Household Storage 2017

Household storage market will remain robust, compared to other big-ticket home sectors, with steady growth of nearly 10% forecast over the next five years, primarily driven by volume growth. The discounters are set to benefit from the UK’s period of economic uncertainty which is forcing consumers to tighten their spending, with the ONS calculating that real wages fell by about 0.5% in the three months to July 2017, compared to inflation of 2.6% y-o-y for the month of July.

Mid-market players are most at risk from the premiumisation of ranges by discounters, which are aimed at consumers looking to trade down. Meanwhile, generation rent consumers move house more regularly, and therefore require small household items more often to complement existing features of new properties. This generation will be the driving force behind volume growth in the household storage sector.

In household storage, the discounters are set to benefit from this as consumers are open to trading down on non-essential items. Consumers will also look to defer big-ticket spending, choosing to purchase a clothing rail rather than a full-size wardrobe for example. Existing players must ensure prices remain competitive at a time when the discounters and value players are rapidly expanding into areas such as London and the South East.

Mid-market players are most at risk from the premiumisation of ranges by discounters, which are aimed at consumers looking to trade down. Mid-market players must ensure the quality of their products is clearly highlighted in comparison to competitors, and that they have a superior instore experience. Messy and empty shelves will see retailers lose out on sales to retailers such as B&M which attracts customers who know they will be able to find whatever they need instore.
