The UK commercial washrooms market is estimated to have increased by 3% in 2014 compared to the market size in 2013, reflecting the improving market conditions post-recession within the non-domestic construction industry. The UK commercial washrooms market is now showing some signs of recovery, following a static period over the past 5 years due in part to the global financial crisis and its impact upon the building sector. The upward trend is driven by stronger RMI activity in non-residential sectors, allied to more positive new work activity.

Washroom panel systems continue to account for the largest sector of the market, followed by sanitaryware, brassware, showers/mixers and baths. It is estimated that around two thirds of commercial washroom products are distributed via trade channels such as builders / plumbers’ merchants and distributors. The remainder represents mainly direct sales from supplier to end-user and includes online.

The baths sector is likely to continue to face competition from showers, which are becoming more popular, and the more muted performance of the health sector and the potential trend towards smaller premises with more local delivery will also have an impact. Price competition is expected to continue, given the level of cheaper imports and components, potentially acting as a curb on overall value growth within the marketplace. Nevertheless, manufacturers will seek to offset this by focussing upon added value design, quality and performance. Manufacturers will also seek to offer total washroom solutions with an emphasis upon design, environmental benefits and ease of use. There will also be a particular focus upon using advanced technology.

More positive forecasts for the construction market indicate that the commercial washrooms market is likely to show year on year growth over the next 4 years, with the private sector expected to be the key driver of growth. However, continuing economic uncertainty due to high levels of debt within the Eurozone and planned budget cuts within the public sector, especially in health and education, may all restrict rates of growth. This may in turn reduce business confidence and create uncertainty in the key areas of leisure, offices and retail. This is however also counterbalanced by the argument that businesses may now decide to invest, given clearer direction in Government policies, post-Election. The market is forecast to have increased by around 11% in 2019.
