[NOTE: the CPA would typically have our standard forecasts published by 15 August; however, the result of the EU Referendum vote in late June 2016 caused a structural change so that the data for the usual early indicators/drivers that we use to forecast are not currently available for the post-referendum period. We will instead have a central “scenario” for construction output by sector and sub-sector with upper and lower bounds (reflecting the degree of uncertainty.]
The CPA’s Construction Industry Forecasts provides analysis of the drivers of construction activity and forecasts for 29 industry sectors, including house building, roads, rail, schools and hospitals, over the next 5 years. Forecasts for all 29 sectors are published quarterly, accompanied by comprehensive written analysis in the Summer Edition and shorter update reports, focusing on what’s changed and the latest industry developments, in Spring, Autumn and Winter. The Detailed Forecast and Quarterly Updates include a breakdown of the forecasts in Excel.
