The BMBI is a reliable, up-to-date measure of Repair, Maintenance and Improvement (RMI) activity in the UK using GfK’s Builders Merchant Point of Sale Tracking Data which analyses sales out data from over 80% of generalist builders’ merchants’ sales across Great Britain. Produced and managed by MRA Marketing, monthly reports track what is happening in the market month by month, with an in-depth review every quarter.
The panel of leading industry Experts is an integral part of the Index. The Experts add perspective, meaning and context to the data. They help to make sense of trends for users of the BMBI. The Experts explain issues, highlight opportunities, and where appropriate make the case for or against legislation, industry schemes or government policy.
