the plumbing market

Update 21/01/2020


1.1 Market definition and scope

The hydraulics sector is a sub-segment of the construction or engineering market, and includes all activities used for the circulation of fluids, using in particular water pipes.

The hydraulics market can be divided into two types of players:

- Companies

- Private

The plumber is intended to work in particular on new buildings, in order to install pipes, and in the context of renovation or maintenance, such as a bathroom. 

The sector is dominated by small businesses, and has experienced some difficulties before 2016, but since has benefited from a slight recovery in activity, which should continue during 2019, helped in particular by the fight against illegal employment and government aid for renovations, which should encourage private individuals. 

The study will cover the plumbing sector, while at times referring to heating and HVAC engineering, two activities that plumbers often perform.
