If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve already begun to consider the option of an awning for your home.

And as you’ve scoured the internet for information and answers regarding expectations, cost benefits, and market averages, you might find that some things are simply… harder to find than others.

Namely, the overall time period from awning order to installation may still be out of reach. But don’t worry — that’s why we’re here to help:

A state-of-the-art Sunesta awning

Dealer Demand & the Awning Industry

According to IBIS World, “the market size of the Tent, Awning & Canvas Manufacturing industry in the US increased faster than the economy overall” over the past five years — and demand is only expected to increase from here.

In fact, “the global awning market was valued at $6,765.8 million in 2017 and is projected to reach $11,042.7 million in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 6.2%,” as reported by Allied Market Research.

And as consumer desire for awnings increases, suppliers will need to work faster to keep up with the demand.

But in an age of instant Amazon purchases and immediate gratification, what specifically, might customers be able to expect?

Keeping Eyes on the Clock of Competitors

On average, most awning suppliers take upward of several weeks to manufacture a single awning, particularly if they are custom-made to the consumer’s home. And that’s before shipping even comes into the picture.

In other words, some individuals may wait well over a month to actually see their awning installed.

Thus, we wanted to take a look at other suppliers in our market and record just how long they take. Here’s what we found:

  • Competitor A: Approximately four weeks
  • Competitor B: Approximately four weeks
  • Competitor C: Approximately three weeks

Consequently, we can see that, even in the best case scenario, a customer might need to wait two weeks for production and — depending on where the awning is sent to — another two weeks for shipping.
