The L.E.K. European Contractor Survey reveals how tradespeople in the building and construction sector across the UK and Europe are sourcing the tools, products and materials they need. The survey findings point to key issues to help building product manufacturers, merchants and distributors to understand changes in their market, and to develop strategies to make the most of the new opportunities they present.
Several important key insights were uncovered within the survey results:
Survey data shows that building contractors undertake extensive research before most of their purchases, particularly for heavy materials, hand tools and fit-out.
Younger demographics are more likely to use mobile websites and apps for research.
Online and mobile shopping in the construction industry is here to stay.
Amazon’s presence is rapidly accelerating in building and construction.
