This report provides an in-depth analysis of the United Kingdom Pipes & Fittings market covering key products used for fittings and pipes (composite, metal and plastic). Key data points include the evolution of historical and future trends as well as an examination of technical segmentations, structure of supply and routes to market. The European pipe and fittings markets (for radiator, sanitary and gas connections) are largely mature. In markets where radiant heating and cooling solutions have experienced an upswing - such as in Germany - the pipes market has benefitted from stronger recent growth. The European pipes markets have undergone significant product mix changes over the last decade.
Metal pipes (copper tubes in particular) continue to lose share to plastic and composite pipe, due to the easier handling of bendable materials and the lower price volatility of plastic and composite pipes. On the fittings market, innovative push and in particular press fittings are gaining share rapidly as they are easier and faster to install. Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom are the largest European markets. France, Romania and Sweden experienced the fastest growth rates, driven by the strong performance of the new housing sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has put pressure on the markets with declines expected for most countries as new residential construction continues to suffer.
