Monitoring the marketplace

The builders merchant press recently reported on the latest figures from the Plumbing & Heating Merchant Index.

The signs of recovery continue with year-to-date sales up 26.1% in January to April 2021 compared to the same four months last year, with one less trading day.

The report published in June shows that value sales through specialist plumbing & heating merchants’ in April were up 192.4.% on April 2020, with merchants selling almost three times as much as the previous year. The signs of recovery continue with year-to-date sales up 26.1% in January to April 2021 compared to the same four months last year, with one less trading day.


However, with many merchant branches closed last April because of the pandemic, comparisons between 2021 and 2020 are less meaningful.


Build PR regularly monitors PHMI and BMBI reports and recommends them to all suppliers into the merchant supply chain. https://www.bmbi.co.uk/
