Five Key Findings from the Report :-

  1. Kitchen installations reached a new high point as consumers continued to seek out products that up-graded on their existing kitchen. JKMR calculates the total UK fitted kitchen products market was worth £6.45 Billion in 2016, up 6.6% on 2015.
  2. MDA product value is expected to rise 7%, despite only a 2% rise in new kitchen installations. This increase is driven by more sales of higher priced products and an on-going shift in the mass market towards integrated cooking as a standard choice.
  3. Integrated MDA’s are out-performing fitted unit growth and current provisional 2017 figures show integrated MDA volumes up 4.4%, compared to an expected 2.35% rise in new kitchen installations.
  4. Overall value growth was driven mainly by volume growth and not increased spend levels. This was due to the ever-greater proportion of UK kitchens retailed via outlets where price is a key factor and volume leverage allows appliances to be effectively ‘discounted’.
  5. Ovens and Hobs have, however, seen an on-going improvement in price, with a value increase of 36% compared with a lower volume increase of 24%, making integrated cooking the best performing sector over the last five years.

Five Key Findings from the Report :-

  1. In the short term the UK luxury kitchen market is expected to continue to grow both in terms of sales levels and market share. Wealthy households remain even in times of economic downturn, and there is no evidence to suggest such households want to move away from fitted kitchens.
  2. New build sales will continue to have a role in sector growth in the medium term, with rising numbers of top end family housing constructed in smaller-scale developments.
  3. Sales continued to be driven by the kitchen as a ‘showcase’ room, and rising property prices leading householders to invest in major renovation, in order to create their ‘dream’ home.
  4. The luxury sector currently accounts for more than 32% of total kitchen market spend. However it is not expected to exceed a 34% level in the foreseeable future.
  5. A ‘stratospheric’ sub-sector of the luxury kitchen market has developed, where the budget is in excess of £75k. In this market, once clients make up their mind to spend serious money on their kitchen, then cost does become literally ‘no object’.

For the purposes of this report, the luxury kitchen sector is defined as client spend on fitted units at RSP (ex VAT) of at least £12,000, with a total core kitchen product budget of at least £28,000 (ex VAT).   Once VAT, ancillary products and any free-standing major domestic appliances, tiling, heating, flooring, fitting & decorating costs, plus spend on additional utility or second kitchen area, are factored in, a total budget starting point would typically be in the region of £40,000.

The report covers

  • Signature features of the Luxury Kitchen Market
  • Sector analysis by volume and value
  • Sales Trends
  • Trends in market share
  • Qualitative review of sector developments

Fitted Kitchen Market UK Overview 2017

Trend-Monitor fitted kitchen market report

This report by specialist research company JKMR covers a range of key figures for the total UK fitted kitchen products market, with a particular focus on fitted kitchen furniture sold to permanent domestic residences

The information in the report has been compiled from data and research carried out by JKMR and is an abridged version of the JKMR “Fitted Kitchen Overview Report 2017.”

Key Points

  • Despite fears that Brexit would disrupt consumer spending, 2016 saw the UK fitted kitchen market experience a year of growth, up 6.6% (in value) on 2015
  • Kitchen installations reached a new high point, as while consumers continued to seek out products that up-graded on their existing kitchen.
  • By the final quarter of 2016 there were signs that market value improvement was now being impacted by supplier price rises rather than consumer-driven higher expenditure.
  • 2017 will continue to see market growth but at a slower rate than in 2015/2016. Current economic indications suggest consumer confidence and disposable incomes are being affected by low wage inflation and increase in the basic cost of living, while inevitably any political uncertainty also affects consumer attitudes to housing and ‘big ticket’ investment.
