The UK Homewares Market 2017-2022

Summary
Homewares market is forecast to grow by just 0.4% in 2017, the slowest annual growth of any year over the last five years. Q1 2017 figures showed that the homewares market declined, with John Lewis, Dunelm, and Asda performing poorly at the start of 2017. Rising prices and falling real wage growth will endure through 2017, dampening consumer confidence and demand for non-essential items. Certain homewares sub-sectors will outperform in 2017, such as decorative accessories and home fragrances, benefiting from fewer people moving house, as customers improve their existing homes instead.

Online homewares sales are forecast to rise from 2017 to five years’ time. Online pureplay retailers Amazon, Shop-Direct-owned Very.co.uk, and Wayfair.co.uk will help drive online sales, especially as they invest in improving the convenience aspect of online shopping via shorter delivery times and lower delivery charges.

Instore experience, convenience and customer service have all risen in importance from 2016 to 2017 overall. Female consumers are more demanding than their male counterparts and found every store driver more important. 25-34 year-olds purchase homewares the most frequently and over-65s shop for homewares the least of all age groups. Young shoppers will be influenced by fast-changing interior trends, which fashion retailers can use to their advantage.

Multichannel retailers, such as Next and Tesco, have invested in their online offer through the launch of delivery saver schemes. IKEA is also now trialling click and collect in its order and collection point (OCP) stores; this should boost IKEA online sales, particularly if it is rolled out to all stores. However, many homewares retailers still do not offer transactional websites, including B&M, Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Lidl and Poundland.

The report "The UK Homewares Market 2017-2022" provides a detailed analysis of the homewares market, with value and volume forecast up to 2022.

Scope
- Certain homewares sub-sectors will outperform in 2017, such as decorative accessories and home fragrances, benefiting from fewer people moving house, as customers improve their existing homes instead.
- Online pureplay retailers Amazon, Shop-Direct-owned Very.co.uk, and Wayfair.co.uk will help drive online sales, especially as they invest in improving the convenience aspect of online shopping via shorter delivery times and lower delivery charges.
- Instore experience, convenience and customer service have all risen in importance from 2016 to 2017 overall. Female consumers are more demanding than their male counterparts and found every store driver more important.
- General discounters B&M, The Range and now Poundland, which has recently launched a homewares range, are encroaching on grocers’ share of the market. These retailers will support homewares market growth during a tough economic environment as consumers look to trade down.
