Positive and negative factors affecting the market – recovery in UK economy, housebuilding & housemoving, homeworking, changing lifestyles etc.AMA Research has published a new report covering the domestic garden rooms & buildings market. The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the different product sectors (log cabins, modular garden rooms and timber framed garden buildings and ‘others’). Reviews of the supply and distribution channels are also provided.

Following a period of good annual growth of 6-7% between 2006-08, the UK garden rooms and buildings market declined in 2009/10 due to the economic downturn and falling numbers of housing transactions. The market has since stabilised, with future prospects looking more positive. The market for garden rooms and buildings was worth an estimated £110m at retail prices in 2012, including value added services such as installation. Market sectors have become polarised, with most demand at the lower and higher ends of the sector.

The main reason for installing a garden room or building is to increase the amount of living space for the householder. The key market benefits of installing a garden building as opposed to other options (such as extension or conservatory) include the faster speed of installation, general absence of planning permission, lower cost and minimal disruption to the customer.

There are 3 main types of garden buildings: modular garden rooms, accounting for an estimated 42% of the market by value, log cabins accounting for around 33% share and timber framed buildings accounting for the remaining 24% share. However, by volume log cabins are the largest sector, holding an estimated 77% share and these are mainly sold as self assembly. In contrast other garden buildings such as modular garden rooms and timber framed buildings tend to be sold with installation included. Homeworking has continued to increase in popularity in recent years and this has contributed to sales of garden buildings. However, whilst garden rooms were initially seen as a solution to homeworking, increasingly they are being used for a much wider range of activities and specification demands are developing accordingly.

Garden rooms and buildings are distributed through a range of different channels including DIY outlets and builders merchants, online, mail order and through garden centres, with manufacturers increasingly selling direct via their own websites. The Internet is having a significant impact on distribution as online research allows consumers to easily compare product specifications and prices, searches may take consumers to companies in other channels and companies with transactional websites can offer a much larger range of products than they can offer in store. Indeed some companies have entered different product sectors to their traditional offering (e.g. supermarkets offering log cabins). There is a diverse range of large and small manufacturers including subsidiaries of large European groups, medium-sized UK companies and family businesses.

Prospects for 2013 are positive and pent up demand is likely to assist market recovery, but the unpredictable UK weather also influences the market to a certain extent which may impact on annual growth rates. The volume of units sold is estimated to increase at a lower rate than the increase in the value of the market and is forecast to reach approximately 32–33,000 units in 2017. The trend for increased customisation of buildings is expected to continue as homeowners want their garden rooms to be more versatile, such as having multi-room rooms, increased glazing and addition of bathrooms & kitchens.
