The value of the UK water heating market increased by a modest 1% in 2016, following two years of slightly higher growth. The market for domestic and non-domestic water heating products has seen relatively steady growth since 2013, with the recovery in the UK economy stimulating construction activity, also consumer and business confidence levels. The core product sectors of the UK water heating market include hot water storage systems, which account for an estimated 67%, followed by instantaneous water heaters and boiling water heaters and taps.
Positive influences on this market include the growing concerns about energy efficiency and the environment. The UK Government has introduced a significant amount of environmental legislation in recent years placing a greater emphasis on carbon emissions and fuel efficiency. However, the number of homes with hot water storage has declined significantly in recent years, with an increasing reliance on combination boilers for hot water provision. The vast majority of new homes now have a mains pressurised system installed as standard. Sales of vented cylinders have declined significantly as a result of this shift towards mains pressurised systems. With the trend towards off-site solutions, there is a growing number of pre-plumbed unvented systems, particularly in the new build sector.
The market for instantaneous water heaters has seen some moderate growth more recently, particularly in the commercial sector. However, demand for multi-point instantaneous water heaters have been negatively impacted by the development of the market for combination boilers. This sector is dominated by replacement demand, which is a large, but declining market. The market for boiling water heaters for hot drinks has seen good growth over the last 5 years, particularly in commercial applications such as offices, staff canteens and factories. In addition, there is an increasingly significant market for boiling water taps in the UK.
Although the market situation in early 2017 is more subdued, the current forecast for the UK water heating market remains moderately positive, with more steady growth from 2018 onwards. Following the UK Brexit vote in mid-2016, the outlook for this market is very much dependent on the path taken to exit the EU and the impact this has on the construction sector and consumer confidence. It is forecast that the UK water heating market will increase by around 10% between 2017 and 2021.
