Report Summary

The outsourced, bundled Facilities Management market in central and local government was estimated to have grown by around 3% in 2015, compared to the market value in 2014. Having experienced good growth through to 2011 reflecting the move towards greater levels of outsourcing of a wider range of services and a high level of investment in facilities, the market declined in 2012 as government spending fell and the central and local government estate underwent consolidation in order to manage national debt and improve carbon emissions. This slow growth continued into 2014.

Factors supporting the market include increasing penetration within central and local government, a move towards a greater array of services being outsourced, and the need for government departments to achieve significant cost savings to meet tighter budget restraints, with the government encouraging greater use of the private sector partners to help achieve this. Nevertheless there remain sustained pressure on margins, reflecting consolidation in the market and greater numbers of larger FM contractors who are intent on ensuring they win enough business to fill their capacity. In addition the Government's ongoing activity to reduce the size of their Estate has continued to impact on contract opportunities both in the central Government sector and the local Government sector.

Social housing remains the largest end-use sector, accounting for around 44% of market value, followed by central government, with local government the smallest sector in this market. Service development is currently focused on niche areas such as energy management and sustainability as well as diversification into wider back office areas outside the scope of this report. These services tend to be high cost, although they will provide long term savings and strict government targets on cost, carbon reduction commitments etc. encourage development in this area.

The market for FM in the central and local government sectors is expected to improve and grow by 3% in 2015 and remain positive through to 2019. This will be driven by improvement in the social housing sector, as housing associations and local authorities intend to improve their operational efficiencies and as decent home standards need to be maintained. There are also expected inflationary pressures from the introduction of a compulsory Living Wage in 2016, perhaps squeezing the contractor margins, particularly in the public sector where budgets remain under pressure. However, public sector cuts continue with cross-collaboration across departments and/or regions, also collaboration between central and local departments likely to impact on opportunities for FM contracting in this sector.
