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