Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Rising Infrastructure Investments in Rapidly Growing Economies to Drive Market Growth

Growing infrastructure expenditures in developing economies such as India, Vietnam, and China are propelling the modular construction industry forward. These countries are investing heavily on infrastructure to support their rising economies, making modular construction an appealing alternative due to its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, increased commercial space investments are favorably impacting the modular construction industry.

Changing Government Measures to Fuel Market Growth

Government measures focused on decreasing construction waste and encouraging environmentally friendly building methods are propelling the modular construction business forward. For example, the Singaporean government has enforced the use of PPVC (prefabricated, pre-finished, volumetric construction) parts in several government projects and pays incentives to encourage the use of contemporary building technologies. Similarly, the Chinese State Council has pushed the use of prefabricated building components in new construction. Additionally, rising government funding for R&D in fresh construction solutions is projected to strengthen the prefabricated construction industry in the coming years, reflecting a larger worldwide movement toward green and efficient building techniques.


Increasing Offsite Manufacturing Investments and the Global Financial Crisis are hindering Market Growth

Modular construction frequently requires large expenditures and relies on consistent market development for long-term profitability. Difficulties with project pre-planning, which could require considerable coordination efforts for important parts like as layout, on-site installation, and transportation. As a result of strategic project pre-planning, manufacturing expenditures may grow, putting pressure on the investment rate. This dynamic has the potential to hinder the overall growth of the modular building industry, highlighting the significance of strong project management and cost-effective planning procedures in order to overcome these obstacles and realize the full potential of this revolutionary construction strategy.

Recent Developments

  • Daiwa House, Japan's largest construction business, announced a cooperation with Capital Bay in October 2022 to deliver modular structures throughout Europe. As a consequence of the JV, Capital Bay planned to employ modular construction modules for its own projects and operator brands, as well as make them available to other European clients.
  • Laing O'Rourke Delivery Ltd. completed the new HS2 Interchange Station in Solihull in June 2022, serving as the core of the country's new high-speed rail network. Under the terms of the contract, which may be worth up to GBP 370 million, they worked with HS2 Ltd. to finish the station's detailed design in two stages before it was completed over the next few years.
