Double-digit growth in the wet room market in the UK

The growth of the wetroom sector was particularly strong in 2015, AMA Research says.

The growth of the wetroom sector was particularly strong in 2015, AMA Research says.

The value of the wet room market in the UK has increased by ten per cent between 2014 and 2016, according to a report by AMA Research. The sector offers significant growth potential within the UK bathroom market, with demand for wet rooms having increased significantly in recent years, according to the market research company. Growth was particularly strong in 2015, with more modest rates in 2016/17 of around three per cent per annum. Moderate growth is currently forecast to 2021, when the market is expected to have increased by 18 per cent compared to the market size in 2017.

Key market drivers in 2014/15 included increasing levels of new house-building, particularly in the retirement/care sector, where wet rooms are more common. In 2016 and the first half of 2017, the wet room market experienced modest growth, largely a result of the political and economic uncertainty in the UK at present.
