        Construction Output Recovers, but Input Cost Inflation At Record High

        Featured Image

        In March of this year, figures revealed that construction output grew by 6%, back to pre-pandemic levels. This comes as a welcome change for many in the industry, especially when compared with last year’s March figures which showed that activity had plummeted by a record 44%.

        The construction industry’s quick recovery from the pandemic, however, is largely overshadowed by the looming threat of inflation. In fact, it could make the quick recovery more of a curse than a blessing: demand and supply disparities mean that input cost inflation is now at a record high, following a steady seven month climb to the third-highest it has been since the IHS Markit/CIPS UK survey’s inception in 1997, surpassed only by April and May of last year, during the height of the pandemic.

        According to the survey results, steel, timber and transportation are the most affected materials. Aggregates, cement and concrete are also suffering the effects of inflation. The steel shortage is likely not helped by the fact that, earlier this week, the UK’s main steel supplier closed their order book due to extreme demand that outbalanced input. Whether manufacturers of other construction will follow suit, closing their order books to focus solely on backlogs until they can procure enough materials again, is yet to be seen. However, experts across the board have forecasted that the materials shortage is here to stay until at least Q2 of 2021.

        At RaiderVision, we want to hear about your thoughts and experiences regarding the construction materials shortage, as well as input inflation. For a chance to win a £200 Amazon gift voucher, we would appreciate you participating in our short market survey.

        With prices and lead times at record highs, it is more important than ever to protect your assets on site.
