UK kitchen manufactured unit prices amongst lowest in Europe
According to official production figures gathered across the European Union under a standard harmonised industrial classification, UK kitchen manufacturers produced furniture at a lower unit cost (based upon sold values and volumes) than any other country (where data was available) apart from Greece.
Although there is a 2011 survey it is still to be finalised so the figures we have taken relate to the median values calculated over the two year period 2009 and 2010. In 2009/2010, the median unit value in the UK was €48.67 (2010/2011 €52.10) – see graph below. There is no analysis of the materials used in manufacture – Board or Solids for example – although this will no doubt have an impact on the results.
