The ‘conservatory’ market is estimated to be worth in excess of £600M and it has been getting ever stronger since 2012.
The conservatory product range is getting more and more sophisticated every day. The market offers more choices for an individualised project – options now include traditional conservatories, orangeries, glazed extensions that might have a solid or a glass roof, verandas, loggias and a number of other options. Recent stability in the economy in general – and particularly the housing market – and the historically low interest rates have helped strengthen increased consumer confidence and spending on higher value home improvements.
Key product features that have become more important in the conservatory market include bifold opening doors , coloured frames, high specification self-cleaning glass as well as improved thermal efficiency. Considerable product development is taking place in the conservatory market; with companies offering wider ranges for an increasing demanding customer base as homeowners look for a more bespoke service. Especially the improvements in the technology and house moving market will continue the increase in conservatory features.
Conservatories are currently popular design features, housing anything from kitchens to reading rooms.
In terms of frame materials, PVCu continues to be the dominant option, but timber has been gaining a significant share recently. Due to its sustainability credentials and natural appearance, timber conservatories retain their attraction for many homeowners. Aluminium retained a niche share in the domestic market even though it remains a comparatively more expensive option.
Sustained growth in the UK economy, increased disposable incomes and consumer confidence will increase the demand for conservatories; especially in the South of England.
