The 9th edition of the ‘Commercial Washroom Market Report UK 2023-2027’ has been published by AMA Research. The report represents an informed and up-to-date review of the commercial washroom market and covers washroom panel systems, baths & sanitaryware, brassware & taps, showers & wetrooms, and special needs equipment. It includes comment on market prospects for these product sectors and overall implications for UK manufacturers and suppliers of these solutions.
The commercial washroom sector is diverse and incorporates a broad range of products, ranging from stylish systems specified in washrooms in commercial offices and hotels to more utilitarian and vandal resistant washrooms for use in prisons and schools, for example.
This report primarily focuses on communal washroom products with end-use applications including schools, FE colleges, universities, hospitals, care homes, sports stadia, leisure clubs, gyms, hotel health clubs, commercial offices, retail shopping centres, supermarkets, restaurants, prisons, detention centres, transport hubs, public buildings etc.
It does not include products included in bathroom or shower-room PODs, also products used in ensuite installations in hotel bedrooms, or other single-living accommodations.
Product developments in the UK commercial washroom market have increasingly focused on quality and design with a trend towards higher value products with added functionality and improved performance.
Since the pandemic, there has been a heightened focus on hygiene measures, in healthcare settings and other commercial areas. The risk of scalding has become an important concern, particularly in care homes, hospitals, and schools. With the government target to meet carbon net zero emissions by 2050, the requirement to save water and energy, particularly in sizeable commercial premises, is increasingly necessary.
Durability and ease of maintenance has also become an important consideration in the design and development of these products. This, given the potential to extend the refurbishment cycle by ensuring that washroom panel systems, sanitaryware, brassware, showers, etc., continue to look good and last for as long as possible. The use of smart technology and the digital control of washroom systems has become more prevalent. A smart washroom can deliver an improved quality of experience for users and also achieve building management efficiencies.
With the cost-of-living crunch and an uncertain UK economy at the start of 2023, we forecast that the overall UK commercial washroom market value is likely to show a moderate decline of -1% in 2023, with a more positive outlook from 2024 onwards, supported by the increasing demand for more premium, smart, and bespoke washroom solutions.
