AMA forecasts for 2018 an annual growth rate of around 1 to 2 per cent.

AMA forecasts for 2018 an annual growth rate of around 1 to 2 per cent.

Having experienced overall growth of 13 per cent between 2013 and 2017, the UK household textiles market has been underpinned by returning consumer confidence and sustained demand from contract applications. According to AMA Research, the outlook for 2018 is for a slowing in annual growth rate to around 1 to 2 per cent reflecting growing pressures on consumer spending and fierce price competition which is constraining overall value growth, despite rising import prices. Both mature and highly competitive with high household penetration levels, the market remains highly dependent upon replacement sales, in domestic and contract end-use sectors.
