Plumbing services also takes up a large portion of maintenance work in Facilities Management Companies. The past 5 years have been challenging for the Plumbing Industry. Larger Plumbing businesses have managed to acquire installation contracts in commercial building projects while others have had to compete heavily on smaller construction projects. Revenue in the Plumbing services Industry in Australia is $14.0bn. (Kelly, Plumbing Services in Australia, 2017) The Plumbing services landscape is a mature industry which is heavily competitive and price sensitive.
