The full impact of Covid-19 on the UK economy is expected to spell uncertainty for the construction industry according to the Construction Products Association’s (CPA) latest forecasting, despite the government putting the industry at the front and centre of its recovery plans. Potential structural changes to the UK economy brought on by the pandemic, as well as uncertainty around consumer confidence and unemployment rates, could prove significant to construction activity returning to pre-Covid growth rates.
Total construction output in Great Britain is expected to fall by 25% during 2020, according to the Construction Products Association. The anticipated decline in output is one of three scenarios for construction output examined by the CPA. Even under this most optimistic of scenarios, the country’s construction activity would suffer its sharpest fall ever recorded. The pause to construction work as a result of Covid-19 social distancing measures is the main cause of the fall, with 60% of planned construction output lost in April due to the measures.
