Residential Garden Buildings and Structures – 5 Key Facts
The Residential Garden Buildings and Structures Market Report has been expanded in the 7th edition to include a broader range of categories. This includes buildings which are either attached to or detached from the main residential building, which may be insulated or non-insulated.
Our 5 key facts bring you the essential intel you will need to start your journey ready to help you dive deeper into the insight.
1, Rather than curbing market growth, the Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in demand for garden buildings and structures and more disposable income became available to spend on big ticket garden renovation projects. The market grew 18% overall between 2016 and 2020 in value.
2, Demand for detached garden buildings and structures including log cabins, garden rooms, sheds and shelters increased while demand for conservatories, orangeries and other glazed extensions decreased.
3, Product mix for detached garden buildings and structures is likely to evolve over the next 5 years, led by the demand for insulation in log cabins and summerhouses and increasing popularity of all-year-round use garden rooms, which will blur lines between different types of garden buildings.
4,The supply side is fragmented with suppliers tending to be aligned with materials – e.g. timber based log cabins, aluminum greenhouses, modular panel rooms and uPVC conservatories. In addition, the upper sectors of the market are characterised by fully bespoke design, build and install organisations.
5, Customisation and specification upgrades are the key drivers for value growth in the garden buildings for all year use sector, whilst the sheds, log cabins, and summerhouses sectors has been boosted by the increased demand for more affordable alternatives.
