The Construction Products Association acts as a single, influential voice for the manufacturers and suppliers of construction products.
The Association's aim is to build a growing, profitable and sustainable future for the construction products industry. In order to achieve these aims, the Association is focusing its activities in four specific areas:
1. Investing in the built environment
2. Creating a supportive business environment
3. Improving industry performance
4. Delivering sustainable construction
The construction products industry is at the heart of the UK economy, providing essential materials for our homes, schools, hospitals, factories, offices, roads and railways.
Every year the industry:
- has an output of £50 billion
- exports 10% of output
- 44% of total construction output
- 4.5% of the GDP
- 15% of the UK's manufacturing output
- over 500,000 people in almost 25,000 companies
The latest Construction Trade Survey, published today, shows that construction activity rose in Q1, the first time in six years that the industry has enjoyed four consecutive quarters of growth in activity
The Construction Products Association’s latest State of Trade Survey released today indicates that sales of construction products rose in Q1 and sales are expected to rise even further during Q2 and over the next 12 months.
The recovery underway across UK construction presents the right moment for industry and political parties to address persistent and serious challenges facing the entire supply chain.
The Construction Products Association welcomed the Chancellor’s 2014 Budget Statement which backs British manufacturers and builders.
