The total market for suspended ceilings and partitioning systems remained relatively flat between 2011 and 2013, followed by an improvement in 2014 with growth estimated at 3% during the year. The performance of the market has been variable in recent years with growth achieved in 2011, largely due to a value increase in the ceiling systems market during the year, followed by a relatively static performance in 2012 and 2013. Factors contributing to higher growth in 2014 included a recovery in refurbishment projects and smaller scale new build projects, with clients focusing on re-developing and re-branding existing properties.

The suspended ceilings market has seen the highest growth levels in the last 2 years, supported by price increases and a shift towards higher quality products and complete systems. The ceilings market also has a wider spread of end-use applications, although the sector has benefited from growth in the office sector over the past 2 years. Mineral fibre (including soft fibre) ceiling tiles accounts for the largest share of the market, having remained fairly stable in recent years. Metal ceilings are also popular and account for a significant share of the market, followed by gypsum.

The partitioning segment has seen only marginal rates of growth over the past two years, largely due to the high level of refurbishment and also due to their re-locatable nature. Price competition and other trends such as the growth of open plan workplaces has also influenced this market. The dominant sector within the partitions market is demountable/relocatable partitioning, which has performed well in recent years supported by the growing popularity of glazed partitioning.

In 2015 and 2016, the outlook for fit-out and refurbishment work remains positive, particularly in the office sector. In terms of new build activity, the focus is expected to remain on planned developments in the short term, rather than speculative developments, particularly in the entertainment and retail sector, where refurbishment work is also forecast to increase in line with growing consumer confidence.

Factors influencing the market for suspended ceiling tiles and partitions in the short to medium term include; raw material price fluctuations, improvements in product performance in particular in terms of acoustics and increased demand for a wider range of product options including colours, designs and materials.
