Market Overview:

The global funeral homes market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for funeral services due to the growing population of senior citizens and an increase in the number of deaths due to accidents and other causes. In addition, rising awareness about pre-need funeral services is also contributing towards the growth of this market. However, stringent government regulations and lack of awareness about pre-need funeral services are some factors that are restraining the growth of this market. The global funeral homes market can be segmented on the basis of type into at-need and pre-need funerals. The at-need funerals segment is expected to account for a major share in terms of revenue in 2018 owing to its high demand across regions. However, with increasing awareness about pre-need funerals, this segment is projected to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period from 2018to 2030 as more people shift towards prepaid arrangements for their final rites ceremonies . On basis application , adults accounted for majority share in 2017and it will continue its dominance over next few years as well .

Global Funeral Homes Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A funeral home is a business that provides services related to the death of a person. These services may include preparing the body for burial or cremation, providing funeral arrangements, and burying or cremating the body. Funeral homes are often owned and operated by funeral directors, who are licensed professionals.


At-Need is a service that allows families to prearrange the purchase of caskets, urns and other accessories for immediate use at the time of death. The service has been around for decades but has gained popularity in recent years due to an increase in life expectancy and rising health awareness among consumers.


Pre-need service is a type of insurance plan that allows the family or friends of the deceased to purchase burial or funeral services before death. The main objective of pre-need service is to avoid paying high prices at the time of death for final expenses. Pre-Need Funeral Services are also known as Prepaid funerals, Advance funeral arrangements, or Condolence payment.

Application Insights:

The adults application segment held the largest share of over 70.0% in 2017. The increasing number of aging population across the world is one of the major factors driving this segment. For instance, as per U.S Census Bureau, there are currently about 1 billion people aged 65 years and above globally which is expected to double by 2050 thus creating huge potential for industry growth over the coming years (Ref).

The children application segment is expected to witness significant growth owing to rising awareness regarding pre-need planning among parents and guardians who have kids going through various developmental stages from infant care till they reach school age group (Pre-KG to KG). This also includes preparation for sibling's funeral when a kid loses his/her sibling or gets admitted in hospital due to some illness or accident etc., which needs immediate attention & care hence will lead them towards Funeral Homes that offer such services at reasonable costs along with high level customer service standards (Ref).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing disposable income, growing population, and changing funerary customs & traditions. For instance, according to a survey conducted by The China Association of Death Information (CADII), in 2015 around 590 million people died in China out of which only 36% deaths were reported within 24 hours. In addition, CADII also stated that around 150 thousand premature deaths were recorded every year due to air pollution which was directly influencing on mortality rate thus resulting into an increase in demand for funeral homes across the country.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about funeral services and their benefits: There is a growing awareness among people about the need for funeral services and the benefits they offer. This is driving demand for funeral homes, as more people are opting for these services to commemorate the life of their loved ones.
  • Rising popularity of cremation: The trend of cremation is gaining increasing acceptance worldwide, especially in developed countries. This is benefiting the funeral home market as more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial ceremonies.
  • Growing preference for personalized funerals: There is a growing trend among consumers towards personalizing funerals according to the wishes of the deceased person or their family members. This is providing opportunities for growth in the funeral home market as consumers are increasingly willing to pay extra for customized services and products related to funerals.
