The casket business in the United States is a rather large market, with annual sales reaching 1.2 billion per year. In early America there were really not full time casket makers. Caskets were made on the side by furniture and cabinet makers as needed. It was not until the American Civil War that caskets began to be mass produced. America began producing metal caskets as well but WWII curtailed the production of metal caskets. During the war many caskets were made of cardboard lined with fabric.
At one point there were seven hundred companies producing caskets in America. In 2003 there were only about one hundred and forty of those companies remaining. In 2004 a large membership discount retailer began offering imported Chinese caskets and caused quite a disruption in the casket industry. This lead to increased competition in the low priced casket market.
