What you need to know

The house building industry continued to grow in 2018 despite some unfavourable market conditions; including Brexit headwinds, continued public sector constraints and a sluggish London and South East market.

Nonetheless, the value of the market continued its impressive trajectory, driven by ongoing undersupply, the continued popularity of help-to-buy schemes and further inflation across pricing. Accordingly, demand continues to be secure opportunities for lucrative profits, with the scope of house builders broadening to more northerly regions in recent years.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Marco Amasanti, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

The UK house building market maintained strong growth in 2018, rising 7.7% in value despite Brexit headwinds, inflation and continued pressure on the public sector. Growth remains underpinned by the private sector, which further benefitted from the Help to Buy scheme in the past year. The extension of this scheme beyond 2021, and the manner of Brexit negotiations in 2019, are central to the future of the industry over the next decade. Marco Amasanti
