Plumbing (Industrial Report) - UK - August 2014
“The plumbing products sector is now benefiting not only from stronger new construction activity, but both kitchens and bathrooms are widely perceived as key rooms for home improvement. The rooms are seen to add appeal to a property at the time of a house sale, as well as being a statement of lifestyle. With house price inflation now a firm feature of the UK market (and a feature that will need to be externally controlled in the medium term), there is a major stimulus to the market and the prospects are that demand will strengthen in excess of average GDP growth in the UK.”
