Review of key economic factors impacting on the market.
The UK furniture fittings market experienced steady growth in the years to 2007, before declining in the 2008-2011 period, as the financial crisis affected the domestic furniture market. Further solid growth has taken place since then, and the market is estimated to have grown by 5% at manufacturers’ selling prices (MSP) in 2015. The sector has benefited from growth trends in recent years in the domestic furniture market, particularly the kitchen furniture sector. Overall average growth on an annual basis has been around 3-4% since 2011, which is higher growth compared to the furniture market as a whole, but broadly in line with the development of the kitchen furniture sector.
