This report projects that the modular construction market will grow from USD 92.18 billion in 2018 to USD 129.67 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.1%.

Growth in infrastructure investment and industrialization, ease of installation and relocation, and the demand for affordable housing drive the growth of the modular construction market. The housing segment is projected to account for a larger share through 2023. The cost-effectiveness and time-saving characteristics of this technology have contributed toward its use for developing buildings. Furthermore, it offers numerous benefits in terms of quality control, faster build times, greater flexibility and reuse, cost savings, and environmental benefits.

The segmentation for this report is based on type, material, module, end-use sector, and region. Housing is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use sector segment of the modular construction market. In this sector, the demand for modular construction is expected to be driven by the demand for affordable housing with time-saving characteristics. Countries are turning toward the adoption of modular construction methods to meet the rising demand for housing that is eco-friendly and cost-effective due to efficient in-factory processes and reduced waste.

By material, the market has been segmented into steel, precast concrete, wood, plastic, and others. Each material differs from others on the basis of advantages and limitations. In 2017, steel accounted for the largest share of the modular construction market. Design flexibility, strength, structural integrity, durability, security and fire resistance, and reduced need for repairs and maintenance throughout a building's life have contributed toward the extensive use of steel in modular construction.

Permanent modular construction dominated the market in 2017, in terms of value, as a result of the rising need for affordable houses, coupled with the high-quality control in comparison to on-site construction. Permanent modular construction is widely employed in numerous sectors, including residential, office and administrative spaces, K-12 education, retail and hospitality, healthcare, higher education student housing, and publicly-funded facilities.

Asia Pacific dominated the modular construction market in 2017, in terms of value. China contributes a major share to the Asia Pacific modular construction market. Increasing urbanization, increasing demand for buildings at affordable costs, and favorable policies and plans are driving the demand for modular construction in the region. Chinese prefabrication manufacturers are further collaborating with global manufacturers to solve their crisis for houses. For instance, UK's Your Housing Group signed a deal of USD 2.77 billion with the state-owned China National Building Material Company. Under this project, 25,000 new homes would be constructed over the next five years.
