We also cover less common materials including solid wood. The market is put in context of the overall kitchen and bathroom furniture markets, with forecasts to 2027.

The market is complex, with raw material supply, fabrication and distribution all key elements of the supply chain. Companies may be involved in only one or all of these stages. Kitchen worktops account for the vast majority of installations, with bathroom worktops a more niche product. The market is driven by factors including the overall UK economy, design trends, and sustainability, which are all covered in detail in our PESTLE analysis.
