Abstract:

The decision to leave the EU prompted us to revise our growth forecasts for the UK s construction industry for --------- downwards. We forecast - y-o-y real growth in ----, falling to just -.- in ----.Economic hardship felt by households from slower GDP growth and rising unemployment will inform decisions to delay or scale back investment in the residential and non-residential building sectors. ...The decision to leave the EU prompted us to revise our growth forecasts for the UK s construction industry for --------- downwards. We forecast - y-o-y real growth in ----, falling to just -.- in ----.Economic hardship felt by households from slower GDP growth and rising unemployment will inform decisions to delay or scale back investment in the residential and non-residential building sectors. Infrastructure will remain an attractive segment and we have not yet altered our forecasts, but pressure on government budgets and spending priorities and investor caution could threaten project implementation. ...Our downside forecast scenario sees a protracted and more severe period of economic weakness, which would erode the fundamentally strong demand story in the residential building sector and reduce the appeal infrastructure assets in the UK to private sector investors. Furthermore it would see government revenues fall and spending revisions would need to be made.

...Our core scenario following the Brexit vote now sees growth in the UK construction sector slowing to - in ---- and -.- in ----. The non-residential building sector is highly likely be the hardest hit following the Brexit vote, in particular commercial and industrial real estate. ...The non-residential building sector is highly likely be the hardest hit following the Brexit vote, in particular commercial and industrial real estate. Should our upside scenario following the Brexit vote play out, we would expect the momentum gained from the quick transition of power within the Conservative party to the premiership of Theresa May, would be used to make decisions on major infrastructure projects and announce reforms to the house building sector to increase output. The core of our downside scenario following the Brexit vote, is an extended period of economic contraction. We have cut our GDP forecasts for the UK, but should the economy falter then it could undermine the fundamentally strong demand picture in the housing market. Furthermore, non-residential building would see an even greater pull back in investment and the attraction of UK infrastructure assets to private investors would be eroded.
