Our latest forecasts assess the implications for construction materials demand of the outlook for each segment of building and construction work. Demand for construction materials is mid-way through a large decline, caused by a downturn in residential building, exacerbated by falls in road construction demand, and a pause in infrastructure work generally, with a likely negative impact to also come from the interruption to supply chains from the coronavirus. The main area of strength at present is non-residential building, but this segment will begin to decline next year.
