Building Products (Industrial Report) - UK - December 2014

“The building products market comprises a diverse range of products, virtually all of which are enjoying significantly improved conditions in 2014, following a trend that started to emerge in 2013. Future prospects are for strong growth with construction continuing to be at the forefront of overall UK economic development. However, with such a variety of markets served, prospects demonstrate strong variations between products.”
– Terry Leggett, Senior Analyst

This report addresses the following key questions concerning the building products market:

  • How have the various product sectors performed over the last five years?
  • How strongly will each of the markets develop over the next five years?
  • What are the drivers for market growth and how will these affect each of sector?
  • Which sectors are subject to material substitution, and how are these trends affecting the market?
  • How have companies involved in the market faired during the last five years?

This report covers the major product categories of building products.

The construction market is traditionally identified as a highly cyclical sector and trends generally exaggerate overall GDP changes. The economic decline that followed the recession furthered this trend, but equally as the economy started to improve in 2013 then so construction activity became increasingly buoyant. This has continued into 2014 with a very strong performance in many construction sectors.

Construction output growth varies significantly but has been at its strongest since 2013, with output rising sharply in the middle of that year. Despite a fall in the rate of growth in Q2 2014, which is partly believed to have resulted from a very strong performance in Q1, prospects for the sector remain good with measures such as Help To Buy boosting new build housing projects.

Certain sectors are also significantly influenced by government policy to public spending. While this has previously often not reflected economic activity and given sectors a cushion from overall development, the recent economic turmoil has been of such magnitude that the government has been forced to reduce public expenditure irrespective of political policy.
