For the purposes of this report, the shopfitting market includes a wide range of products and services that are used in the fitting out of predominantly, but not exclusively, retail establishments. The market involves a wide variety of skills and products, the majority of which are also utilised in other market sectors within the construction industry.
These include the production and installation of:
- internal wall cladding
- windows and doors
- raised access flooring
- suspended ceilings
- shop facias
- EPOS equipment
- counters & furniture
- dressing rooms
- electronic display equipment
- heating & ventilation equipment
The requirements of shopfitters depend largely on the sector involved and specialist work is often subcontracted out to non-shopfitting specialists.
Typically, shopfitters offer design facilities, although specialist designers and architects, who have no in-house production or installation facilities and the work of specialist, non-shopfitting companies are beyond the confines of this report.
The following criteria are mentioned in the report:
- bespoke/standard fittings, with bespoke fittings representing custom-made products while standard products are often available “off the shelf”
- new build/refurbishment, with both sectors offering substantial opportunities for shopfitting companies
- client sector, with different client sectors having vastly different requirements in terms of fitting requirements, furniture, image and decor
- materials, which differ from sector to sector, with wood, aluminium laminates and composites being widely specified finishes in the shopfitting sector
