Construction Outlook 2018 – 2020

Our regularly produced Construction Forecast provides an outlook on the overall construction market and identifies the forecast growth rates in individual sectors such as private housing, infrastructure, commercial and repairs and maintenance. The forecasts are provided in constant prices in order to remove any inflationary effects and so represent real changes in market volume. We use a mix of the following market forecasting techniques: causal, qualitative and time series. Historical output and new orders data is provided by the ONS.

The construction outlook report contains market forecasts for 2018 – 2020 for each of the following construction industry sectors:

  • Housing – public
  • Housing – private
  • Infrastructure (eg transport, energy, utilities)
  • Public (eg education, health)
  • Industrial (eg warehouses, manufacturing)
  • Commercial (eg offices, retail, leisure)
  • Repair & Maintenance housing – public
  • Repair & Maintenance housing – private
  • Repair & Maintenance – non housing sector.

Note that the sectors listed in brackets are to provide examples of what is contained in that sector – individual forecasts are only provided for the 9 main sectors.
