The Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning Installation industry typically accounts for approximately 15% of specialised construction trade activities. Industry contractors install and repair boilers, central heating, air conditioning systems and drainage systems. These services are primarily conducted in building markets. As a result, a slump in housing construction and commercial building construction during the depths of the severe economic downturn affected demand for industry operators. Various construction projects were scaled back or put on hold because building firms faced weak demand and tough financing conditions.
Operators in this industry install plumbing, central heating and air conditioning for households and businesses. The industry does not include the installation of electric baseboard heating.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
