Slight increase for paint, wallcoverings and woodcare

AMA's latest market report forecasts growth of 1 to 2 per cent by 2022.

AMA's latest market report forecasts growth of 1 to 2 per cent by 2022.

The market for paint, wallcoverings and woodcare products in the UK was worth an estimated GBP 925 mio in 2017. An upturn in the construction sector in 2014 stimulated demand for paint and wallcoverings and the market continued to grow to 2015. However, the market has been relatively flat since 2016, writes AMA Research in its latest "Paint, Wallcoverings & Woodcare Market Report - UK 2018-2022", which forecasts growth of 1 to 2 per cent by 2022.

The DIY multiples channel accounts for the largest share of the market, with large ranges of branded and un-branded or own brand products. However, trade centres have gained share benefiting from the growing trend to outsource decorating work to tradesmen, and the direct channel has benefited from growth in the non-domestic sector. Distribution routes are likely to be impacted by the structural changes currently occurring in the retail sector, with many distributors offering multi or omni-channel services, as well as the predicted growth in the 'click and collect' segment.
