Report Summary

The inclusive bathroom and kitchen products market experienced sustained growth in 2016, although at a lesser pace than 2015. In the second half of the year the 'Brexit effect' had started to take hold, with consumer and business confidence waning. However, in 2017 market growth was more positive, despite economic uncertainty surrounding the UK plans to exit from the EU. The higher level of housing completions supported demand for inclusive bathroom and kitchen products at this time.

The inclusive bathroom and kitchen market has been positively impacted the trend towards product solutions that are suitable for all users. As such, inclusive bathroom and kitchen products have become much more aesthetically pleasing. The focus is on functionality, but style is also now an equally important consideration. Consumers are demanding attractive designs that will 'future-proof' and add value to their property; and are also suitable for all family members to use.

Consumer demand for inclusive bathroom and kitchen products is growing as the population ages and the number of people with disabilities increase. Improvements in healthcare and lifestyles mean the UK population is getting older. The number of multi-generation households in the UK is also increasing. The fastest growing household type in 2017 is households containing two or more families. The shortage of affordable housing and elderly relatives in need of care are driving more families to house three generations in one property.

With an increasing number of elderly and disabled people in the UK, the growing demand for inclusive bathroom and kitchen products looks set to continue. Solid levels of growth are expected to continue until 2022, with the market expected to be stronger at the end of that period. The market will benefit from very large demand for disability adaptations in existing homes.
