Trends Report
  • Industry confidence continues to increase. The growth in confidence appears to have been principally driven by a sustained uptick in UK-based orders.
  • Eight out of 10 suppliers reporting either stable or increasing UK orders in the past three months.
  • Staffing levels rose again this quarter, continuing a mini return-to-growth trend sustained since Q3 2016.
  • Consumers reported strong uptake of energy saving technology this quarter, with many of the leading technologies outperforming typical (four-quarter average) levels. In particular, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment saw very strong growth this quarter, followed by lighting and behaviour change as the standout performers.
  • Project spending remained relatively strong versus the long-term trend, but dipped slightly against the previous quarter. This dip appeared to be driven mainly by a reduction in large projects (£500k+) and growth in smaller value projects (£50-£100k).
