The year 2019 saw continuation of the market and economic events from 2018, which had a positive impact on the development of the installation and heating market. The economic situation favourable for investments intended to improve the air quality at the local level and the mood in the industry were a reflection of the sales increase, which started in the industry in the 2nd quarter of 2017, when significant sales increases were recorded in most product groups in the industry. Growth in consumption, as well as the ability to use EU funds coming from the Regional Operational Programmes, certainly influenced the situation in the installation and heating industry in 2019.
In 2019, total sales increases were no longer as drastic as in the preceding year, but the positive trend in most product groups prevailed, or even further significant growth was observable. According to the opinions collected in the market, the result could be even better if not for the noticeable employment problems – shore of specialists in workmanship and increases in the prices of certain building materials. Moreover, some of the companies active in the fitting and heating industry, with production plants in Poland, signalled the problem of workforce shortage, which restricted the possibility of increasing production of devices and systems.
