The UK special needs bathroom market had been growing in volume and value until the impact of the recent economic recession. But like other higher value consumer goods has been under considerable pressure more recently, resulting from the difficult new housebuilding sector and also the downturn in the home improvement sector.
In 2011, the special needs bathroom market had an estimated value of around £128 million at Manufacturers Selling Prices (MSP). This represents an increase of around 2% when compared to the market size in 2010; a further moderate increase of 2% is expected in 2012. However, the outlook for the UK special needs bathroom market in 2012 is relatively positive, with steady growth anticipated as the UK economy starts to recover and as consumer confidence and housebuilding levels improve.
Estimated at £46 million at MSP in 2011, the showering facilities sector dominates the industry's sales; many baths are now being replaced by easy access shower enclosures and wetroom areas. This is followed by accessories (£31m), toilet facilities (£24m), brassware (£17m) and baths (£10m). In the UK bathroom products market there has been a strong trend towards inclusive design. Inclusive design is a general approach in which designers ensure that their products and services address the needs of the widest possible audience, irrespective of age or ability.
A significant proportion of the special needs bathroom market represents direct sales from the specialist manufacturer or supplier to the end-user, which is common practice with specialised products. Other channels include merchants and distributors plus DIY multiples, many who offer own branded goods. In addition, the level of special needs bathroom product sold via Internet e-tailers has seen significant growth in recent years.
Around 76 per cent of people over age 65 own their own home, giving them the highest proportion of disposable income (Source: ONS). These people are looking to invest in their homes and are looking for well-designed, attractive bathroom products that will last for the rest of their life. With a growing number of elderly and disabled people in the UK, special needs bathroom products suitable for use by all users are likely to exhibit significant market potential in years to come. In the medium-longer term as the economy improves and UK consumers become more diverse in terms of age and ability, stronger growth is expected in this market sector. In 2016, it is estimated that the UK special needs bathroom market will be worth some £150 million at MSP, which would represent an increase of around 15% compared to the market size in 2012.
