Modest forecast for the UK wall cladding market following Brexit decision

UK market for wall cladding has increased by around 18% in total between 2012 and 2015/16, driven by strong growth in new build and major refurbishment activity in key sectors, such as housebuilding, offices, schools & higher education, hotels & leisure, transport buildings and online retail warehousing. The range of cladding types is broad and the supply chain diversified and fragmented, and demand for the various cladding types tends to vary depending on the relative buoyancy of their main end-use markets.
Construction output in 2013 and 2014 was helped by the relatively good summer weather, with private housebuilding, social housing refurbishment, waste management infrastructure and the Central London office development sub-sector all showing solid growth. With improving levels of housebuilding output, driven largely by the Help to Buy scheme and a shift back from flats to houses, demand for facing bricks outpaced supply, with imports needed to make up the shortfalls. However, by 2015, UK brick deliveries improved, so driving up completions.
Energy efficiency legislation and initiatives (e.g. ECO) and requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations have driven up demand for cladding products and systems with higher energy efficiency properties e.g. render coated external wall insulation systems and composite panels. The wetter than average weather in the summer of 2015 did, however, appear to hold back the overall rate of growth in demand for bricks and certain other cladding products. Overall, the market has not grown significantly in volume terms since 2014.
Clay facing bricks constitute the largest product group, with demand recently having been driven up by increasing housing output. Other main types of cladding used on housing included cast stone, timber/weatherboarding and render on blockwork and EWI. Clay facing bricks are also used on non-domestic applications, but demand in key areas, in particular out-of-town retail new build, has constrained growth rates here.
In the commercial sector, the return to growth in office development and high end apartment blocks in key city locations has largely underpinned demand for curtain wall and rainscreen cladding systems. In the industrial sector steel and aluminium profiled and composite wall panels typically dominate demand for cladding, key areas of use being warehousing, out-of-town retail ‘sheds’, waste management and utilities facilities and factories. The impact of the recession on the retail and industrial sectors had reduced demand for metal cladding, but demand has recovered driven by increasing demand for online retail warehousing, data centres and energy-from-waste plants.
“Forecasts for lower growth from 2017 are mainly driven by uncertainty following the ‘Brexit’ referendum” said Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research. “Although modest annual growth levels are currently forecast to 2020, the medium-term outlook will be dependent upon the path taken to exit the EU and the type of trade and legislative deals formulated.”
Over the period ending March 2019, when Britain is scheduled to leave the EU, at the very least, the uncertainty created by the situation is likely to create more volatility in the construction market at large. As a result, our view is that demand for cladding will decline modestly during this time in volume terms. Our reasons for this view are due to lack of confidence among property investors and business owners, a weakening of Sterling against the Euro and the US dollar and endemic problems concerning skills shortages in key areas. Other factors that are expected to contribute towards slower growth include the cutting or ending of subsidies for certain products and development programmes. For example, the government’s Energy Company Obligation – to help with installing energy efficiency measures for the less well off – is to expire next April.

Smart heating controls drive growth in the UK central heating market

UK domestic central heating market is substantial, with an estimated total value of around £1.1bn at manufacturers’ prices in 2015. The market saw a notable increase in 2013, with demand in 2014 also reasonably positive, though performance has been more subdued in 2015/16, reflecting the withdrawal of the ECO scheme and the Green Deal, which has affected boiler sales in particular. However, the market has benefitted from the growth of smart heating controls in the past 2-3 years and demand from the housebuilding sector has continued to increase.
While the market is mature with central heating installed in around 92% of UK homes, growth potential still exists, particularly through smart heating innovation, used to improve energy efficiency and control. The UK domestic central heating market has also benefited in recent years from increasing health and safety regulations, revised building regulations and environmental legislation. This has stimulated product innovation and development in all sectors of the market.
The widespread introduction of smart heating controls has also supported demand, with all of the Big 6 energy companies having added a smart thermostat to their home energy management portfolio. UK householders are becoming much more environmentally aware and are looking towards smart heating solutions in order to minimise energy usage and to save money. Factors which have limited opportunities for growth include the continuing trend towards greater levels of property insulation, driven by further 2014 revisions to Part L of the Building Regulations, which have tended to reduce the overall heating load.
The boiler sector dominates the product mix with around 60% of sales, followed by radiators, conventional heating controls and circulator pumps, with smart heating controls accounting for a smaller but growing share. With central heating now being mature, the largest application area is refurbishment/replacement with around 80%, while new build and first time installations account for a relatively small share of the market. The majority of products are therefore distributed via trade channels such as merchants and electrical wholesalers. However, DIY multiples and online retailers are also important distribution channels, and an increasing amount of products are sold via energy companies and into OEMs.
Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research said: “The future performance of the UK domestic heating market will be influenced by overall trends in housebuilding, home improvement, fuel prices, energy efficiency legislation, renewable technologies, and technological developments. With the evolving trend towards smart IoT devices in the home, the development of smart heating controls will have a significant impact on the overall domestic central heating market.”
There also continues to be significant opportunities to upgrade existing boilers to the more fuel-efficient condensing models. Around 40% of all boilers installed in the UK are non-condensing models. However, there will still be many homeowners who will continue to demand more conventional solutions. Real benefits such as ease of use and convenience will continue to be the primary focus of many conventional heating controls suppliers.
The outlook for the UK domestic central heating market in late 2016 remains relatively flat, with an uncertain UK economy following the UK ‘Brexit’ vote. However, more steady growth is anticipated from 2018 onwards, driven by the replacement sector and the increasing concern regarding energy efficiency and energy costs etc. By 2020, it is estimated that the UK domestic central heating market will have increased by 14% in value terms, compared to 2016.

