This report provides information on the sector environment of the Italian market of domestic taps: detailed data on the sector by segment, market trends and its main drivers, competitive forces and their impact on the market, future expectations, recent events and developments in terms of product, distribution channel, potential risks, regulatory framework.
The domestic taps sector operates in two main areas of business:
• taps, including:
• traditional and mixer taps;
• thermostatic mixer taps.
• showers, including
• fixed showers;
• handheld showers
For other products and accessories, such as shower columns, waste traps, shower hoses, etc., only the amounts relating to companies covered in this report are taken into consideration. This item also includes accessory bathroom furniture items manufactured and/ or sold by companies in the sector that have been offering complete, co-ordinated product lines for a number of years.
This report does not consider the manufacture on behalf of third parties of tap and shower components (cartridges, washers, shower poles, etc.).
The main customers of companies specialising in handheld showers are tap manufacturers. This therefore means that the calculation of overall production and the value of the market is affected by a certain degree of overlap.
Databank’s methodology for Competitors reports begins with a careful screening to identify the main organisations that are representative of a given sector. Several one-to-one interviews are then conducted with the selected organisations. Questionnaires are sent to all the leading companies on an annual basis. The information collected is then verified by an expert in the particular sector using a system of counterchecks to guarantee that the information is entirely reliable and consistent. The process is then completed using Cerved Group’s proprietary information about Italian enterprises. All Competitors reports also include details concerning the strategies and performances of the leading companies in each sector.
