The report offers a comprehensive review of the UK wall cladding industry and assesses developments within the overall market as well as the individual sub-sectors. Aspects examined include market size, trends & influences, market prospects, major suppliers, and key distribution channels.

The report focuses on wall cladding products that are typically fixed or applied to the main loadbearing elements of a building.

Products covered include:
• Facing bricks
• Rainscreens
• External wall insulation (EWI) & renders
• Curtain wall systems
• Cast stone panels
• Other products such as timber cladding and pre-cast concrete panels

Demand for wall cladding products is subject to fluctuations in UK construction activity, in particular housebuilding and non-residential new work. Until recently, trends have been positive, especially in the period immediately following the pandemic. This was largely attributed to efforts to resolve the UK’s shortage of housing, driving up demand for building materials such as facing bricks. However, market prospects have deteriorated since 2022, due to factors such as the uncertain economic climate, shortage in construction skills, disruptions in the supply chain, and the rising cost of materials.

The UK wall cladding market has also been affected by changing legislation and regulatory requirements, in particularly the shift to sustainability and the growing demand for new and environmentally friendly construction methods and materials.

The UK wall cladding market is expected to remain flat in 2024 and be supported primarily by RMI activity. The market is then forecast to return to steady growth in 2025 to the end of the forecast period. Although demand is highly influenced by construction output, the market is also expected to be sustained by technological innovations, sustainability trends and the adoption of modern methods of construction to meet the UK’s growing housing demand.
