November sales surge despite second lockdown

January 2021

Total Builders Merchants November 2020 value sales surged 9.0% ahead of November 2019. This was the largest year-on-year increase since March 2019, despite tougher Covid-19 restrictions taking effect from Thursday 5th November.

Four categories sold more, led by strong performances from Landscaping (+29.3%) and Timber & Joinery Products (+16.3%). Heavy Building Materials was 8.7% higher and Ironmongery (+2.4%) grew more slowly.  The other eight categories sold less, with Workwear & Safetywear (-6.0%) and Plumbing Heating & Electrical (-5.8%) weakest.

The Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) tracks builders’ merchants’ actual sales to builders and contractors using GfK’s Builders’ Merchant Point of Sale Tracking Data.  The BMBI represents over 80% of the value of the builders' merchants' market.
