Do you have any national sales figures for the uk and breakdowns by product – carpets, wood, laminate, LVT, etc.?

Good Day,

Thank you for submitting your question.

In our database, there is one main report about construction materials sales in the UK that may answer your question.  

Report 1: Monthly Statistics of Building Materials and Components, UK Government, December 2015.

This report depicts charts that break down the top 5 UK exported and imported construction materials in 2014 in millions of pounds. The materials used in these charts are sawn wood >6mm think, central heating boilers, paints/varnishes, electrical wires, plugs/sockets, lamps/fittings and air conditioning equipment. This report is produced and updated monthly.

Report 2: Monthly Statistics of Building Materials and Components, UK Government, May 2015.

In the May 2015 report, there is a graph depicting an index of the seasonally adjusted and unseasonally adjusted sales of sand, gravel and ready-mixed concrete from 2007 until 2015.

“Seasonally adjusted sales of sand and gravel have declined since the recession reaching their lowest value in 2014Q1. Since then, sales have recovered slightly.”

This report also shows the non-seasonally adjusted deliveries and production of bricks between April 2012 and April 2015 in millions.

Report 3: Timber Trade Federation:  Wood Products in the UK, November 2015.

In 2013, the volume of plywood declared was a little over 0.5 million m3 (mainly due to untimely reporting to TTF) and this rose to around 1.2 million m3 in 2014. A large proportion of this extra volume that was reported in 2014 was sourced from China.

I hope you find this useful, and can see that there is a lot of useful information available through the portal about the construction industry. If you have any additional needs or questions about our reports, please feel free to contact us.
