Specialists Business Information has analyzed the growth potential and bottom-line performance of the $2.2 billion window shade, blinds, and drapery hardware market. Drapery hardware sales have experienced double-digit increases since 1992, due to the turnaround in U.S. curtain and draperies demand. On the other hand, window shade and blinds shipments turned sluggish due to changing consumer window coverings preferences. SBI has uncovered these and other developments by analyzing U.S. shipments, imports, end-use markets, distribution channels, foreign market potential, and the cost structure of U.S. plants. In addition, the study furnishes data on consumer demographics, residential construction activity and remodeling spending, and much more.
