Report: Nonwoven cartridge market for pools and spas

INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has published a new report called ‘Nonwoven Cartridge Market for Pools and Spas.' The new INDA Segment Analysis focuses on a niche market within the overall Liquid Filtration business.

Report summary

After enduring challenging times due to the weak U.S. economy and the even slower home construction and home improvement business, the North American cartridge filter market in 2011 totalled approximately $293 million at retail, while at the producer's level sales for these products is estimated at $190 million.

These findings and more are contained in a recently released Segment Analysis of the Nonwoven Cartridge Market for Swimming Pools and Spas. The market-specific report is part of an ongoing series of in-depth research projects focusing on vital segments of the business of filtration being published by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry. These Segment Analysis reports will be compiled into an extensive Liquid Filtration INDA publication at a later date.

"The cartridge market for swimming pools and spas has gone through hard times over the past few years as the housing industry slumped and consumers have found it increasingly difficult to obtain financing to install swimming pools and spas," says INDA President Rory Holmes, who points out that pool and spa installation volume has dropped precipitously for several years.

In fact, according to the INDA report, installations, which had annual volume in the 380,000 to 395,000 range in 2003-04, bottomed out at 184,000 units in 2008, with slow growth continuing since that time. Spas were in a similar position, with volume dropping during the same period from 417,000 units to 175,000 units.

However, according to the INDA report, over the next five years the pool and spa construction industry will continue to build new pools and spas at a modest but slightly accelerated pace of 3-4% per year.

INDA is a leading global association for the nonwoven fabrics industry.  Since 1968 it has provided a variety of industry focused networking events to help members increase sales and market share.
