UK Crane Market – Dynamics

The UK is facing a housing crisis, and the primary reason for the housing crisis is the low infrastructure investment in the housing sector.  Housing is unaffordable in many places for local people. The reasons for this include a shortage of land available for development, a lack of finance available for major infrastructure, low productivity growth in the construction sector, and insufficient market diversity. There is difference in demand and supply of houses in the UK and the demand surpasses the supply. Cities with the biggest housing shortages are primarily concentrated in the Greater Southeast of England, such as London and Brighton. The shortage of houses increases their prices, which makes them unaffordable for most of the population in the UK. Hence, people prefer to stay in rented and family houses, instead of having an independent house. Therefore, for increasing the supply of new houses, the government plans to build 300,000 new homes every year to match demand and make housing costs affordable from 2020. According to national housing, the government should invest USD 15.8 billion every year for the next decade to overcome these issues.

Key Drivers and Trends fueling Market Growth:

  • Rise in investments to support housing development
  • Healthcare infrastructure through the introduction of National Health Plan
  • Rise in demand for luffing tower cranes
  • Rise in demand for technology for communication and automation such as IOT, crane planner2.0, and Blokalert
