UK Construction Industry 2015 Demand, Size, Share, Forecast to 2019


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/08/2015 -- Synopsis

The UK construction industry is expected to perform relatively strongly over the forecast period (2015–2019), expanding at an average annual rate of 4.19% in real terms. This marks a clear improvement from the average annual expansion of 0.45% recorded during the review period (2010–2014). Construction activities in the public sector have been impacted severely due to the implementation of austerity measures since 2011. However, industry growth is expected to pick up over the forecast period, in part owing to investments under the National Infrastructure Plan 2014. Moreover, after months of fretting over the potential for a messy coalition and ensuing policy paralysis, the UK's construction industry is now looking forward to a period of policy continuity following the Conservative Party's success in the general election in May 2015.

Key Highlights

- Under the Road Investment Strategy (RIS), the government aims to invest GBP15.2 billion (US$25.0 billion) into the country's strategic road network (SRN) between 2015–2016 and 2020–2021. SRN accounts for only 2% of the total road network, while it carries one third of the overall road traffic and two thirds of freight traffic. As the country's population and GDP are expected to grow further, traffic on SRN is expected to increase. Owing to this, the road infrastructure category is expected to grow over the forecast period.

- As a part of National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) 2014, the government has proposed a five year (2014–2019) network rail control program, valuing GBP38 billion (US$62.2 billion), in order to transform the country's rail network. Through this plan, the government aims to improve the capacity and connectivity of the railway network across the UK. Furthermore, the government has also committed towards investing in the country's two major rail projects: High Speed 2, which will connect eight out of the 10 largest cities in Britain; and Crossrail, which provides a direct link between London's major employment centers, such as Heathrow, the West End, Paddington and Canary Wharf. This will support the growth of the rail infrastructure category over the forecast period.

- In order to replace old and dilapidated school buildings, the government introduced its first Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) in 2011, valuing GBP2.4 billion (US$3.8 billion). Through this program, the government will reconstruct 261 school buildings across England that are in the worst conditions by 2017.

- Factors such as improved business confidence, the flourishing tourism industry and the government's proposal to relax visa rules for Chinese tourists are expected to drive investment in the leisure and hospitality category over the forecast period. Moreover, a change in consumers' preference to avail accommodation at affordable prices in the UK's best locations increases competition among budget and international brand hotels. Therefore to remain competitive in the market, hotel owners are designing hotel structures in innovative ways in order to attract customers. In 2013, Premier Inn, a budget hotel chain, announced its plan to construct 180 hotels in the country by 2018.
