Over the last 25 years the UK shower market has been positively influenced by the increasing preference to shower than bathe, the growing trend towards wetroom solutions and the desire for minimalism and space within the bathroom environment.

Showering performance has also improved with the high number of mains pressurised water systems now installed in UK properties.

Product developments in the UK shower market have progressively centred on quality and design, with a trend towards higher value products with added functionality. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly offering easy to replace showering equipment in order to encourage upgrade.

Environmental issues are also becoming significantly more important, with a growing demand for sustainable (water and energy efficient) showering products. With the introduction of the Future Homes and Buildings Standard in 2025, new properties will be required to produce 75-80% fewer carbon emissions than properties delivered under the old regulations.

The use of smart technology in the home environment and the digital control of shower systems has also become more prevalent. Digital showers can deliver an improved quality of showering experience and also achieve water and energy efficiencies.

Inclusive design, which is considerate to the requirements of people with special needs, has become more mainstream. The high proportion of older people remaining in their own home is driving demand for accessible showering solutions that make the bathroom easier to use.

With the uncertain UK economy at mid-year, we estimate that the overall UK shower market is likely to show a value decline of 2% in 2023, with a more positive outlook from 2024 to the end of the forecast period.
