Modular Construction Materials Market to Reach US$ 101.3 Bn by 2022

Posted by Kaustubh Ravan on July 10th, 2024

The Global Modular Construction Materials Market was valued at US$ 101.3 Bn in 2022 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2031.

Rise in awareness about the need for sustainable and eco-friendly construction practices is anticipated to propel market size in the next few years. Technological advances in modular construction are spurring demand in the global market.

Modular construction materials are increasingly becoming popular for commercial, residential, and industrial construction undertakings. This is due to their faster construction and greater efficiency in the building process.

These materials are pre-molded components that are put together off-site and are then transported to the construction site for final installation. These materials offer tangible benefits over traditional on-site construction techniques.

To Remain Ahead of Your Competitors, Request for a Sample:

Modular construction materials are suitable for commercial, residential, and industrial construction processes. The selection of modular construction materials for a specific project depends on factors such as the location of the building, design, and intended use of the building. Steel, wood, concrete, and composites are the commonly used materials for modular construction.

Key Findings of Study

  • Increase in Shift to Sustainable and Eco-friendly Construction Practices – Rise in awareness about environment preservation has induced the construction sector to increasingly shift to sustainable and eco-friendly construction practices. This is because traditional construction practices adversely affect the environment due to discharge of greenhouse gas emissions, excessive waste production, and resource depletion at various stages of construction.

    On the other hand, modular construction materials are fabricated in a controlled manufacturing setting, where recycled materials can be used and waste can be reused. This is promoting the construction of modular buildings, which is spurring growth of the Modular Construction Materials Market.
  • Technological Advancements in Modular Construction – Next-gen technologies, including building information modelling (BIM) and 3D printing, are increasingly gaining traction in the construction sector due to advantages such as improved quality, accuracy, and safety of modular construction undertakings. BIM helps to create computerized models for visual representation of the construction process and identifies possible issues even before construction commences.

    3D printing enables manufacture of custom modular parts in a fast and efficient manner, and thus helps to reduce time and cost to market. Additionally, adoption of modular smart building systems, such as sensors and controls, during the modular construction process helps to construct buildings that are energy-efficient and have higher degree of sustainability. Therefore, adoption of technologically advanced modular construction process is propelling the Modular Construction Materials Market.
  • Steel Segment Gaining Traction – According to recent market trends, the steel segment is anticipated to dominate the global Modular Construction Materials Market during the forecast period. Steel displays several distinctive properties, including high strength, durability, and flexibility, and is thus considered a key modular construction material. Furthermore, steel is a sustainable material, as it can be recycled and reused for various purposes after the lifespan of a building. Usage of steel in modular buildings facilitates faster and more efficient method of construction, and thus saves project costs and time.

    Adoption of next-gen technology has enabled development of modular components fabricated of steel that are sustainable and energy-efficient.

    The continual evolution of Modular Construction Materials Market underscores possibilities of other materials such as wood and plastic to gain prominence in the near future.
