BCC, Inc.: Kiln Furniture Updated Report
July 22, 2003
According to a soon-to-be-released, updated report from Business Communications Co., Inc., "RGB-273 Kiln Furniture," the total worldwide market for kiln furniture is expected to grow from $186 million in 2002 to $211 million in 2007. The U.S. share in the world market will increase from 22.7 to 24.1%, as the U.S. market grows at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 3.8% through 2007. This modest growth is in part due to the unexpected events occurring in the U.S. since the September 11 terrorist attacks and the recent Iraq war. The kiln furniture market depends largely on the general economy with consumer spending sentiment, and, hence, it is subject to variations with economic movement.
