Construction in the United Kingdom (UK) - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q1 2021)

The UK construction industry has been severely impacted due to the disruption caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the subsequent lockdown measures. Industry output declined by 13.6% in real terms in 2020, while output contracted by 2.8% year on year (YoY) in the fourth quarter of 2020, which was preceded by declines of 8.8% in Q3, 35% in Q2 and 3.4% in Q1 2020.

The analyst expects the country’s construction industry to rebound and grow by 8% in 2021 and record an average growth of 2.5% between 2022 to 2025. The industry’s output will be supported by improving investor confidence and investments in transport, renewable energy, residential and commercial infrastructure projects. With the new support package of GBP4.6 billion (US$5.5 billion) released in January 2021 by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, businesses such as retail, hospitality and leisure will be supported until April 2021. The government is also focusing on the development of renewable energy projects, with an aim to produce offshore wind power capacity of 40GW by 2030, up from the present 10GW - this will help the country to meet its zero-carbon emissions target by 2050.

Over the remaining part of the forecast period, the industry’s output will also be supported by key investment projects, which include Highways England’s Road Investment Strategy 2 (RIS2), which started operating from April 2020, and will run until March 2025 with a total budget of GBP27.4 billion (US$32.7 billion), and the GBP40 billion (US$47.8 billion) investment program of Ofgem, the country’s energy regulator, to transform Britain’s gas and electricity transmission network over the next five years. The wider economic impact of COVID-19 disruption along with post-Brexit challenges are likely to weigh on the construction industry, particularly affecting industrial and commercial construction.
