New York, April 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "United Kingdom (UK) Mortgage Market 2020 - Review, Forecasts, and Future Opportunities" -
1% higher in January 2021 than at the same point in 2020. This can largely be attributed to changes in stamp duty, creating an incentive for consumers to buy property. Residential mortgage lending growth is set to continue at a steady pace, reaching £1,730bn in 2025 - up from £1,499bn in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 2.91%. Meanwhile, the UK economy shrank by 10.9% in 2020, one of the worst falls for a comparable developed nation. And while real wage growth and unemployment stayed benign at 3.8% and 5% respectively, inflation is likely to rise sharply in the short term as the velocity of money increases. Meanwhile, the government has proposed several reforms, trying to tackle the UK’s housing shortage and dysfunctional housebuilding market by increasing housing affordability. In the long term these reforms are likely to be successful, which should lead to more consumers requiring a mortgage and therefore increasing overall mortgage growth.

This report provides insight into the UK mortgage market, including overall and forecast mortgage balances to 2025, a look at the UK macroeconomic scene during the course of 2020 and the likely short- and long-term outcomes, and the latest market share data for the top UK mortgage providers going back to 2010.It also provides analysis of recent regulatory changes around shared equity mortgages and how changes to planning policy are likely to affect the overall UK mortgage market.
