The Fastest Growing Retail Category

Overall, the recession-resistant home improvement industry is a $394 billion industry, projected to increase to $465.5 billion by 2023. The booming industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4-5%, in the coming years. According to Forbes, home improvement is the fastest-growing retail category because of three factors: total homeowner equity has nearly doubled in the last five years, the average age of current homes in the U.S. is 20+ years old, and the millennial demographic is entering the housing market. As the industry continues to grow, PatchMaster will also continue to grow and is well-positioned to become a household name for drywall repair due to their efficient and affordable process.

A Brand Worth Investing In
