Construction (Industrial Report) - UK - January 2014




The 2015 version of this report has just been released. Be the first to access the latest research on the construction industry - click here

The construction industry has a reputation for being highly cyclical, and generally the growth or decline tends to exaggerate specific GDP development. In the historic boom/bust years this was very evident, and while some argued that the cyclicality of the market subsequently declined, this only reflected the more even GDP development. Consequently the economic difficulties caused by the financial sector collapse had a marked impact on the output of the construction industry. In total the prospects for the construction industry are now very strong.

Certain sectors are significantly influenced by governmental policy with respect to public spending, and while this has, in the past, often not reflected economic activity, the recent economic turmoil has been of such magnitude that the government has been forced to reduce public expenditure irrespective of political policy.

The official 2013 data indicate that home ownership fell in that year to the lowest level since 1987, but still 65.3% (14.39 million) of households are made up of homeowners. In 1918 just 23% of households owned their home. However, the rapid increase in the cost of property in the runup to 2007, coupled with a subsequent reduction in the availability of credit, has priced millions of wouldbe buyers out of the market.

The definitions used in this report on the construction sector are those of the ONS (Office for National Statistics). The civil engineering sector has been excluded, but a detailed report on this sector is available separately from MBD (The UK Civil Engineering Market Development). There are a number of sectors that are defined within the construction sector comprising both publicly and privately financed projects.
