Rimless Toilet Market in UK 2017-2021

Rimless Toilet Market in UK 2017-2021

About Rimless Toilet

Rimless toilets, as the name suggests, offer simplicity and convenience owing to the absence of the rim. The introduction of rimless toilets in the global toilet market is one of the few milestones in the market. From a visual point of view, a rimless toilet is similar to a conventional toilet that features a bowl, a cistern, and a seat. However, the major difference between the two toilet designs, which is visible on a closer look, is the absence of a rim in the rimless variant. The rim is nothing but an extended contour along the perimeter of the bowl to ensure even distribution of water to rinse the toilet bowl after its use. Hygiene is the main reason that prompted a design upgrade in the form of rimless fixtures. Due to the difficulty in cleaning it, the underside of the rim becomes a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria, thus facilitating the multiplication and spread of germs through physical contact.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the rimless toilet market in UK to grow at a CAGR of 4.43% during the period 2017-2021.

These toilets are replete with self-indulgent features, such as built-in bidets, heated seats, and lids that are raised automatically. These toilets can be connected to the smartphones as well.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growth in hospitality sector. The hospitality sector in the UK is witnessing an upward revenue trend owing to the increase in the number of international tourist footfalls. The number of visitors to each region varies, depending on the landscape and the tourist attractions, which means that the growth is likely to vary for the various regions. Hotel owners in the UK expect Manchester, Edinburgh, and Birmingham to be the major revenue earners. This outlook, in part, is attributed to the UK government’s investment in the growth of these places, which is helping to promote destinations outside the capital. Also, some of the regional cities are likely to witness an increase in international tourist footfalls, mainly due to the weakened pound sterling.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Intense market competition. The bathroom or the toilet segment includes a wide range of products from established market players such as GROHE and TOTO, which offer about 30 different types of WCs. Due to its advantages, the rimless toilet product segment is likely to see a steady adoption rate during the forecast period. The manufacturers of rimless toilets are likely to face stiff competition as most of them are developing new products. The vendors compete primarily on price, quality, customer service, store location, and merchandise assortment.
