Market Overview

The Prefabricated Building Market in Germany is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 4% during the forecast period 2022-2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immense disruptions in construction works across Germany. With the fall in building and construction operations, the need for prefabricated building systems has fallen significantly, which has had a major impact on the market growth. Several construction companies shut down their projects due to lockdown and restrictions. Since a high workforce is required for traditional construction, opting for prefabricated buildings came out as an optimum solution during the pandemic. Due to lockdown in country prefabricated manufacturing companies have faced a range of challenges owing to the shortage of raw materials and labour. The revenue of prefabricated building market was decreased drastically in 2020 due to covid 19. Slow recovery has been seen in 2021 after relaxation of lockdown norms.

Prefabricated housing is gaining popularity across the European region due to the population growth and shortages in housing. It is gaining momentum as an effective means to build affordable housing. Prefabricated housing demand is on the rise, as the building technique’s advantages are increasingly being leveraged by new home buyers in an improving economic and demographically charged marketplace.The adoption of additive manufacturing in Europe is expected to boost the prefabricated construction sector in Germany significantly. Companies are embracing environment friendly products and production practices to set themselves apart from the competition. The introduction of energy-absorbing materials such as micro dwellings has resulted from the focus on energy efficiency.

The rising awareness of construction wastage and its impact on the environment is encouraging the adoption of prefabricated buildings. Various interior and exterior architectural styles that cannot be realized in a house built on-site can be easily deployed in a prefabricated house. Technological progress and manufacturers' focus on providing customers with high-quality services can further promote the growth of the Germany prefabricated building market during the forecast period.

Scope of the report

Prefabricated buildings, or prefabs, are buildings with components (walls, roof, and floor) that are manufactured in a factory or manufacturing plant. These components can be fully or partially assembled in a factory which is then transferred at the construction site.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Labour Cost

Construction required all types of labour such as full skilled, semi-skilled and low skilled labour. The requirement of semi-skilled and low skilled labour is more as compared with full skilled labour in construction activity. In Germany availability of unskilled and semiskilled labour is declining very rapidly. The Head of the Federal Employment Agency of Germany said that Germany requires 400,000 new immigrant labour per year to fulfil the countries labour need. There is government regulation for paying minimum wages to the labour. The rules have been set by the Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs for minimum wages of labour. There is around 15.8% hike in Minimum Wages Set (Gross per hour) from 2015 to 2021. This increased labour cost resulting in high construction cost of building. As prefabricated buildings are manufactured in advance in other location and can be transported and assembled. It is shifting the focus of consumer towards it over conventionally constructed building and driving growth of prefabricated building market

Growing Demand for Precast Concrete

Precast concrete generally used in both commercial and residential prefabricated buildings. Due to high strength and low cost compared with other materials like glass, metal and timber precast concrete getting huge popularity and adoption in construction of building. In 2021 concrete segment acquired major share of Germany prefabricated buildings market. In Germany, there are currently very few trained people available in the private sector to implement the precast concrete system. The service provided is more focused on the various other market-building methods and techniques available.

Recent Development

In Nov 2021, Daiwa House Modular Europe and real estate investor Capital Bay have announced plans to jointly open a megafactory to build prefabricated modular homes in Germany. The factory, which will be constructed to the east of Berlin, will help to alleviate Europe’s housing shortage by building tens of thousands of modular homes.

In July 2021- Construction has begun on Traumhaus Funari, a 2,700 sq m redevelopment of a former US army barracks by Dutch architect MVRDV in Mannheim, southwest Germany.MVRDV is working with prefabricated housing firm Traumhaus on creating variations of its house designs. These will offer residents a choice of materials, sizes and interior layouts.Traumhaus Funari’s first phase will include 124 single-family homes and 26 apartments.
