Global Modular Construction Market Overview
Modular Construction Market Trends

Rapid urbanization and industrialization, together with accelerated construction and high productivity, will drive market growth


The demand for infrastructure investment is increasing significantly everywhere, particularly in developing economies. Between 2014 and 2025, the globe is projected to spend almost USD 78 trillion on infrastructure development. Additionally, infrastructure expenditure has bounced back from the financial crisis and is anticipated to increase by more than USD 5 trillion by 2025. They are expected to spend more money on houses and companies as more people relocate to cities like India, Japan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Mexico, and China.


Additionally, modular building is growing in popularity because of its numerous benefits, including improved structural stability, quicker and better construction, greater flexibility, reduced waste, and reduced labor requirements. With all of these advantages, many newcomers are trying their luck in this industry to profit from its expansion and make a lot of money. As a result, more experts and even brand-new businesses are entering the market for modular buildings to gain notoriety.

The growing foundation speculations are predicted to push the measured development to promote growth due to the increase in industrialization and urbanization in developing countries like India, Vietnam, and China. In addition, increased commercial real estate speculation is predicted to contribute to the pre-assembled development display income significantly. For instance, commercial property rentals in India have grown by 30% in the first four months of 2019. According to secondary sources, the rental zone has an approximate area of about 60 million square feet. The government's initiatives to encourage eco-friendly building practices, construction techniques, and waste reduction are expected to increase demand for modular construction. For instance, pre-finished, prefabricated, and volumetric construction (PPVC) components must be used in all developments on land that the government of Singapore holds. This is supported by subsidies for participating businesses to standardize and improve modern construction methods (MMC) across the country, raising demand for off-site construction.


The modular construction industry is driven by advancing government initiatives to cut down on construction waste and promote green buildings. In several projects on government property, for instance, the government of Singapore has enforced the use of PPVC (prefabricated, pre-finished, volumetric construction) parts. In addition, the government gives businesses incentives that help standardize contemporary construction techniques. The Canadian Minister of Families and other members of Parliament announced on March 15, 2021, that the Rapid Housing Initiative would spend CAD 16.4 million in the Surrey Center to construct 44 new, affordable houses. Shortly, the prefabricated construction industry is anticipated to be driven by rising R&D expenditures for innovative building solutions.


When constructing projects, the healthcare industry looks for ways to expedite progress and reduce costs while maintaining a high-quality medical facility. Hospitals and other healthcare facility operators are relying on modular construction more than ever for their expansion requirements. Additionally, one environmentally friendly manufacturing method that has lately grown in favor is a modular building. Sustainable solutions are required, as is knowledge of the potential environmental effects of building alone. Therefore, such Rapid urbanization and government initiatives have enhanced the modular construction market CAGR ly in recent years.


However, to cater to the demand, significant advances in the construction technique and innovations are driving the growth of the Modular Construction Market revenue.


Modular Construction Market Segment Insights


Modular Construction Material Type Insights


The Modular Construction Market segmentation, based on material type, includes Concrete, Steel, Plastic, Wood and Others. With a maximum share of almost 41.60 percent of the overall revenue, the steel segment became the largest in 2021.
