- The growth of heavyside DIY is set to stall in 2017, with sales flat versus 2016, making the category the worst-performing of all the DIY segments. Economic uncertainty following the EU referendum and resultant low consumer confidence, as outlined in GlobalData's own tracker, is causing consumers to postpone major home renovations involving heavyside products.
- The penetration of online within the heavyside market is higher than the total DIY category, at 12.7%. Online is a popular channel due to the commodity nature of many heavyside products, which differ very little and so therefore do not require instore inspection.

Online is also popular due to the substantial bulk and weight of most heavyside products, which makes it preferable for consumers to purchase online and have the products delivered directly to their home.
- Convenience is ranked above price as the number-one driver of retailer choice among consumers. With convenience overtaking price when choosing a retailer and online gaining traction, not only do retailers need to compete on price alone but must also offer a convenient, multi-channel approach to win in the category.
