Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Prefabricated Buildings

  • The prefabricated building has obvious advantages and the industry has a high growth potential. Prefabricated buildings are prefabricated with building components as the core. They refer to the use of industrial production methods to build houses.
  • Some or all of the components of the house are prefabricated in the factory, then transported to the construction site, and the components are assembled by reliable connection. From the perspective of environmental protection, the prefabricated building can significantly save water, save energy and reduce waste discharge.
  • China's prefabricated building applications are mainly concentrated in precast concrete buildings and prefabricated steel structures.
  • China's prefabricated buildings are mainly concentrated in East China and North China. The economies of these regions are relatively developed, and the speed and frequency of the introduction of prefabricated building-related policies by local governments are also significantly higher than those of other regions.
  • Also, the Chinese government has clearly expressed its strong support for the development of fabricated buildings.
Trend 1

Increasing Use of Structural Steel in the Construction Industry

  • Structural steels form an important part of fabricated buildings, in China structural steel accounted for about 30% of prefabricated buildings, which was higher than the previous years. Majority of the structural steel were used for the construction of commercial and industrial buildings until 2018.
  • Structural steel construction accounted for up to 5% of the overall construction industry in China. Also, majority of the construction companies have been opting to increase the use of structural steel in the construction process due to reduced cost and labour as compared to that of traditional process.
  • Due to this increased preference towards structural steel in china the usage of structural steel in the construction industry within the country is expected to reach about 10% during the forecast period. Additionally, industry experts believe that there is still huge room for development in steel structure buildings and steel structure houses.
