  • Abstract:
    Construction products sector is an important pillar of the UK economy. Under the UK government's productivity agenda, how to raise the productivity of this sector therefore becomes an issue of significance. Before exploring the productivity drivers of this sector, a systematic understanding of its industry structure is essential. The characterisation of this sector will be shown in this research from different dimensions, average size of enterprise, capital intensity and concentration ratios. These results characterise the features of the constituent industries of construction products sector and can be a useful basis for exploring productivity performance of this sector in the further studies.