Irish construction sector set for highest rate of output growth in a decade

The Irish construction and housebuilding sector has now turned a corner after several years of decline, with renewed focus on recovery after a lengthy and deep recession. In 2016, the recovery in the Irish construction sector is set to accelerate and experience the highest rate of output growth in over a decade at around 20% to reach around €15.1bn. However, industry output levels are still only a fraction of those seen during the peak of 2007 when output reached over €38bn.
Current estimates suggest that total output in the Irish construction industry will continue to see growth throughout the period 2017-2020, albeit at a lower rate than experienced during 2014-16. In terms of regional construction output, the East and Midlands region (also known as Leinster) continues to have the largest share of the construction market, with over 8,000 projects at various stages of development.
The private non-residential sector, which includes all industrial, commercial, retail, agricultural, and hotel & leisure construction output, is now experiencing a strong recovery in development activity, and this is expected to continue in 2016, with activity levels increasing and output forecast to grow by over 23%. The Irish market is also benefiting from large scale FDI within the bio-pharma and data centre sectors and there are several large-scale bio-pharmaceutical, clean technology and data centre developments currently taking place across Ireland.
In 2015, the value of construction related investment associated with new social infrastructure construction projects also rose strongly, and increased public capital programme allocations for the period 2016 to 2021 will support an increase in overall output.
Both education and healthcare construction output is expected to benefit from investment under the Capital Plan 2016-2021, with a new €3.8bn School Building Programme to take place over the same period. The residential sector has been slow to recover from the economic and property downturn and, although annual housing completions are beginning to rise, there is now a very significant demand for housing in the major urban areas which is causing significant increases in rental costs, something which should stimulate housebuilding activity.
The Irish contracting industry is highly fragmented with a large number of small to medium sized companies, many of whom specialise in repair and maintenance activities and operate on a regional basis. Unlike the UK market, which is dominated by a dozen or so large, quoted companies with separate commercial, civil engineering and housebuilding operations, the Irish market is characterised by many smaller companies who operate across both residential and commercial sectors.
“The supply structure for the Irish housebuilding market is also highly fragmented with no more than one player having more than 2% of the market” said Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research. “Over the past 10 years, the structure of the industry has changed fundamentally, with the collapse of several of Ireland’s largest housebuilders and developers, and there are now just two publicly quoted housebuilders in Ireland.”
Overall output values are expected to increase by around 10% in 2017 and by 9-10% thereafter to until 2020. Into the medium-term, the return to growth is expected to be driven by the private commercial and residential sectors - supported by growing investment in social housing - and civil engineering activity. Output will also be supported by improving consumer and investor confidence as regional and global economic conditions improve.
Both the Irish construction and engineering industries have strong exposure to the UK market. Though the UK’s decision to leave the EU has caused uncertainty to the economic outlook, the full impact of ‘Brexit’ on the Irish economy and construction and housebuilding industries will take time to emerge. However, there may be a more positive impact on the Irish construction industry with opportunities for UK-based corporates and financial sector firms to relocate from the UK to elsewhere within the European single market.

