The Builders' Merchant Building Index, a definitive monthly analysis of the changes in the builders' merchant market, has now released its report for Quarter 2 of 2016.

The Builders' Merchant Building Index (BMBI) combines data from GfK's Builders' Merchants Panel with the Builders' Merchant Federation's (BMF) Sales Indicators, in collaboration with MRA Marketing.

The GfK Builders' Merchants Panel started collecting data in July 2014, and all trend data in the report is indexed on the monthly average from the six-month period of July 2014 to December 2014.

A summary of the data will be published each month in Builders' Merchants News magazine, with a more in-depth report published each quarter.

Each month, the full report will be available for download from BMN's website.

The report also contains expert commentary from leading market brands, who will comment for their markets to explain the trends that lie behind the figures, in order to educate audiences both in and out of the construction industry.
