Research and Markets: 2012 Report on the $160 Billion US Plumbing & HVAC Contractors Industry

DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 14, 2012Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vb7tcz/plumbing_and_hvac) has announced the addition of the "Plumbing & HVAC Contractors" report to their offering.

The US plumbing and HVAC contractors industry includes about 98,000 firms with combined annual revenue of about $160 billion. Major companies include Comfort Systems USA, Dyn Specialty Contracting (a subsidiary of EMCOR Group), Rescue Rooter (owned by American Residential Services), and TDIndustries.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

Demand for services depends partly on new residential and commercial construction. Demand for maintenance and repair work on existing structures is also substantial. Profitability depends on the volume of work a company can acquire, since most costs are fixed. Larger companies may have a competitive advantage in winning projects that require both design work and installation and in serving businesses with facilities in multiple markets. Small companies can compete by specializing in individual markets and by focusing on customer service.

PRODUCTS, OPERATIONS & TECHNOLOGY

HVAC contractors install and service furnaces, air conditioning (AC) units, and refrigeration systems, and the associated ductwork, pumps, and control units in residential and commercial buildings. Some shops fabricate their own sheet-metal ductwork. Technicians are trained on installation and repair but often specialize in one or the other.

Plumbing contractors install bathroom and kitchen fixtures and the associated pipes in residential or commercial buildings, and may also install gas appliances and pipework.
