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, new work and RMI, as well as forecasts of new work and RMI activity to 2021.

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.

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 2021 for new work and RMI in each of the residential and non-residential sectors.

Into Q2 2017, the construction sector remains relatively upbeat but with an element of uncertainty surrounding the progress of the market in 2018-19. The consequences for construction has remained a key talking point, with the implications for the construction sector likely to become clearer as the UK begins the process of negotiating trade agreements. The residential sector remains positive on the whole with sales of new houses reported by leading national housebuilders as being "on target". This has been tempered by increasing concerns regarding affordability and the ability of some key consumer groups to be able to afford the increasing deposits needed in the face of continued rising
