Market Assessment

The purpose of this report is to provide a comprehensive assessment of the UK construction industry, its performance and its skill needs for the future. It covers all areas of the industry (including construction

contracting and professional work) in both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The assessment is designed to inform the plan produced by ConstructionSkills, the new partnership between CITB Great Britain, CITB Northern Ireland and the Construction Industry Council, for future workforce development. The plan is called the Business Proposition.

This assessment focuses on market pressures and performance issues faced by the construction industry, and the skills it needs to meet these demands. The report concludes with a summary of the main themes and a note about information gaps and areas for future research. Key charts and tables are provided in Appendix A and Appendix B respectively.
