The total UK market for plumbing contracting and hard FM services is difficult to define and estimate, due to the significant overlap that exists with other sectors of the construction industry, most notably M&E activities. The situation is further complicated by the presence (especially within the plumbing contracting sector) of so many small companies and self-employed workers, for which little or no reliable data is available.

In the case of plumbing contractors, all estimates and market data includes the cost of labour, materials, plant and equipment, sub-contracting costs and profit margins. In the case of hard FM services, the market data refers to the percentage of bundled TFM contracts taken by hard FM services (such as building maintenance) in value terms.
