PARIS, March 23rd, 2012 - With a progression of the turnover of the companies of installation of integrated kitchens of 8%, this field largely progressed these last years. However, the prospect seems to be less good for 2012 in particular with the rises in the price of materials as well as budgetary measurements of the government.
The integrated kitchen is truly the engine of the sector of interior installation. A sector in growth of 2,5% according to the Xerfi cabinet, after a sectoral study, mainly thorough by the installation of the kitchens.
The companies of the sector also benefit from a good health of the real estate in France in 2011, encouraged by the installation of official measurements in favor of the households. Thus, over all the year, the sales of the specialists in kitchen integrated increased by 6,6%.
A rise which according to the annual study of the IPEA is explained by the delay of equipment of French like to the return to the furnaces. A vitality which thus comes booster rocket the figures from the sector of installation where French industrialists share the market shares. The first manufacturer of kitchens in France, the SALM (Alsatian Company of Pieces of furniture) thus saw his turnover taking 11% in less than one year being established to 370 million euros.
Wait-and-see policy of the market in 2012
For 2012, the operators of the sector are still in the expectancy. Indeed, vis-a-vis the context of crisis, the government removed principal helps in favor of the real estate which had improved the figures of the sector of the installation of interior.
The industrialists remain of this fact careful as for the evolution of the prospect for the sector. For the SALM, the progression should be satisfied with simple a 6%, by opening 40 stores in France as well as about fifteen with the international one.
Cabinet XERFI as for him provides that interior installation will increase only by 3% this year. Figures which will oblige the industrialists to diversify their offers but also to meet to face an increasingly competing sector.