6% growth achieved in the UK electrical accessories market last year

UK’s electrical accessories market is estimated to have grown by 6% in 2015, driven primarily by improvements in construction output. The growth rate in 2016 is forecast at a more modest 3%. Although the improving economic situation has led to a rise in construction output across most end use sectors, price competition in lower cost products and increasing levels of low cost imports impacted negatively on market value in 2013 and 2014, with just 1% growth achieved in each of those years.
The market is dominated by low voltage cable systems with value share of around 60%, followed by circuit protection accounting for around a quarter of the market, and wiring accessories with a smaller share in value terms. As the electrical accessories market is mature, the product mix has remained fairly stable in recent years.
Key influencing factors on the market include legislation on energy efficiency and carbon emissions, which has seen increased use of integrated systems spreading throughout domestic and commercial markets to provide greater control for heating, lighting and all electrical systems. Raw material prices also play an important role in the market performance for electrical accessories, with the price of cable in particular being highly dependent on copper prices. In addition, exchange rates can influence the market value substantially as many products are imported.
Supply within the electrical accessories market is dominated by a number of large multi-national organisations, which generally offer a wide range of products of which electrical accessories form a small part. The market also contains a number of smaller, electrical accessory focused companies specialising in a specific area of the market. Recent activity at supplier level has involved consolidation, rationalisation and cost reduction, along with research and development to exploit opportunities for value added products.
The distribution structure of the electrical accessories market is complex with a wide range of possible routes to market. However, electrical wholesalers are central to the distribution network and account for a large proportion of market distribution.
The electrical accessories market is a mature and sizeable one, therefore forecasts are for relatively slow and steady growth of 1-3% per annum until 2020, in line with relatively subdued forecasts for construction as a whole, following the UK's decision to leave the EU. The current focus on integrated solutions and systems within the electrical accessories market will continue to feed demand in the medium term, as well as an increased use of pre-fabricated and modular wiring assemblies that make installations easier and quicker. Energy efficiency regulations will also continue to influence the development of the market.
“In addition to the current uncertain state of the economy, pressure on pricing is likely to remain a feature of this market for some time” said Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research. “However, the weakness of Sterling has recently driven up the price of imported products and this has boosted the export market and may lead to higher demand for UK-manufactured products. Raw material costs will therefore continue to be a major influence on market value.”

Plumbers merchants market forecast to increase by 4% in 2016

The plumbers merchant market was worth an estimated £4bn in 2015, having recovered strongly in recent years. The market value declined during 2011/12, reaching a low point in 2012. From 2013 onwards, demand has increased leading to greater demand for plumbing materials, bathroom and shower products, and the plumbers’ merchants market is forecast to grow by around 4% in 2016.
Increasing demand has been due to the improving economic climate in general since 2013, with demand increasing for both new work and RMI activity. Output growth, which has been particularly strong during the past 2 years, was also experienced across most construction sub-sectors, including the housing and commercial sectors, such as offices, retail and entertainment and leisure.
However, price competition remains fierce and this may influence margins going forward. In order to differentiate themselves, some plumbers merchants have invested in improving the overall customer experience through enhanced service, such as extended opening times, greater availability of stock and heightened promotional activity. Many have also expanded their online presence, to ensure that they compete with rising internet sales. The growth of multi-channel merchanting, which combines physical premises with an online store, is forecast to continue.
Consolidation has been a feature of the marketplace in recent years, as nationals have acquired smaller regional operations in order to extend their reach and range of services. However, many regional and independent merchants have performed well, with some expanding their number of branches to improve their product offering and stock levels to meet local needs. This has been coupled with a focus on facilities which appeal to the public, not just the trade, such as bathroom and kitchen showrooms.
At present, the price of imported goods is increasing due to exchange rate fluctuations – something which will contribute to an uplift in market value in the short term. The issue is likely to affect a significant number of product sectors in the longer term.
It is extremely difficult to forecast the impact of the outcome of the EU Referendum on the economy going forward. Several economic forecasts suggest that the UK economy will start to slow, with business and consumer confidence affected, potentially with lower GDP growth in 2017 and 2018. The situation may improve after this, depending on the outcome of trade negotiations, both within and outside the EU, which have yet to take place.
“While there are indications of a slowdown in growth in the housing and commercial sectors from mid to late-2016, the plumbers’ merchants market is still forecast to increase by around 4% compared with 2015, with a further 2-3% per annum expected from 2017 onwards” said Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research. “However, the market value remains below levels seen in 2007.”
Going forward, the market value is likely to increase in the short term, boosted by price increases, however, the outlook is more uncertain for the longer term. A strong demand for housing and an undersupply of homes is likely to continue to be a key driver supporting the plumbers merchant market in the medium to long term.

Double digit growth anticipated in the UK pharmaceutical construction sector in 2016

