncover growing product lines, end-use markets, distribution and profitable operating strategies. Executives are urged to compute their own company’s market share and compare their company’s operating ratios to the industry averages as part of this process.
