About the BMBI

The BMBI, a brand of the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF), is a monthly index of builders’ merchant sales. Summary reports are published each month and more in-depth reports, including Expert comments and analysis, every quarter.


Courtesy of MRA Research, the Index is the most reliable, up-to-date measure of the UK’s Repair, Maintenance and Improvement market. The reports and data are based on GfK’s definitive Builders Merchant Point of Sale Tracking Data, which analyses sales out data from over 80% of generalist builders’ merchants’ sales across Great Britain. 

BMBI is widely used and referenced in construction, and more widely by economists, investment companies, advisors, the media and Government. The panel of 15 leading brands are an integral part of the Index. 

Mike Rigby, MRA Research CEO, comments: “We’re delighted to welcome Bostik representing Adhesives & Sealants. BMBI fills an important gap in the UK’s construction statistics with the quarterly reports including expert analysis of market trends and issues.

“The BMBI Experts who comment are leading voices in their sectors, speaking for their markets. The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) includes BMBI reports in its Monthly Construction Update alongside the ONS, Bank of England and IHS Markit reports.”

Mathew Whitehouse adds: “There’s no doubt that BMBI platform provides fantastic insight into the construction sector and joining the Expert panel is recognition of our position in the market.

“We look forward to sharing insights into the adhesives and sealants market as well as contributing to the BMBI debates.”
