AMA Research are pleased to announce the publication of the tenth edition of the report, “Domestic Central Heating Market - UK 2011-2015”. The report represents an informed and up-to-date and detailed review of the market and offers excellent value for money.
Key issues covered in the report:
Boilers - Combination, Traditional, System etc.
Radiators - Standard Panel, Decorative, Towel Warmers etc.
Heating Controls - Programmable Thermostats, Wireless, TRVs, Compensators etc.
The total market for domestic central heating products is substantial, valued at around £1.06 billion at manufacturers’ prices in 2011. Many sectors of the market are demonstrating product innovation, reflecting the increasing impact of energy efficiency legislation and new development opportunities arising from integrated solar thermal heating solutions and other renewables. Although thecurrent economic situation is constraining the market - particularly in new build - the Boiler Scrappage Scheme in 2010 has lifted demand in the refurbishment sector.
Areas of particular interest include:-
Impact of increasing legislation regarding the efficiency and environmental impact of domestic heating systems - EuP, Part L, Code for Sustainable Homes.
Considerable market opportunities in the replacement sector - there is still around 12 million non-condensing boilers in UK homes, with 3 million ‘G’ rated.
Impact of new build trends on the domestic central heating market - shift towards flats, increasing use of electricity as a source of fuel.
Roll out of smart metering and the increased consumer focus on energy efficient central heating products.
Impact of renewable technologies on domestic central heating systems.
Emergence of pre-plumbed heating ‘packages’ for easier installation.
