2015 Market Research Report on Cemeteries & Crematories Industry
Current Research on the Cemeteries & Crematories IndustryAs more people are trying to cut burial costs and be more environmentally sensitive, cemeteries and crematories are changing their marketing and sustainability practices and expanding to service larger markets.
Private cemetaries and crematories typically provide higher quality of service at higher price to markets that can sustain it. Governments providing cemetary services enter the market to fulfill the need for lower cost services, or services in markets not served by private companies. As the general population experiences a lower mortality rate, reducing demand, as well as financial constraints, less expensive cremation options are replacing more costly funeral and burial costs. Private companies aggressively market pre-sales plans to lower income persons, thus enabling them to pay for burial costs over time before death. Despite criticism and its negative image, pre-sales are increasing and more companies are adding that option to remain competitive.
