We operate in attractive markets, with healthy and stable historic growth that is poised to benefit from future decarbonisation efforts.

Trends that are shaping our markets



The electrical industry undergoes frequent regulatory changes. These are often designed to improve safety or product efficiency and result in both the renewal of installations and increases in value of the electrical products used within the installation.

Our response

Our advantaged business model allows us to update our designs efficiently to meet these new regulations, manufacture the new product in our own facilities and bring the product to market more quickly and effectively than our competitors.



Consumers are increasingly demanding greater control and efficiency from their wiring devices and lighting, whilst installers are demanding technologies that simplify installation. This desire for increased functionality drives up product value.


Our response

We interact regularly with our consumers, installers and distributors to understand their emerging needs. We ensure these needs are reflected in new product designs.

built environment
