Growth Decelerates in the Commercial Glazing Market as Commercial Construction Slows

Commercial Glazing Market Report – UK 2017-2021 Analysis – Report by AMA

Following good growth in 2015-16, the UK market for commercial glazing has been less buoyant in 2017 as the private commercial sector reacted to the climate of uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process.   This resulted in only marginal growth, at best, for 2017.   The commercial glazing sector is particularly reliant on the offices and retail sectors which have both seen reductions in new order values in 2016-17 as expansion and investment plans for some organisations have been deferred.   Current forecasts indicate .....

Facilities Management Outsourcing - Health & Education Market Report – UK 2018-2022 – Report by AMA

The UK Health and Education Facilities Management Market Declined by 2% in 2017

Facilities Management Outsourcing - Health & Education Market Report – UK 2018-2022 – Report by AMA

Over the last few years, the potential for growth in facilities management (FM) outsourcing within the healthcare and education sectors has been limited, largely due to factors such as political and economic uncertainty, cuts in public sector budgets and closure of a number of facilities.   Growth within the market for outsourced integrated services and TFM in health and education has therefore been on the modest side. In 2017, the market was estimated to be worth £3.2bn – around 2% lower than in the previous year.

FM market growth has also been hampered by a decline in the number of large-scale projects undertaken. Although healthcare and education represent two of the largest Government departments in terms of PFI/PF2 activity, the number of schemes .....
