Business in Britain 2019


Welcome to Business in Britain, a series of in-depth reports that will get under the skin of three of the most important sectors in the UK economy: manufacturing, retail (launching September) and services (launching October).

Together, these key industries represent more than 90% of the UK’s economic output and employ more than 30 million people.

As part of our ongoing support for firms operating in these vital sectors, we’ve spoken with hundreds of senior leaders across large corporates to inform our research and to explore their ambitions and challenges leading the agenda in boardrooms across the country.

It’s part of our pledge to be at the side of business, helping firms capitalise on opportunities and navigate the challenges they face.

For a full analysis, alongside a sectoral and regional view, download the Business in Britain Manufacturing report here (PDF).

"The reality is that we are still the ninth largest manufacturing nation in the world and the sector plays a vital role as an employer, exporter and innovator."

Scott Barton, Managing Director and Head of Large Corporates Lloyds Bank
