Sanitary industry is growing continuously

The sanitary, heating and air conditioning industry once again generated sales of EUR 42.9 bn last year.

This corresponds to an increase of 2.9 % compared to the previous year. For the tenth year in a row, the almost 51,000 companies were able to look forward to growing economic success.

The trade benefited from the continuing construction boom in Germany and the modernization business in bathrooms and heating systems.

Like other sectors, the trade is fighting against the shortage of skilled workers.In 2017, for example, almost every second company reported vacancies.
