It was the July holiday and the pool motor at a local country club went on the fritz with the potential of closing down the pool on the busiest day of the year! The existing motor was wired for 230V 60HZ and needed to be a direct drop-in replacement of the pump motor that had just expired. The club manager called a local repair shop for help!

Segment Analysis

Residential Pool

60.0% of swimming pool construction is for new homes. Therefore, as conditions in residential construction rebounded, demand for new swimming pools also grew, albeit modestly.  
Over the five years to 2022, the industry is expected to struggle to make a splash despite expected growth in residential construction. One reason for this mismatch is the industry’s very success up to the Great Recession. According to estimates from PKdata, the number of households most likely to install a pool is between 750,000 and 3.4 million, which is far below the 5.1 million homes that currently have in-ground pools. This suggests that the rapid buildup of pools during the housing bubble has saturated demand, leaving future growth increasingly difficult.

Commercial Pool

Demand for new swimming pools in commercial settings is expected to increase during the period, which will partially offset weak revenue growth residential pools.

Hot Tubs & Spas

Over the next five years, the hot tub manufacturing industry is projected to grow moderately. Since hot tubs and spas are luxury goods, consumer demand products is highly dependent on income growth and consumer confidence.
