The Government does not forecast skill shortage vacancies. The UK Commission for Employment and Skills published employment and skill projections on 6th March 2014:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-futures-2012-to-2022

The report presents employment projections for the period from 2012 to 2022, based on an assumption that past patterns of behaviour and performance are continued. The projected demand for skills is shown by occupation and qualification rather than by sector, but they do show employment projections for sectors.
