The UK’s sales of construction products have continued to grow in the third quarter (Q3) of 2014, according to the latest Construction Products Association’s State of Trade Service report.

It has also anticipated domestic sales growth over the following quarter, along with the next year.

Dr Noble Francis, Economics Director at the Construction Products Association, said: “The latest results highlight the strength of the UK economy in Q3, with private sector construction and manufacturing both benefitting. A rise in third quarter sales was reported by 78% of heavy side firms and 50% of light side firms compared with the previous quarter, and all firms reported a rise in sales compared with 12 months ago.”

He also added: “Growth in construction products has become more sustainable and manufacturers are optimistic going forward. Rising sales in the coming years are anticipated by 72% of heavy side product manufacturers and 90% of light side product manufacturers.”

The economical good news continued when, more recently, an autumn forecast predicted that the construction industry would grow 23% by the end of 2018. According to the forecast, the industry will contribute a massive £12 billion to the UK economy over the next two years alone.
