Rising smart infrastructure demand along with increasing infrastructure spending in economically stabilizing countries should drive global civil engineering market size. Urbanization, population growth, and environmental impacts have necessitated the need for smart and sustainable solutions infrastructure solutions. Providing efficient and sustainable construction methods accompanied by ability to offer effective planning, designing, & integrating are key factors fueling civil engineering industry demand.

Rising need for technology and policy investment owing to provide smart grids, urban mobility, industry automation, water management and parking systems would favor civil engineering scope in various industries. North America and Europe are foreseen to be the major contributors as the industry expects around 50% global smart cities would be located in these regions.

A surge in the numbers of green buildings, sensor-embedded buildings, geopolymer concrete, sensor-embedded roads, water management adoption should stimulate growth. Global smart cities trend is expanding with commissioned projects moving from 170 in 2013 to 235 in 2016.

By 2013, smart city construction had become a movement of urban development resulting in 193 approved pilot projects in the country. IBM’s proposition of smarter cities resulted in the government approval of USD 599 billion investment in infrastructure and social welfare.

Increasing spending to improve residential, commercial, and industrial infrastructure along with aim for energy conservation initiatives should drive civil engineering market growth. Moreover, non-residential and institutional sector expansion owing to improved government & state finances have fueled industry expansion. According to ASCE, the U.S. non-residential construction registered 12.4% growth owing to increase in public funding and reduction in steel, iron, copper, and natural gas prices in 2015.

Stringent regulations related to safety and prevention of potential risks and hazards will continue to draw in more customer spending. Regulatory amendments in the laws and standards for building access, pool fences & safety laws, plumbing, sustainable housing, fire safety, industrial, agricultural buildings, and workshops would support civil engineering market growth.

Key players in the industry are progressively investing in innovative solutions for increased efficiency, cost optimization and revenue gains. These construction companies’ investment plans reveal an investment of around 5% of the annual profits in digital solutions over the forecast timeframe for gaining a competitive edge over the competitors. Customer satisfaction is driving new initiatives in most organizations and appropriate instrumentation and automation in this industry.

Adopting Building Information Modeling systems (BIM) for automating designing & engineering efforts and providing important information for site workers from distant design centers are among the most advanced ways to curb expenditure.

Stringent and time-consuming procedures in the tender procurement, such as administrative approval, delayed payments to the contractors along with existing corruption levels in different regional segments, are projected to pose a major threat. Longer projects duration, improper estimations and increased infrastructure cost may affect civil engineering market price trend.
