UK construction - supply chain disruptions are far from over

06 December 2021

Paul Dally, Partner at global legal business, DWF, comments on the IHS Markit / CIPS UK Construction PMI for November 2021.

He said:

"The November data shows a sharp increase in business activity during November, led by the fastest upturn in commercial work since July. However, job-hiring growth was still maintained in November but was the weakest since March.

"On the flipside, there were signs that the worst phase of supplier delays may have passed, with the portion of survey respondents citing longer delivery times falling to 47% in November in comparison to 77% in June. Whilst this is a glimmer of hope, the ongoing driver shortages and port delays have resulted in supply chain managers buying more than their immediate, which means supply chain disruptions are far from over."
