Modular Construction Market Derails Slightly as COVID-19 Hits Construction Industry :

Pune, India, May 2020, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a Cooked Research Report on the Global Modular Construction Market.

Market Scope

Market Research Future (MRFR) asserts that the modular construction market 2020 can reach a size of USD 154.8 Million by 2023-end. MRFR also expects the market to procure a growth rate of 5.95% between 2015 and 2023 (assessment period). We will provide covid-19 impact analysis with the report, offering an in-depth review following the coronavirus disease outbreak.

COVID-19 Analysis

The COVID-19 impact analysis by MRFR suggests that the pandemic has triggered a short-term and long-term impact on the construction industry. While countries are struggling to find a COVID-19 breakthrough to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, a number of construction sites have been closed off with construction projects now on hold. Also, various hard-hit regions have suspended almost all the construction activities, and the projects that are continuing can observe delays on account of the collapsing supply chains that have affected the supply of raw materials. Contingency schemes along with government backing are being offered to ensure a smooth run for various aspects of the construction industry, which includes the modular construction market.

Going forward, the COVID-19 outbreak has managed to boost the value of AI and IoT, for building modular buildings across the globe. Modular buildings are being designed in such a way so that IoT devices can be easily integrated, which produce massive amounts of data and can use that data to optimize the modular building. This has worked in favor of the services as well as business models in the lockdown period, which is particularly beneficial for the ageing population; especially post SARS-CoV-2.

Primary Inducers and Main Restraints

In May 2020, P McVey Mobile Buildings supplied close to 40 modular buildings to various hospitals in Enniskillen (Ireland) during the COVID-19 crisis. The facilities provided by the company include temporary buildings for storage, sleeping, toilets and showers as well as additional offices. The COVID-19 impact has been so profound that facilities for health service staff has become inadequate, which drives the need for new modular infrastructure. In light of such a situation, various companies are looking for opportunities that can benefit people in need and the market as well.

The growth of the modular construction market is also stimulated by the widespread demand for low-priced housing combined with the rising investments in the development of commercial and healthcare infrastructure. The global market can also be bolstered by the renewed appetite of the building and construction industry for better efficiency, workplace safety and productivity and the need to reduce the cost as well as time while building structures.
