What started in 1981 as a cooperative between six of the largest home improvement manufacturers and retailers to provide investor education has evolved into the leading market research organization for over one-hundred of the biggest names within the home improvement industry.
Our goal has always been to provide companies of all sizes with actionable resources ranging from raw data to digestible executive summaries to shape their business decisions.
HIRI functions like a co-op, conducting $1 million worth of research and sharing the costs among members. This way, every member gets $1 million worth of value for an order of magnitude less. Plus, you get access to all research HIRI has ever done, not just the current year’s research (which will include over 50 reports in 2021 alone).
HIRI contains some of the biggest names in the industry (such as Home Depot, Lowes, 3M, Ace Hardware, Kohler, and more). Being a member allows you to connect with these companies on a common subject. Plus, you get access to the same information being used by your competitors, partners, and retailers.
HIRI’s research is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online. You can log in and pull data at a moment’s notice, whether you need it for a presentation, line review, internal meeting or product discussion. You never have to wait.
HIRI has a full-time staff dedicated to supporting our members. We are here to help you locate specific research topics or data. And if you want to segment a specific portion of an existing report, we can talk to you about that, too.
Every year, HIRI conducts an annual Industry Insights Summit that brings together some of the brightest minds and leading organizations in the Home Improvement industry. An educational event, speakers present additional insights on home improvement products/projects, along with channel and market dynamics and industry insights.
HIRI members receive $1 Million of proprietary research, with over 50 reports being delivered in 2021 alone. Studies are geared both to meet the individual needs of members and to gauge market trends relevant to our members as a whole.
