The North America hearth market comprises countries such as the US, Canada, and Mexico. The US and Canada acquire the majority of the North America hearth market share as there is a constant demand for fireplaces in these countries. This can be mainly attributed to the rise in the deployment of electric hearth systems across residential applications, which is supported by the increase in replacements of gas/fuel-powered hearths with electric and pellet-based hearths. 


The North America hearth market report includes an analysis carried out by identifying and evaluating key players in the market. The presence of a large number of hearth manufacturers, such as HNI Corporation; Wolf Steel Ltd; Empire Comfort Systems, Inc.; Travis Industries, Inc.; Innovative Hearth Products; FPI Fireplace Products International Ltd; Pacific Energy Fireplace Products Ltd.; GHP Group Inc; Glen Dimplex Americas; and Stove Builder International, is one of the major drivers for the North America hearth market. These companies are constantly working on providing reliable solutions to their respective customers to remain competitive in the highly fragmented market.


The report includes growth prospects in light of current North America market trends and driving factors influencing the market growth. The rise in the number of tourism and hospitality sector engagements with tourists traveling to the US or Canada is another major factor supporting the North America hearth market growth in the commercial segment. The majority of the hotels in both countries have installed fireplaces or portable hearths to provide comfort to their respective customers.  


Several factors, including the construction of new residential houses across various cold states such as Washington, California, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Michigan, and Wisconsin, drive the demand for hearths in the US. These states have the majority of the locations with the cold atmosphere where the residents require hearth installed at their houses. Moreover, the increase in energy consumption prices is another major factor pushing consumers to shift from electric-based heating appliances to eco-friendly heating systems. The hearth system allows the production of heat that can be utilized to maintain a warm atmospheric environment inside houses. All these factors are driving the hearth market in the US.


The rise in demand from existing residential houses and commercial buildings across the US is another major factor supporting the installation of hearth systems nationwide. Moreover, the rising awareness for better aesthetics inside the houses is one of the secondary factors driving the adoption of hearth systems. The US also has a wide presence of companies such as IHP Corporate, ACME Stove, Empire Comfort Systems Inc, Hearth & Home Technologies, US Stove Company, The Fireplace Factory, American Panel Hearth Products, Hearth & Home Incorporated, Hearthstopper, and Heatilator.


The stakeholders in the North America hearth market include raw material and component suppliers, hearth manufacturers, distributors, and end users. Raw material suppliers and component suppliers provide products such as stones, marble, granite, slate, cover plates, grates, and screens to hearth system manufacturers. Hearth manufacturers then utilize the raw materials and components to make the final fireplace products, which are further supplied to the distributors or directly to the customers.


Manufacturers of fireplaces/hearths are facing difficulties in efficiently maintaining the supply chain and retaining the smooth flow of transactions within the value chain. This is mainly due to the fluctuations in the sales/shipments of hearth products year-on-year. Further, the government regulations regarding the installation/usage of fireplaces in a few cities of Canada are impacting the demand for gas-based hearth/fireplace products. For instance, according to the Ontario Building Code, customers must obtain a permit to install a fuel-burning fireplace or wood stove in their home in Canada. Further, the shipments of hearth systems have been witnessing fluctuations in terms of yearly growth. For instance, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, in Canada, the shipments of gas hearth appliances witnessed a y-o-y growth of -19%, 5%, 22%, and -24% in the years 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 respectively. Similarly, in the US, the shipments of gas hearth appliances witnessed a y-o-y growth of -7%, 5%, 15%, and -20% in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022, respectively. Such factors have also been impacting the adoption of hearth systems across North America, and hearth appliance vendors have been facing the challenge of retaining their respective customers.
