Tables and Charts

This report contains 25 tables and charts.

There has been steady growth in the market in recent years, particularly in the 2015-16 period, reflecting the growing level of consumer confidence generally and higher levels of house building. The worktop market has probably grown fractionally faster than the overall kitchen and bathroom furniture markets, reflecting a shift to higher value worktops and the trend for larger worktop areas, incorporating, for example, island and peninsular units.
As far as kitchen worktops are concerned, the market generally follows a pattern similar to that for kitchen furniture.

The bathroom worktops market has followed a growth pattern similar to the one for bathroom furniture, mainly due to a lower level of separate worktop replacement in this sector, when compared with the kitchen sector.The value of the bathroom worktops market has grown, mainly because of the increasing popularity of bathroom furniture, but has also benefited to some extent from the use of more expensive materials, such as solid surface products with integrated basins, along with quartz and granite surfaces.
