Prefabricated Buildings Industry - Global Trends, Analysis & Forecasts to 2024

Purchase Report

Prefabricated Buildings Industry

The market was valued at USD XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of XX%, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period).

Prefabricated buildings (also known as prefabs) are the building structures manufactured offsite and are transported to the location for on-site assembly. Prefabricated construction materials can be classified into two types – concrete-based and metal prefabricated products. Some of the metal prefabricated components that have high market demand are: frames, partition panels, door and window frames, metallic roof systems, formworks at different levels of construction, precast beams and façades, tunnel linings, girders for bridges, platforms for metro works, sewage discharge units and underground facilities, etc. Prefabs are gaining popularity not only in the commercial buildings sector but also in the area of residential living spaces. Prefabricated buildings came into limelight during the world war periods as they were the fastest and affordable way to restore housess that were destroyed during the war. Prefabricated houses played a key role in eastern European countries, as well as the United Kingdom to reduce the housing shortages during the 20th century. However, prefabricated buildings are expected to become increasingly common in future due to the sustainability benefits they offer with their modern housing solutions.  

Market Dynamics

Currently, a demand for prefabricated products, in various shapes and dimensions, can be seen. Prefabricated metal products are also used to fulfil modern architectural demands where the structures of the building have decorative elements with unique shapes. There is a trend in the increased usage of prefabricated components in the construction sector owing to the cost benefits and time constraints. Rapid urbanization and the need to overcome the shortage in housing, is providing a market scope for prefabricated structures. The global construction and development industry is expected to be the vibrant sector during the forecast period, considering the assured infrastructural development projects. This situation guarantees a market for prefabricated metal products. However, the market has a few constraints such as durability issues and lack of proper financing options for the prefabricated living spaces.
