Global Pandemic Causes Average Cost of the Funeral and Caskets To Rise Up by Up to 30% from Year 2020

The price of a funeral in the US is continuously rising year after year. One of the main reasons for the continuous rise in pricing for funerals in the US is the rising average cost of funeral merchandise like caskets or coffins.

Los Angeles, California, USA , July 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In addition to almost all merchandise being manufactured overseas these days, the global materials shortage and a big spike in cost of transportation have led to a sharp rise in funeral expenses since last year. The average funeral products, like caskets and coffins, are at least 20% to 30% more expensive in 2021 than in 2020. There are also no signs that the rise in prices will slow down; In fact, these days many funeral homes and funeral casket companies experience shortage in the funeral products, there are signs that, if anything, the price for an average funeral will go up further.

While many assume that as the COVID-19 crisis starts receding and everything starts opening up, factories and supply centers open and try to work normally, average costs on most everyday used goods keep rising, and funeral products are not an exception. In the last 10 years, average funeral costs went up more than 100%, and the pandemic situation made everything even vorse. The data does not suggest that prices are going down, at least not anytime soon. Even if the COVID-19 crisis recedes, any decrease in pricing will probably be over the next several months, if not a few years.

“The average cost of a funeral is around $7-10k, including burial, embalming, transfer of remains, and service fee etc.,” said a representative of Trusted Caskets company. It is an increase of around 20% at least. So, to put things into context, between 2014 and 2019, funeral prices gradually increased by 6.4%, according to data from the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), but these price changes are widely different from State to State.
