Construction is one of the most dynamic sectors crucial for long-term development. As per Oxford Economics, global construction is anticipated to grow to USD 15.5 trillion by 2030, mainly driven by India, the U.S., and China. Strong development of residential & commercial structures in developed countries due to the rising demand for residential dwellings and commercial spaces will fuel the market growth.

Modular construction yields time saving by facilitating simultaneous work both onsite and offsite and helping in better co-ordination. It also reduces efforts in onsite scaffolding and helps in avoiding weather impacts.

Prefabricated construction proves to be effective in minimizing project schedule & cost, improves productivity, and helps achieving economies of scale, since traditional onsite construction is both expensive and labor intensive. Modular construction is ideal in repetitive design elements. It proves to be effective in scheduling in sectors such as education institutions, hospitality, hospital complex, etc., where project timelines are strict. Therefore, modularization emerges as a vital construction alternative to plants and building owners.

Modular construction is anticipated to gain more popularity among developed nations due to their eco-friendliness, cost benefits, and energy-saving characteristics. Moreover, the modular & prefabricated construction market is witnessing increased attention and investment due to new technology adoption by market players. Changing consumer perceptions owing to employment of improved materials in construction for enhanced visual appeal of prefab buildings will support the market demand.

The lack of awareness is still prevailing in emerging economies, posing threats to the market. In addition, limited number of providers and increased logistics requirements and transportation are some of the primary challenges faced by owners. In many markets, modular construction is still expensive and needs constructive efforts to build efficient solutions for market penetration.

Furthermore, elevating COVID-19 crisis has created a new set of challenges for industry workers. COVID-19 has shrunken the economic output of top G7 countries around the world, and the construction industry is adversely affected. The coronavirus infection has reshaped consumer’s spending capacities. Supply chain disruptions and demand erosion will decrease the product demand.

Rising adoption of permanent prefabricated construction will propel the industry growth

The permanent prefabricated construction market size valued at USD 82.75 billion in 2019 and is likely to witness 7.2% growth rate through 2026. Over 60% of modular construction is permanent, which utilizes offsite lean manufacturing to develop multistory building solutions. Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) uses prefabricated modules that are manufactured offsite and assembled on-site.

This type of construction is generally employed in stand-alone or site-built projects that deliver high-quality control and low wastage. Increasing need for office spaces in developed & developing economies is driving the modular & prefabricated construction market growth.

Superior properties of concrete material will escalate prefab construction demand

The concrete material segment accounted more than USD 13.67 billion revenue in 2019 and is poised to register growth rate of around 8.4% during 2020-2026. Concrete and modified concrete are used in a large percentage owing to their ability to give strength and stability to structures. Concrete modules can be molded into any shape and size.

Modular buildings are constructed to meet same building codes as onsite structures. They offer several benefits such as customization, easy installation, economic benefits, etc. Advancements in concrete technology and introduction of smart concrete in modular construction will create lucrative growth opportunities in the market.

Multi-family residential application will accommodate substantial modular & prefabricated construction market share

The Europe modular & prefabricated construction market revenue is predicted to cross USD 70.4 billion by 2026. One of the major goals of the Europe construction industry is to promote green energy and encourage “smart infrastructure”. The policy aims to include substantial investment in technology and foster innovation in the construction industry.

Countries, such as Germany, Poland, the UK, Finland, and Sweden, will witness a modest growth rate through 2026 impelled by high product penetration, green building initiatives, reviving remodeling industry, and rapid upgrades in infrastructure projects. The UK government, in order to resolve housing issues, has committed to deliver 300,000 homes every year by 2020.

Sweden appears to be the leading country in adoption of prefabricated construction, with over 75% housing structures built offsite in factories, as people are focusing more on turnkey solutions. Increasing acceptance of 3D reinforced concrete modules will accelerate the construction rate of modular housing.

Acquisitions, low cost production, and geographical expansion are key strategies

Industry innovation and research are crucial factors for sustainable growth and survival in a competitive environment. Many product manufacturers try to secure funding for R&D activities.
