Deal activity in the UK Construction sector

Construction sector deal activity remained strong in 2021, with deal volumes exceeding 2019 levels, despite the impact of the Pandemic on the Construction sector.

Acquirers with a keen eye on buying Construction companies drove dealmaking, even against a backdrop of product shortages, supply chain issues and raw materials price increases.

EvolutionCBS is currently working with the owners of 6 companies in the sector who are looking for a full or partial sale, and we are seeing significant interest.

Consequently, we analysed deal activity in the sector, specifically involving the sale of privately owned UK businesses across the last 3 years.

Following a strong Q.1 2020, the impact of lockdown on Q.2 was tangible, with only 2 deals announced in the period. However, activity picked up again in Q3 by a whopping 850% and by Q4 had surpassed the previous year.











In line with previous years, the majority of buyers were UK businesses, followed by Europe and the USA.











Looking at 2022 and 2023, leading industry consultants, Glenigan forecasts growth in all subsectors, with notable rises in Hotels & Leisure, Industrials and Housing projects.

Moving forward, there is good reason for owners and shareholders of Construction sector companies to feel particularly bullish, particularly as the strength of the market will be reflected in a vibrant deal market.
