Research and Markets: Household Textiles Market Report - UK 2014-2018 Analysis

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nwwswh/household) has announced the addition of the "Household Textiles Market Report - UK 2014-2018 Analysis " report to their offering.

This report provides an up to date review of the household textiles market. Focusing on market size and trends, product mix, supply, distribution and future prospects, the report is comprehensive, informative and will facilitate operational and strategic decision-making processes.

The UK household textiles market was worth an estimated £1.36 billion in 2013, representing growth of around 2% from £1.33 billion in 2012. The market is mature and demand is heavily influenced by external factors such as household income, consumer confidence and spending, underlying strength of the housing market and trends in home decor. Market value rose by 3% in 2013, with 3-4% currently forecast for 2014. The current positive trends in the housing market and underlying economy are likely to remain key drivers for growth in the short-medium term.

Imports of household textiles account for more than half of the domestic market, and have continued their upward trend, in value terms worth £1.05 billion in 2013, while exports have also risen and are now worth £130m. The rise in import values also reflects, however, variable exchange rates and raw material costs as well as higher manufacturing costs in China, a major source country for household textiles imports to the UK.

Sales of bed linen were worth around £560m in 2013 and are forecast to increase by approximately 4% in 2014. Duvet covers accounted for the largest sub-sector, followed by sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads/throws/bed runners and blankets. Sales of filled products increased by around 2% in 2012-13 but with good growth of 3-4% currently forecast for 2014. Sales of duvets are likely to remain positive with evidence of consumers trading up to higher value products likely to underpin the sub-sector. The market for bathroom textiles grew by around 3% in 2013 with a similar growth rate of 3-4% forecast for 2014, with table and kitchen linen also recording similar growth rates.