The level of construction output in the pharmaceutical sector has grown strongly in recent years, with a focus of developments on high-value laboratories and cleanrooms. The market  is currently buoyant and showing double digit growth, with a further 13% growth anticipated for 2016. The UK is one of the largest pharmaceutical markets in the world, and the sector makes a greater contribution to the UK economy than any other industrial sector.
Though there has been some scaling-back of R&D budgets in the UK in recent years - due to issues such as slowing R&D pipelines, dwindling R&D and healthcare budgets, rising costs, impending ‘patent cliffs’, increased regulatory controls and increased pricing pressures - pharmaceutical manufacturing investment activity in the UK has been slowly increasing over the last couple of years. It appears confidence is strong in the market and this looks set to continue into 2016-17, despite the ongoing threat of global economic uncertainty and the more recent threat of the UK’s exit from the EU.
Although the volume of work has increased, tender opportunities are becoming increasingly competitive resulting in tighter margins and, despite renewed activity, many UK pharmaceutical producers are not significantly increasing levels of capital expenditure. However, the Government has announced a forward pipeline of over £1.9bn worth of capital projects in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors between now and 2020. In addition to these confirmed capital projects, significant expansion plans have been announced by some of the leading pharmaceutical companies, which should be of interest to construction companies and their supply chains operating in the pharmaceutical sector. A major trend in 2016 has also been a continued capital investment in science parks and university innovation campuses, with a focus on R&D, and enterprise zones.
In terms of construction costs, pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing facilities are among the most energy intensive and expensive of buildings and are also highly regulated in terms of design and function. Current design and construction trends are moving away from ‘bespoke’ buildings to flexible and mobile laboratories and cleanrooms requiring less time to design and build and incorporating modern methods of construction. The demand for mobile or modular cleanrooms is increasing, driven by industry cutbacks which have forced many pharmaceutical companies to rethink their business and manufacturing operations.
Increasing specialisation within the pharmaceutical industry has brought about varied opportunities for construction engineers and contractors to design and develop R&D facilities, pharmaceutical production processes, and assembly of drug delivery devices/systems, construction and maintenance of highly specialised production facilities, associated service/support facilities and continuous improvement of process operations.
The industry is expected to continue to show modest growth over the next few years, reflecting the positive factors and trends in the growing UK pharmaceutical industry, but also the economic uncertainty created by the UK’s vote to leave the EU, which will constrain growth somewhat. Forecasts are for annual growth of between 4-6% from 2018 onwards.
Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research said: “So far, the larger pharmaceuticals firms appear to have been largely unscathed by the UK vote to leave the EU – with a significant proportion of the sales of the major pharmaceutical companies generated overseas and a weaker pound likely to result in a significant rise in profits. However, Brexit has the potential to create significant issues for the UK life sciences industry as it may affect the regulation of medicines, EU clinical trials regulations, EU funding for research and access to R&D facilities, access to the single market and R&D workforce, and intellectual property.”

Forecasts indicate steady medium-term growth for the household textiles market

The UK market for household textiles is estimated to have grown by 3% in 2015, with similar growth forecast for 2016, according to a new report by AMA Research. Consumer confidence remained high in 2015, although market values have been negatively affected by high levels of competition and a proliferation of lower cost imports in this sector. The situation in late-2016 is uncertain, though underlying demand will come from replacement purchases, which in the household textiles market are significant.

Given the maturity of the household textiles market in the UK, sales are heavily reliant on replacement purchases. Daily wear and tear of sheets, towels, pillowcases and similar items, drives the need to replace them on a regular basis and helps underpin demand. Most items are relatively low value and therefore the market is not subject to the same degree of volatility experienced by higher value household products.

Bed linen dominates the household textiles product mix in 2016 with a share of around 40%, followed by filled products, bathroom textiles and then table linen/kitchen towelling, which accounts for a smaller share. Factors influencing the bed linen sector in recent years have included competitive pricing and year-round discounting, which have been compounded by increasing fragmentation and a growing online market. Lower prices have also shortened replacement cycles, encouraging householders to replace worn or damaged linens more often, but lower prices are also stimulating a switch to higher quality bedlinen as consumer tastes become increasingly influenced by exposure to higher quality bedding in hotels, for example.

Market growth in the filled products sector has been stimulated by higher demand levels from the hospitals and care homes sector as well as the hospitality sector. Sales of duvets have remained fairly strong, underpinned by continuing developments in filling materials, whilst steady demand from the contract sector has continued to drive sales of pillows. In addition, another important factor stimulating volume growth has been the extension of ranges within grocery multiples and also discount retailers, with the latter in particular offering filled products at competitive prices.

Bathroom Textiles is a substantial sector, now worth around £300m – sales growth has been steady and largely influenced by the same factors impacting on the wider market.

“Future prospects for the household textiles market are relatively positive, although given the potential for a significant shift in economic conditions; it is currently difficult to make any confident forecasts” said Andrew Hartley, Director of AMA Research“Current forecasts are for steady but moderate growth of around 2-3% in 2016, and 1-2% per annum in the medium term, reflecting not only the maturity of the market and the potentially challenging economic conditions, but also a continuing polarisation of the market.”

The post-Brexit market points to a number of potential concerns, not the least of which is a fall in consumer confidence and spending. Business confidence may also be affected, although the hospitality sector – a major user of household textile products and an important indicator of the health of the market – is expected to benefit from a weaker pound. On a more positive note, household textiles are relatively low-cost items and largely essential rather than luxury items, with some products, such as towels and bedlinen in particular, subject to high levels of wear and tear. While replacement cycles can be extended, the availability of a greater choice of affordable products on the market means that householders have the option of cheaper replacements, should economic circumstances dictate, but AMA are reasonably positive about the market in the next few years.
