The United States: Finished-Goods Imports Are Still Growing (Shelby Township, MI)

The United States has been traditionally considered an outlet market, especially for exports of finished goods. While this is still true, the American market is now quite different from what it was. It has undergone a fundamental transformation, becoming the market par excellence for “small-scale” works after long being one for “large-scale”.

It is a well-known fact that the United States stone market is of basic importance worldwide.

With an official population count of 215 million, the United States is the fourth largest country in the world in size, extending over an area of 9,363,276 square miles (about 28 times the size of Italy). Given the vastness of this territory and the solidity of the American economy, the building sector continues to be extremely important and has a fundamental influence on the development of the international ornamental stone trade. In addition to its territorial and economic aspects, the U.S. market has other special features, such as greatly facilitated credit access and a “consumerist” mentality that often spurs purchases beyond real needs. In virtue of these factors the United States is traditionally considered an outlet market, especially for finished-goods exports. In the 90′s the American market changed a great deal from the previous two decades, undergoing a “genetic” mutation to become primarily a market for small private works, after years of expansion thanks to large ones.

Where stone extraction is concerned, in 1999 the United States produced 1,500,000 tons of marble, granite and ornamental stones. Raw production reached its peak in 1990 with 1,700,000 tons, followed by a 1993-1994 drop to 1,350,000 and then fairly constant output until 1998 when it climbed back to 1,450,000 tons.

In light of its internal production, the United States is one of the eleven countries – with Italy, China, Spain, Greece, Brazil, India, France, Portugal, South Korea and Turkey – whose output is over the million-ton mark, and together they account for about 75% of total world production.
