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.
Output for Britain’s construction industry is expected to be less than previously forecast over the next three years given concerns around government’s ability to deliver on major infrastructure projects. The Construction Products Association’s (CPA) Summer Forecasts for 2019-2021 anticipates a 0.3% decline in total construction output for 2019, in line with previous projections, but the forecasts for 2020 and 2021 have been revised down to 1.0% and 1.4% from 1.4% and 1.7% respectively since the Spring.
