United Kingdom Business Investment  1967-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Business investment in the United Kingdom increased 0.2 percent on quarter to GBP 45.761 billion in the third quarter of 2017, well below a 0.5 percent rise in the previous period and market expectations of a 0.4 percent gain. It is the smallest increase in business investment so far this year as growth in intellectual property products (IPP) and other buildings and structures was partially offset by a fall in information and communication technology equipment and other machinery and equipment. Year-on-year, business investment grew by 1.3 percent, below 2.5 percent in the previous quarter and forecasts of 1.4 percent. IPP and other buildings and structures contributed the most to growth while transport equipment fell sharply. Private Investment in the United Kingdom averaged 1.09 percent from 1967 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 64.50 percent in the first quarter of 1997 and a record low of -33.80 percent in the third quarter of 2005.
