The UK residential window covering market is well-established and demonstrates resilience even during periods of declining consumer confidence. These products hold a dual role in homes, serving both decorative and practical purposes. The surge in online shopping, accelerated by the pandemic, has prompted suppliers to invest in enhancements that will gain significance as this societal shift endures.

Curtains, despite a gradual decline in market share, remain the dominant product sector in terms of value. Blinds emerged as the least affected by the pandemic, likely due to their easy installation, aligning with the pandemic-driven DIY trend. Plantation shutters, sought-after high-value items, are gaining market share. The integration of smart home technology is emerging as a noteworthy trend, with motorised and automated systems growing in popularity.

Among the key players, Hunter Douglas stands as the largest company in the UK market. Noteworthy suppliers include Sanderson, Cleland McIver, Mzuri Group, and Louvolite. Notably, China accounts for roughly half of all imports within this market, reflecting a substantial reliance on overseas manufacturing.
