Statistics on the construction industry, including value of output, new orders by sector, number of firms and total employment, insolvencies and construction Output Price Indices.

Main points
  • The value of construction new work in current prices in Great Britain in 2021 experienced strong growth (15.3%) to £115,579 million, after a 15.9% fall to £100,199 million in 2020, as the impact of the recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic took hold; there were similar strong percentage increases in both private and public new work.
  • Construction new orders rose 30.5% in 2021 to £72,578 million, recovering to the highest level in over 45 years, driven by private industrial, private housing and private commercial; the only sector with negative growth was infrastructure, with the notable negative growth in electricity and roads partially offset by railways.
  • In 2021, 353,365 Value Added Tax (VAT) and Pay As You Earn (PAYE) registered firms were operating in the construction industry in Great Britain, a 3.2% growth compared with 2020; pandemic-related administrative lags in deregistering and closing firms may have occurred and be recorded in 2021.
  • The number of construction-related employees (excluding self-employment) in Great Britain remained broadly unchanged in the third quarter of 2021 compared with 2020, totalling 1.4 million workers; the number of self-employed workers fell 3.7% in 2021, while total construction employment in VAT and PAYE registered businesses remained at 2.15 million workers in 2021.
  • The construction industry saw a 25.7% annual increase in the number of recorded company insolvencies in 2021.
  • The all-work construction Output Price Index saw strong annual price growth of 5.9% in November 2021; there was consistent price growth across all sub-sectors throughout the year.
