Prefabricated Buildings Market Analysis

The Prefabricated Buildings Market size is expected to grow from USD 234.17 billion in 2023 to USD 331.36 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.19% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

  • All construction-related operations worldwide stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent lockdowns. As a result, modular construction projects in various construction segments, such as educational, residential, airports, and others, had decreased, thus significantly impacting demand for prefabricated buildings. In several places, the supply chain had also been interrupted, thus causing a delay in the delivery of construction material required and affecting the construction activities.
  • The adoption of additive manufacturing in Europe is expected to significantly boost the prefabricated construction sector. Companies are embracing eco-friendly products and production practices to set themselves apart from the competition. The introduction of energy-absorbing materials such as micro dwellings resulted from the focus on energy efficiency.
  • Another major factor driving market expansion in the region, particularly in Switzerland, the Nordics, and the United Kingdom, is the introduction of turnkey solutions. The prefabricated building industry in Europe is dominated by Germany, the Nordic countries, and the United Kingdom.
  • The United Kingdom is a prospective market for prefabricated building companies. The major players are investing in improved performance and productivity to capitalize on the market's growth potential and modular construction approaches. The existing shortage of skilled labor in the construction industry is a crucial element sustaining the United Kingdom's position in the European prefabricated building industry.
  • Prefab enterprises have a huge opportunity in India, where there is a need for hundreds or thousands more plants in the future. India is anticipated to be among the fastest-growing countries in terms of construction output over the next few years, making technology a critical component.
  • India is projected to be the world's second-largest building market in the next five years. A continued government push for digitalization and the adoption of cutting-edge construction technology like BIM is a key driver for the adoption of prefabricated buildings. Government efforts such as "Digital India," "Housing for All," and "Bharatmala Pariyojana" have boosted the use of prefabricated buildings in India.

Prefabricated Buildings Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Prefabricated Buildings Market according to our research experts:

Growing demand for Modular Construction

Due to rapid economic development in developing nations and historically low-interest rates in many wealthy nations, there is a rising demand for construction. Along with this, the market is anticipated to rise throughout the forecast period due to factors like rising disposable income, technological advancements, and increased private-sector investments in construction. Additionally, greater spending on housing and infrastructure by governments around the world is boosting market expansion.Time and cost are two factors related to building operations that have long been viewed as a barrier to the industry's expansion in many emerging economies. Overcoming this restriction has been one of the main challenges for many significant building enterprises across the world. The prefabricated building system is one of the primary remedies for these issues.

Prefabricated building technologies can reduce construction time by 30 to 50 percent in today's market and provide an alternative. Since fewer workers are needed for the on-site procedures, the system is economical.Another unintended consequence of the process is reduced on-site activity is the significantly smaller amount of garbage that is generated. Because of these benefits, prefabricated building system activities are growing in popularity in the construction sector.

In nations like Singapore and India, where governments are investing extensively in boosting the building and construction sector, business is booming. The Australian Trade and Investment Commission estimates that Singapore spends at least $2 billion a month on public infrastructure. Additionally, the Dutch construction industry is growing thanks to the government's program for a circular economy, which aims to create a circular economy in the country by 2050. Furthermore, due to different government efforts like Foreign Direct Investments, the building and construction industries are also expanding.

Prefabricated building systems are widely employed in the construction of both residential and non-residential structures because they have several advantages, including being environmentally friendly, flexible, causing less site disruption, and cost savings.Therefore, it is anticipated that demand for prefabricated building systems like ventilated thermal panels will expand significantly as construction activity increases globally. As a result, such government initiatives and investments in the building sector serve as a market driver.

Asia-Pacific is Projected to Witness Highest Growth in the Market

The Asia-Pacific prefabricated buildings market is estimated to witness the highest growth over the next five years. The prefabricated construction market in Japan is comparatively mature and developed compared to other regions of the world. 

The inspections by industry-specific trained professionals rather than a general building code have also contributed to the development of the Japanese prefabricated housing market. The concept of prefabrication is gaining prominence in the Indian construction market. 

The entry of prefabricated homes in India has paved the way for innovative and technologically advanced construction and design methods for all kinds of construction, such as villas and mass townships. 

With the population continuing to decline in Japan combined with an aging population, it is undeniable that the demand for new house construction also decreases. The companies are looking to capture the potential growth in China and other Asian countries as demand for new construction declines in the shrinking domestic market.
