A National Ready Mix Concrete Association article states:
“Decorative concrete is one of the fastest growing value-added concrete types today, both in sheer cubic yards of growth and in year-over-year percent growth. That is not a small statement to make.
With retailers like Wal-Mart, Kroger, Chili’s and the like using integral colored concrete, along with textures, stains, grinding and stamps available today, to replicate almost any other finish, the market for color in concrete will continue to grow.”
Concrete is used more than any other manmade material in the world, about 10 billion tons are produced every year and it is the 2nd most consumed substance in the world - behind water. Decorative concrete is the fastest growing segment of the concrete industry. One industry source report has the decorative concrete market size projected to grow from USD 9.26 Billion in 2017 to almost USD 13 Billion by 2022.
Most of our competition comes from “Mom & Pop” store owners who were previously installers. This is good, as it demonstrates that those on the front lines saw the need in of a growing business market. This also means that there could easily be a lack of a retailing skill set and through trial and error they have had to develop their own marketing, supplier relationships, and business practices. All which ConDecor Superstore has developed for you.
There are some “Big Box” retailers like Home Depot and Lowes which offer a limited selection of some of the same products we offer. However, finding an employee at either that has knowledge of decorative products would be a challenge. Big Box employees often refer customers to our company, ConDecor Superstore, as they realize their product knowledge limitations.
I would encourage you to drop in to the Big Box near you and see the limited products as well as the lack of knowledge available in these stores.
