This edition covers the changes the market has undergone during the Covid-19 pandemic. 2020 was a difficult year for many sectors, but the kitchen furniture sector in the UK faired better than most, with just a 5% drop in traded value across the year. While there were casualties, particularly looking at high street brands, the focus on home and increased levels of savings has had some positive outcome for the kitchen furniture market and growth in 2021 will take overall market values to higher than pre-pandemic levels.
This report reviews the total kitchen furniture market, looking at recent performance, trends, influences and forecast performance. Product sub-sectors of furniture, worktops and sinks are reviewed in detail to understand specific influences and more detailed product break-downs, for example by materials or construction.
As a key driver for the market, housebuilding is reviewed, including future forecasts for new build. Alongside this the housing market provides additional stimuli as people move and/or improve. The changing nature of household structures, is being responded to by manufacturers through numerous options to make kitchen spaces more accessible and multi-functional for old, young and those with mobility challenges.
Along with the supplier review, there is a look at different business models and consider the end-to-end service provided, matched to homeowner’s propensity to ‘get someone in’ rather than DIY. Leading suppliers are profiled and the market and distribution assessed with supplier market shares and channel shares.
