Marketing’s role in the construction industry’s post-Covid recovery

PBC Today | October 26, 2020

James Ellis, chair of the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Construction Industry Group (CIMCIG), discusses the vital role marketers can play in helping the UK construction industry get back on its feet. Construction underpins both our economy and our society, contributing just under £29.5bn to the UK in Q1 of 2020. This is equal to 6% of total UK economic output. But due to Covid-19, the construction sector has suffered heavy losses due to supply chain disruption, a marked decline in output and a reduction in new order volumes. While construction activity has been allowed to continue throughout lockdown, many contractors temporarily shut down to undertake risk assessments, review on-site operations and implement new measures. As a result, total construction output plummeted by 45.2% in April 2020, according to figures from the ONS, but it would be a misstep to save on marketing efforts now. Looking at 600 companies from 1980 to 1985, McGraw-Hill Research found those which maintained or increased their marketing spend during the 1981 recession enjoyed sales 256% higher than those that didn’t by 1985. Kantar also estimates that brands who decide to ‘go dark’ until the storm passes in a bid to save costs will likely see a 39% reduction in brand awareness.
