On 14th September I was a guest at the latest Stelrad Radiator group Editors Event held this year at Epsom Downs racecourse where Stelrad were the sponsors of a key race. Chris Harvey, Head Of Marketing at Stelrad, the top UK radiator brand, gave a useful summary of UK Radiator Trends – here are some highlights.

UK Radiator Trends

The UK radiator market can be divided into two main sectors – Contract and One Off

  • In 2016, One Off – replacement radiators sold into Private households – represented 62.6% of all radiator sales
  • The Contract market represented 37.4% of volume and consists of Private New Build, Social Housing New Build Social Housing RMI, Energy Companies and Commercial sectors

Steel Panel radiator volumes fell by 0.9% in 2016

  • All volume losses were in the Social Housing segment of the Contract Sector, now forecast to stabilise to essential replacement
