Short term prospects in 2014-15 and medium term prospects up to 2018.
The overall market for paint, wallcoverings and woodcare in 2013 has seen a moderate increase in value terms, however the relative performance of individual product sectors has varied considerably. All of the product sectors are mature and thus vulnerable to shifts in the underlying economic climate, prevailing weather conditions as well as trends in home decor, consumer confidence and spending.

The post-recession market, at least to 2012, has been relatively volatile with the DIY sector in particular struggling as a result of the stagnant housing market, low levels of consumer confidence and rising pressure on household incomes. Recovery was also constrained by two years of poor summer weather in 2011/12, which inhibited DIY activity - particularly in garden care – though 2013 was a much better summer period.

However, government initiatives aimed at boosting the housing market, a stronger economic performance, a higher level of mortgage approvals and house sales, warmer and drier weather in 2013 and improved consumer confidence, have all contributed towards some improvement in the market. All categories returned to growth in 2013, although sales of wallcoverings, overall, remained relatively flat.
In value terms, paint and effects represent the largest product segment in the wider UK decorative products market, worth an estimated £557m in 2013, and representing growth of around 4-5% since 2009. Recovery in the paint and effects market since the 2008 peak has been slow - consumer spending and housemoving has been low, but substantial increases in global raw materials prices passed down the supply chain helped to effect a marginal rise in value.
Recovery in the wallcoverings sector has been slower than in the paint/woodcare sector, with the former – at least in the housing sector – more reliant on redecorating and refurbishing activity, which naturally takes longer to respond to higher activity in housemoving levels. However, from around Q3 2012 and on into 2013 the market began to recover, driven by a rise in volume sales as well as the ever-wider availability of high-end designer wallcoverings, to reach an estimated £168m in 2013.
Woodcare sales were down significantly in 2012, with exterior products in particular affected by poor summer weather constraining outdoor and garden related activities. Some product categories fared better than others, with exterior wood stains and dyes, for example, slightly more popular than preservers, shed and fence treatments and decking treatments. We estimate that market value overall remained relatively flat in 2012, however, demand improved through 2013 with market growth estimated at around 3% in 2013, to reach a value of £156m.
Current housing market forecasts indicate that, at least in the short to medium term, there could be progressive improvement in underlying demand – both in housebuilding and moving levels. Growth is also likely to come from the health and education sectors. Our forecasts indicate the paint and effects market to be worth an estimated £573m in 2014, with market value rising to £615m by 2018.
