DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q7gm3x/domestic_central) has announced the addition of the "Domestic Central Heating Market Report - UK 2014-2018 Analysis " report to their offering.
The report reviews developments within the industry, with emphasis on both QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE market assessment - both essential requirements to good marketing planning. Recent trends, key influencing factors and forecasts of future developments are assessed.
The UK domestic heating market is significant, with an estimated total value of £1.1 billion at manufacturers selling prices in 2014. Since January 2013 this market has seen a notable upturn, in line with the UK economic recovery and the related upturn in housebuilding and consumer confidence. Government initiatives such as the ECO scheme and the Green Deal plus the further tightening of energy efficiency legislation has also supported growth in all product sectors of this market.
Estimated at £637 million at MSP in 2013, the boiler sector dominates the industry's sales. This is followed by radiators, heating controls and circulator pumps. The majority of these products are distributed via the trade channels such as builders/plumbers merchants and electrical wholesalers. However, replacement and retrofit products are often distributed via the DIY multiples and Online retailers. Other distributors include specialist heating retailers, hardware stores and catalogues. A number of products are also sold into OEMs.
The outlook for the UK domestic central heating market in Q4-2014 remains positive, with the continuing recovery in the UK economy and the related upturn in housebuilding and consumer confidence. However, with the election in mid-2015, uncertainties do exist regarding Government policy after this time. By 2018 it is estimated that the UK domestic central heating market will be worth some £1.3 billion, representing an increase of around 18% when compared to the estimated market size in 2014.
