The 6th edition of the ‘Pipes and Fittings Market Report UK 2022-2026’ has been published by AMA Research. The report represents an informed and up-to-date review of the UK market which covers the domestic and light commercial applications for plumbing pipes and pipes for rainwater, soil and waste, together with associated fittings.
Incorporating original input and primary research, the report contains an in-depth analysis of the UK Pipes and Fittings market, including market structure, recent market and future trends.
The market encompasses a wide range of products including pipe systems for internal heating and potable water supply; rainwater guttering, downpipes and fittings; soil and waste pipes, traps and fittings. Value growth in the market is largely driven by levels of demand from key end-use sectors, principally in housebuilding and non-residential construction.
Market value is also affected by changes in raw material prices, especially copper, which fell in price during the early part of the pandemic when many construction sites were closed as part of the Government’s lockdown measures. However, copper prices rose quickly in the second half of 2021 and through much of 2021. Although prices have fallen in the first half of 2022, the higher prices charged to customers over time and has acted as a boost to market value growth.
The long-term trend of switching from copper to less expensive plastic pipe systems and fittings has acted as a constraint on market growth, which has been slower than that for rainwater, soil and waste products in recent years.
