UK Window Dressings - 2018

Summary

UK Window Dressings - 2018, report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the window dressings market (including forecasts up to 2023), the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts, retailer profiles, retailer market shares, consumer data and future outlook. The report focuses on curtains, blinds and shutters. Consumer data is based on our 2018 UK window dressings survey, using a panel of 2,000 nationally representative consumers.

2018 has seen the window dressings category grow by just 0.8%, with a slow housing market and cautiousness about spending large amounts on homes resulting in another sluggish year. Dunelm remains the clear leader in the category, with its market share (17.4%) continuing to dwarf that of second largest player Hillary's (7.0%). Researching is widespread across all window dressing product types, both in stores and online.
