Swimming Pool 2021 Industry Trends
In 2021, the swimming pool industry will be booming. How do we know this? In 2020 alone, it is estimated that 2.1 million Americans own a swimming pool. According to a recent study during the pandemic, pool sales are up, and not just pool equipment sales and cleaning/maintenance services. New pool builds are at a record high compared to the past decade.
Are you interested in learning the latest information? There are many factors that have contributed to these industry trends. From external factors at a macro scale to intrinsic industry progression, there is a lot of dive into - no pun intended. To gain valuable insight into the future of the pool industry, read more.
The first trend is the effect of climate change. As a result of global warming, there are more heatwaves and less snowfall in some regions which can lead to increased water use for cooling purposes. As summer approaches in the sunshine state - it feels like it's going to be a hot one.
Increased temperatures outside paired with a nationwide chlorine shortage could spell out trouble for the integrity of your pool’s water this summer. That is why regular maintenance of your pool is so important. To read more about chlorine alternatives, check out one of our other blogs HERE.
Another factor is population growth. As people migrate from other countries with colder climate areas like Canada to the US where pools are used for recreation and not just survival, it's no surprise that these new warm weather inhabitants want to take advantage of their change of scenery. Most Florida residents have become familiar with snowbirds that come from the north to escape the frigid temperatures that the winter season brings.
People from the north don’t have the luxury of having access to swimming pools year-round unless the pool is indoors. Increased demand for new pools and a limited supply of builders/materials is the underlying reason that a lot of new pool projects aren’t forecasted to be completed until 2022. The pandemic put a major strain on the materials and manufacturing supply chains which is another possibility for backlogged projects.
Advancements in Technology
The third factor is technology. Advancements in engineering have led to high-quality materials and low prices, while advances in solar power generation have made it easier than ever before to provide clean energy for heating pools without harming the environment at all! Lower price points mean an increase in demand in almost every situation/industry - this is no different for the pool industry. This isn’t great news if you are interested in owning/maintaining a pool and are strapped for cash. However, as someone who is currently a pool owner, or considering becoming one, you have more options than ever before.
These three economic trends point towards a future where owning a pool in your backyard becomes the new norm. Sadly, we are not pool builders or contractors.
