The UK Bathroom Retailers Market 2004-2013:-
Whilst independent Bathroom retailers may lose some market share in 2009, a period of rapid transition and market re-positioning should result in a more healthy Bathroom distribution channel from 2010 onwards. This report, based on company sales from 75% of the market, found that Bathroom retailers are facing an increasingly difficult and complex trading environment in late 2008, with rising pressure on sales and profitability likely to characterise the channel in 2009.
The implications for Bathroom manufacturers and suppliers are clear as the independents seek to differentiate themselves from competing channels such as the DIY ‘Sheds’ and merchants. The market continues to polarise, though at present only 10% of independent retailers are judged as being ‘at serious risk’, with companies with a less well defined market position likely to feel the full force of the downturn in 2009.
Key Benefits of the Report include:-

Brief Report Synopsis:-
Sources indicate that whilst there was some degree of positive performance in the Bathroom Retailers market during the first quarter of 2008, declining consumer confidence and a number of key market influences resulted in a lacklustre second half of the year and a rapid slowdown in activity in Q3 and Q4 2008.
During mid-late 2008, the housing market and subsequent house moving activity slowed substantially, leading to a growing trend of postponement or curtailment of bathroom refurbishment projects. In addition, the growing financial crisis increasingly degraded consumer confidence during 2008, further impacting on big-ticket expenditure such as bathroom refurbishment. As such, the market is expected to have lost some ground during 2008 overall, with the year polarised between reasonable growth in activity in the first quarter and rapid decline in the last quarter of the year.
With the rapid downturn in new house building, the domestic Bathroom products market remains highly dependent on the refurbishment sector in 2009, though the impact of the credit crisis in 2008 leading to recession has severely reduced consumers’ appetite for bathroom enhancement. Whilst there was some optimism from the market in late 2008 that consumers were more likely to ‘improve not move’, with consumer confidence at particularly low ebb at present, sources indicate that large-scale refurbishment has reduced dramatically in recent months. Given current predictions in terms of the overall economic health of the UK, this general negative trend is likely to continue for the remainder of 2009.
Recent announcements regarding the reduction of the UK Bank of England base rate to 1% in February 2009, and the announcement by the Halifax that house prices increased by 1.9% in January may provide some optimism for the market. However, to what extent the interest rate reduction and quantitative easing tactics employed by the Government will stimulate consumer confidence remains to be seen, with banks seemingly reluctant to pass on mortgage rate cuts or increase lending. Nevertheless, given a sustained return to growth in house prices, consumer confidence may experience more positive growth in the coming months rather than experience any further substantial decline.
The report provides a comprehensive review of the independent Bathroom retail market and forecasts industry trends for 2009-2013 as well as ranking the Bathroom companies and providing sales estimates enabling market share estimation. In addition, the report also profiles each company’s financial health and illustrating their key financial performance indicators through their ‘at a glance’ charts. The 'ultimate' report package also includes mailing, telephone and contact details for an estimated 90% of the market, providing comprehensive industry analysis and a useful sales & marketing tool.
