  • 09.09.2019

Against the backdrop of a post-Brexit environment, the BNP Paribas Market Leaders Report – carried out by CEBR – analyses the fastest growing sectors in the UK economy over the next two decades, and the industries that will power the UK’s long-term prosperity after leaving the European Union.


The fastest growing sectors in the UK economy 

From environmental policy to digital disruption and changing workplace trends, the report also analyses the underlying drivers of growth of market-leading businesses, using a survey of more than 1,500 UK enterprises across different sectors

Key findings of the report include: 

  • The scientific, admin, professional and support services sector is set to more than double in size over the next 20 years,
  • The transport and communications sector will create 120 new jobs a day until 2038, with technology and environmental changes being a major driver,
  • The health and social work sector will become the UK’s fifth largest sector as it grows to meet the demands of an ageing population,
  • Environmental concerns and new technology will be core drivers of growth across all sectors of the UK over the long term.
