Ready to Start a Plumbing Business?

The fastest-growing plumbing franchise in the nation is seeking entrepreneurs to invest in a dynamic, people-driven plumbing business

How Big is the Demand for Plumbing?

When it comes to business opportunities in the home services space, plumbing should be at the top of the list. The $113 billion plumbing industry is recession-resistant, which means owning a plumbing business will thrive no matter the state of the economy. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the plumbing industry will see an average of 14 percent job growth over the next 10 years. That’s a much faster growth rate compared to most industries at only five percent. Additionally, entrepreneurs can capitalize on the plumbing shortage further, as 75 percent of the current tradespeople are expected to retire in the next 10 years, notes the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

Another contributing factor to the plumbing industry’s growth is a rise in new construction and building maintenance and repair, which is expected to propel the demand for plumbers. This demand is poised to increase the employment of plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters 14% by 2028, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

Ultimately, entrepreneurs looking to invest in a viable business opportunity should look no further than the plumbing industry. Not only has plumbing been deemed an essential service, but the industry is poised to continue growing, according to IBISWorld.
