Modular & Prefabricated Construction Market by Type (Permanent, Relocatable), Application (Educational, Healthcare, Industrial, Commercial, Residential), Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2021 to 2028

Newark, NJ, Feb. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global modular & prefabricated construction market is expected to grow from USD 101.7 billion in 2020 to USD 173.44 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

Some of the factors that are driving the global modular & prefabricated construction market are increasing adoption of modular construction in the healthcare industry, increasing demand for new houses in developing regions, quality control, superior flexibility & reuse, better worker safety, environmental benefits, and shifting trend towards cost & time savings construction projects.

One of the main motives for using modular construction is to accelerate turnaround times compared to conventional on-site construction. According to market data, modular construction accounted for saving 30% to 50% time over conventional construction. The sector is projected to see a renewed interest from the construction industry due to an increasing focus on sustainability, quality and safety at work, as well as time & cost savings associated with construction projects. In countries like Finland, Canada and Sweden, short daytime & freezing weather impede conventional building methods. In 2018, approximately 85% of new homes in Sweden were built using some type of modular engineering. Also, modular construction shows a major reduction in waste generation compared to standard building methods.

With the outbreak of a global pandemic, many have faced salary cuts and job losses. Covid-19 has become a threat to the entire world's economy and has negatively impacted all kinds of markets, including the modular & prefabricated construction market. With less disposable income, broken supply chains, and obstruction in construction activities due to lockdowns, the market's growth is expected to slow down. Other negative factors that are hindering the market growth are volatile raw material prices, lack of consumer awareness and transportation & logistics issues.


Key players operating in the global modular & prefabricated construction market include Red Sea Housing, Kleusberg GmbH, Laing O'Rourke, ATCO Structures & Logistics, Algeco Scotsman, Katerra, Fluor Corporation, and Bechtel Corporation, among others. To gain a significant market share in the global modular & prefabricated construction market, the key players are now focusing on adopting strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. Red Sea Housing and Laing O'Rourke are some of the biggest manufacturers and suppliers of modular & prefabricated constructed buildings in the global market.

  • For instance, ATCO Structures & Logistics inaugurated a hire yard facility & a manufacturing plant in Queensland, Australia in October 2019. The new facility will be able to manufacture a broad range of modular products such as sporting amenities, construction offices, libraries, classrooms, hospitals, and crib rooms.
