Midland Lead’s Lynn Street Provides Expert Insight into BMBI Quarterly Report

BMBI Q4 2019 Report expert comment from Midland Lead

The latest BMBI quarterly report has been published and it reveals detailed insights into the industry and how it performed during the last few months of 2019.

BMBI quarterly report highlightsMidland Lead Sales and Marketing Manager, Lynn Street, is BMBI’s Expert for Lead. She commented with an optimistic outlook; “Following a generally strong 2019 for the roofing sector, a number of political challenges had a negative impact on the last three months. The general election and fatigue over Brexit almost certainly played its part.

“That said, the demand and sale of lead products has increased year on year compared with other heavy building materials. Brexit has no direct impact on the way manufacturers source raw materials due to the fact that lead is 99.8% recycled, and therefore fully sustainable.”

“The roofing and general construction sectors are responding to increased demand from end-users and merchants, for manufacturers and suppliers to provide and, more importantly, prove sustainability. In this, real lead will surpass alternatives when clients and specifiers expect to see certification to evidence green credentials.”

Lynn Street BMBI expert comment for the lead industry“Looking ahead to the year 2020, demand for real lead products as a sustainable building material will continue to increase, as the roofing and construction sector regains its composure, following a rocky end to 2019. Lead manufacturers will need to continue to champion lead and provide evidence about efficient processing, packaging and their carbon footprint.”
