DIY Retailing - UK - May 2016
“The UK DIY market remains challenging with growth in consumer spending slowing and retail sales through the specialists going into decline. Quality and staff expertise are key points of difference for the specialists, but they need to find a way to bring this closer to the everyday lives of consumers. The introduction of Bunnings will increase competition at the harder end of the market, so now is the time to start looking at how best to capitalise on a growing generation of renters.”
– Thomas Slide, Retail Analyst
This report discusses the following key topics:
- Are the sheds struggling to cater for generation rent?
- What will be the impact of Bunnings?
- Can One Kingfisher really work?
The market is being impacted by a societal shift in housing tenure which is seeing a significantly higher proportion of consumers living in rented accommodation rather than owning their own home. The leading specialists are struggling to cater effectively to the needs of this growing population of renters and as a result, the non-specialists including Amazon and the discounters such as Poundland or B&M Bargains, with their limited ranges, low prices and convenient store locations or delivery options, are picking up a growing share of the market.
