The UK Kitchen Retailers & Installers Market 2004-2013:-
Sources indicate that buyers of kitchen furniture and appliances are increasingly seeking a wider choice of products with factors such as brand, technology and innovative design becoming increasingly popular in recent years as consumers seek to ‘trade up’ from lower value products, often sourced from more price competitive channels such as the DIY multiples. This trend has supported the channel in terms of value performance in recent years, with retailers likely to continue to seek to exploit this change in consumer behaviour in the medium to longer term.
The kitchen retail and installation channel is characterised by a significant level of fragmentation, with a large number of independents active in the sector. Sources suggest that this in part is due to the ongoing level of manufacturer support for the independents, particularly in terms of price support. This, coupled with a focus on differentiation in terms of service and product offering suggests a relatively bright future for the independent retail channel in the medium to longer term in terms of maintaining current market share of the UK kitchen products market. However, there are also some commentators who, in July 2009, are forecasting a further decline in UK economic activity and as such, forecasts remain subject to variation. Whilst the likelihood of a ‘double-dip’ in economic activity remains unlikely, the suggestion of such a scenario further illustrates the ongoing fragility of the UK economy at present.

Brief Report Synopsis:-
In mid 2009, there are some indications that the decline in economic performance overall has ‘bottomed out’, with an increasing number of industry commentators anticipating a ‘U-shaped’ recovery in the following 6-12 months in terms of overall GDP output. Therefore, whilst the recession remains deep and is likely to impact all sectors of the UK kitchen market for many years to come, there are some small, tentative, yet positive signs of a return to improved economic performance in the coming months through to the end of 2009. However, there are also some commentators who, in July 2009, are forecasting a further decline in UK economic activity and as such, forecasts remain subject to variation. Whilst the likelihood of a ‘double-dip’ in economic activity remains unlikely, the suggestion of such a scenario further illustrates the ongoing fragility of the UK economy at present.
Whilst consumer confidence remains at a particularly low ebb, trends within the wider retail sector suggest a resilience from consumers to the economic downturn, particularly in the commodity good sectors, which may foreshorten the overall impact of the recession. In addition, there are also tentative signs of, if not a recovery, then a cessation of price decline in the housing market, with the most optimistic sign of growth this year as house prices in June rose by 0.9% according to some sources. With like for like retail sales rising 4.6% in April 2009, this has promoted further optimism for a relatively rapid return to growth in the wider UK economy.
Whilst the majority of kitchen refurbishment products remain primarily in the ‘luxury goods’ sector, however, they are unlikely to be buoyed by a resilience in the commodity market. Nevertheless, a return to improved economic performance overall, supported by a stabilising house-moving and housebuilding market should offer some improved opportunities for value and volume growth in the domestic kitchen market in the near to medium term.
The UK kitchen retail and installation channel has increasingly come under pressure from competing channels such as the DIY multiples in recent years, with the ‘sheds’ having encroached and subsequently gained substantial share of the lower – middle value sector of the market. A repositioning of the kitchen retail sector toward a higher value proposition has in part gone some way to protecting this channel’s share, coupled with changes in buyer behaviour in recent years.
The report provides a comprehensive review of the independent Kitchen retail market and forecasts industry trends for 2009-2013 as well as ranking the Kitchen companies and providing sales estimates enabling market share estimation. In addition, the report also profiles each company’s financial health and illustrating their key financial performance indicators through their ‘at a glance’ charts.
