Lightside DIY 2017

Summary

Lightside DIY will grow 0.3% in 2017, increasing at a lower rate than the total DIY market. Sluggish growth is driven by a decline in housing transactions, and a resultant lack of demand for minor DIY repairs connected with moving home. In addition, consumer confidence is also low versus 2016. Switches and sockets will be the fastest growing category to 2022, particularly after 2019 as confidence returns to the housing market. Adhesives will also grow strongly, aided by inflation and the “make do and mend” trend due to low consumer confidence.

Due to the fact that 25-44 year-olds are the most active in the housing market, it is of little surprise that this group has the highest lightside penetration. Furthermore, as this age group are digitally savvy, it is vital that retailers adopt a multichannel approach, including click and collect, in order to target this demographic. 77.6% of shoppers spend less than an hour researching a lightside purchase, indicating how important it is for retailers to carry a wide range of stock to facilitate research in-store.

Click and collect is also important due to the importance of convenience for consumers in choosing where to shop. Through click and collect and smaller stores Screwfix has positioned itself as a DIY specialist with a convenient proposition and has grown share.

With a 30.6% share of the market, B&Q is the largest lightside DIY retailer. However, B&Q’s share has declined, primarily due to the closure of 65 stores and competitor pressure. It is likely that the growing threat of Amazon, the store expansion plans of B&M and the rollout of the Bunnings store concept across the Homebase estate will lead to an even more competitive DIY marketplace to 2022.

Global Lighting Ballasts Market 2016-2020

In lighting system, the major role of a ballast is to regulate the current to the bulb or tube and provide necessary voltage to start the bulb and produce a steady light output. If the lighting source is connected directly to high-voltage power source, it will draw more current to the bulb or tube and will quickly burn out before its expected lifecycle. Therefore, ballast protects the lighting source from a high level of current and limits the flow of current through the lighting device, thereby extending the lifecycle of lighting systems. The analysts predict that by 2020, the global lighting ballasts market will exceed 872 million units. Covered in this report The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global lighting ballasts market for 2016-2020. To......
