2020 will prove to be a very testing and difficult time for businesses across the globe. With its intrinsic links to infrastructure and construction, we believe that when market recovery comes, the Building Products & Services sector has cause to be optimistic of emerging stronger than before.

This year’s publication opens with a review of the specific current challenges faced by businesses in the Building Products & Services sector, including a summary of market outlook, contributed by the CPA. We suggest some steps that leaders can take to build business model resilience and highlight the key industry themes, drivers and challenges that will continue to shape the sector.

We also explore key trends in the M&A market, analysing over 4,200 transactions completed in the last seven years and examine the outlook for M&A, including commentary from industry leaders.

Against an unprecedented backdrop, it is more important than ever to count on quality advice. Our global Building Products & Services M&A team has been one of the most active advisory houses in the sector having completed more than 60 M&A deals in the last 3 years. We have extensive coverage in key capital markets, access to private equity and work closely with owner managed businesses. We see many reasons for optimism in the sector, and expect M&A activity levels to rebound towards the end of the year and into 2021. Please get in touch should you wish to discuss any of the topics raised or would like to discuss your strategic options.
