United Kingdom: non-consolidated private sector debt 2008-2018

Private sector debt includes the stock of liabilities, debt securities and loans, held by non-financial corporations, households and non-profit institutions serving households. Between 2008 and 2018, the value of non-consolidated debt of the private sector in the United Kingdom (UK) increased by almost 527 billion euros, reaching its highest value of 3.6 trillion euros in 2018. Indebtedness is correlated with rising income levels since borrowing allows an increase in consumption and investment. Nevertheless, overborrowing exposes businesses to risk of changes in economic conditions, interest rates and inflation.
