“While the new construction market is growing, the major element of the market for plumbing products is the R&M market that is proving more sluggish despite many of the conditions remaining positive. Long-term fashion changes are also impacting the market such as the en suite trend and open-plan living. Domestic type products are also installed in some commercial applications, where market demand has become highly sector specific.”
