Building Products Newsletter, August 2017

The UK construction sector has remained relatively resilient since Brexit, buoyed predominantly by a substantial pipeline of national infrastructure projects and a resurgence in house building. However, the widespread economic uncertainty is starting to take its toll, particularly in the commercial sector. This, allied with higher input cost inflation creates a backdrop of more challenging conditions going forward. Nonetheless, M&A volumes in the sector remain healthy and the increased emergence of international acquirers in 2017 points to a long-term positive belief in the prospects of the UK building products sector.

This newsletter is a periodic review of UK building products activity and trends in the sector.
