United Kingdom Business Investment  1997-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Business investment in the United Kingdom went up 0.6 percent quarter-on-quarter to GBP 43.7 billion in the first three months of 2017, following a 0.9 percent drop in the previous period and in line with preliminary estimates. It is the highest gain in three quarters. The assets contributing most to business investment growth were other machinery and equipment, and intellectual property products (IPP), particularly software data. A smaller increase was seen in transport equipment. In contrast, the largest fall came from other buildings and structures. Year-on-year, business investment went up 0.7 percent, down from preliminary estimates of 0.8 percent. Nevertheless, it was the strongest gain since the last quarter of 2015, boosted by other machinery and equipment, and IPP, namely research and development. This overall increase was partially offset by a fall in other buildings and structures. Private Investment in the United Kingdom averaged 0.77 percent from 1997 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 59.40 percent in the second quarter of 2005 and a record low of -33.60 percent in the third quarter of 2005.
