Introduction and Overview

The 'Construction and Housing Forecast Bulletin - GB' is published four times a year. The bulletin provides analysis of the overall construction market in current prices, in terms of new work and RMI activity, also public and private sectors and detailed reviews of the two main sectors with sub-sector analysis for quarterly output and new orders, housing starts and completions, as well as forecasts to 2022.

Issue 40, updated in May 2018, is available now. 

Each issue covers:

  • Recent and current trends in the construction industry in Great Britain
  • Changes in output overall and by residential and non-residential sectors.
  • Revised forecasts based on the latest statistics and information available
  • Key influencing factors: GDP growth, inflation, interest rates etc.
  • Impact of government strategy and review.
  • Forecasts to 2022 for new work and RMI in each of the residential and non-residential sectors.

Data sources used in the compilation of this report include government statistics, existing published data, websites, trade magazines, etc, while a range of interviews with construction product suppliers, distributors, etc has also contributed to the development of the report. In addition, our research background in construction and related sectors has been used to provide an understanding of the market and key factors that could influence trends and forecasts for the construction industry.

Issue 40 includes:

This issue of the bulletin includes revised data for 2016 as well as preliminary data for the full year 2017 for output and new orders for total GB construction, as well as the residential and non-residential sectors, though this may be subject to revision in the medium term.

Revised data indicates that total construction output increased by 8% in 2017 compared with 2016, to reach a total value of £163.5bn. In terms of value, new work accounts for the largest share, with output growth having been particularly strong in the residential new work segment, which saw growth of 11% in the year. RMI output has also been stronger in the residential than in the non-residential sector. Overall RMI output increased by 7% in 2017. Overall growth in construction output is forecast to reduce to around 2% for 2017-18, but improving to 3% for 2019-22. This more modest forecast takes into account the continuing uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process affecting the timing of business investment decisions.

  • Revised figures for the full year 2016 & preliminary for 2017 - construction output (new work and RMI) and new orders.
  • Sector performance since 2013 with detailed analysis of output and new orders.
  • Forecasts to 2022 in the residential and the non-residential sub-sectors, including the potential impact of Brexit on construction activity.
  • Output mix by new work and RMI.
  • 56 pages of analysis and informed reporting with 41 tables and charts.
