About This Statistic
This statistic shows the gross domestic product (GDP) at current prices of the United Kingdom (UK) from 2000 to 2016. From 2000 to 2008 the gross domestic product at current prices increased each year, with the exception of 2009, whereby there was an annual decrease and UK GDP dropped to pre-2007 levels, this anomaly was due to the 2008 global financial crisis, decreasing by 4.3 percent to year on year GDP growth. By 2010 the market had recovered and from then until the end of this period UK GDP increased. In 2016 UK GDP had increased by almost double the value of UK GDP in 2000. A very similar trend can be seen in the development of quarterly GDP growth per capita. So too is this trend prominent in terms of the value of UK GDP in million GBP (at current market prices).
