  • BCC: Global Headwinds and Uncertainty Slow UK Growth in 2016
    UK GDP is expected to expand at a stronger pace than in most other G7 economies and broadly in line with our long term trend Growth will benefit from higher disposable incomes low inflation and a strong labour market Though services and consumer spending will remain the key growth drivers of the UK economy our forecast envisages slower growth in these areas than we predicted previously Weaker growth than previously expected in most UK sectors reflects a general global slowdown which is due to lower productivity adverse demographic trends and geo political uncertainties The worse net UK trade position that we are now predicting is mostly due to weaker global growth but we do need to do more to boost exports Worsening global trends will present the main dangers for the UK economy over the next few years Given the unacceptable size of the current account deficit failure to achieve a meaningful improvement in net exports will make the UK vulnerable to speculative attacks and our credit rating could be at risk Other elements from within the forecast Main components of demand Annual average growth in household consumption is forecast to slow from 3 0 in 2015 to 2 7 in 2016 2 5 in 2017 and 2 4 in 2018 In calendar year terms UK business investment growth of 4 5 is predicted in 2016 7 4 in 2017 and 7 4 in 2018 In full year terms growth in real exports accelerated to 5 0 in 2015 but real exports fell in Q3 Q4 2015 The new forecast is that real exports in full year terms will grow by 2 3 in 2016 3 0 in 2017 and 3 0 in 2018 The real net trade deficit having risen to 3 3 of GDP in 2015 is forecast to rise further to 3 7 of GDP in 2016 it will then edge down marginally to 3 6 of GDP in both 2017 2018 Main sectors of the economy Service sector output is forecast to grow by 2 6 in 2016 2 7 in 2017 and 2 7 in 2018 The share of services in UK output is likely to rise further in the next few years and the sector will remain the biggest contributor to GDP growth Manufacturing output is expected to grow more slowly than services by 0 5 in 2016 1 4 in 2017 and 1 4 in 2018 Total industrial output growth is forecast at 0 5 in 2016 1 0 in 2017 and 1 0 in 2018 Construction output growth is forecast at 0 5 in 2016 2 6 in 2016 2 6 in 2018 Official interest rates The first increase in UK official interest rates to 0 75 is expected to occur in Q4 2016 one quarter later than previously predicted Further modest increases in official interest rates can then be expected in small 0 25 steps with official interest rates reaching 1 50 in Q4 2017 Unemployment and productivity The UK unemployment
