The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Construction PMI plunged to 43.1 in June 2019 from 48.6 in the previous month and well below market expectations of 49.3. The latest reading pointed to the steepest contraction in the construction sector since April 2009, amid heightened political and economic uncertainty. House building dropped the most in three years amid weaker demand conditions and concerns about the outlook for residential sales. In addition, commercial building projects recorded the steepest fall since December 2009 due to Brexit uncertainty and subsequent delays to project starts, while civil engineering activity shrank the most since October 2009. Total new work received by UK construction companies decreased the most for just over 10 years, while demand for construction products and materials fell at the sharpest pace since January 2010.
