Plumbing - UK - December 2016

Plumbing - UK - December 2016
The plumbing products sector has been recovering strongly from the recession, aided by the en-suite trend, high house price inflation encouraging home improvements, and comparatively buoyant new construction activity. Even so, there have been areas of disappointment, such as the government’s intervention on boiler replacements. Prospects have now been thrown into uncertainty with Brexit, but there remain some very positive influences on the market that will continue to result in growth.”

– Terry Leggett, Senior B2B Analyst

This report answers the following key questions:

  • What are the implications of Brexit?
  • Is e-commerce impacting the market?
