Improving Supply and Capacity
In the last 25 years the pace of global investment has accelerated at an unprecedented rate and is reshaping the international economic landscape. In construction, many firms conduct business on a multi-national scale and, as a result, have a choice over where they invest. The key challenge facing the industry is to ensure that the UK is the favoured location for global firms to invest.
In 2014 the Construction Products Association published studies on industry capacity and investment. The studies form a series of projects that the Construction Products Association is contributing to support Construction 2025: Industrial Strategy for Construction.
The first study looks at the ability of UK construction product manufacturing to meet the forecast demand. The second study focusses on the economic, political and regulatory landscape facing the industry, and suggests how industry and government can work better together to develop policies that give greater certainty and confidence to industry to encourage investment, innovation and growth.
