Demand for removal services is highly dependent on activity in the residential and commercial property markets, and customers' willingness to spend on the range of extras that specialist removal firms offer. The industry has been recovering lost ground in recent years and revenue is expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 6.3% over the five years through 2015-16. The industry is forecast to generate revenue of just over £1 billion in the current year, an increase of 2.1% on the previous year. Since operators rely on using the road, relatively high fuel prices over the period have negatively affected industry players.
