Modular Construction Market Trends and Dynamics

An increase in the growth of infrastructure investment and industrialization globally and government initiatives are the driving factors for the growth of the market. Increasingly urgent demand in the housing, hospitality, and healthcare markets is also driving more projects to use modular construction. As many cities across the country are experiencing severe housing shortages, modular construction with its potential to significantly increase the speed of delivery while also providing opportunities for cost savings is seen as a strategy that’s particularly well-suited to address the issue. For instance, to address the severe lack of affordable housing in London, the city announced in 2017 that it would dedicate USD 32 million to construct a minimum of 1,059 affordably priced modular apartments by the year 2021.

Now, as technology has advanced and the industry has gained experience with it, the modular construction approach has become increasingly versatile and is used for a wide range of project types, including housing, education, healthcare, and hospitality commercial office, government, and retail. According to Modular Building Institute’s 2018 annual industry statistical report, in 2017 the permanent modular construction industry drove about USD 7 billion in construction activity. There are a few agencies that are providing modular construction services. For instance, The Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) has developed a strategy of using modular construction to rapidly respond to the urgent need for affordable housing in the city.

Modular Construction Market Segmentation Analysis

By material, the modular construction market is segmented into the wood, plastic, steel and precast concrete. Modular building components may be manufactured from a range of different materials including steel, concrete, and wood and can meet the requirements for Type-I, -II, -III, and -V construction. But the modular approach can be most readily applied in Type-II and Type-V construction.

Although wood-frame has been the most common type of modular construction, 70 % in 2017, according to the Modular Building Institute, over the past five years there has been a shift towards more steel-frame modular construction. This trend may in part be explained by the fact that modular construction is being used for taller buildings, where the preference is for steel for which it is most commonly used. As of now, the largest modular project in the Boston area, the new building includes four stories of wood-framed modular housing on a steel and concrete podium.

By the end-user, the modular construction market is classified into healthcare, housing, industrial and education. The global modular construction market size by education was worth USD YY million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.

By type, the modular construction market is divided into relocatable modular concrete and commercial permanent modular. The global modular construction market size by relocatable modular concrete was worth USD YY million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.

Global Modular Construction Market Geographical Share

The North America modular construction market size was worth USD YY million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.  North America is dominating the global modular construction market in 2020 and estimated to hold the largest market size over the forecast period due to the increasing construction activities and great support from the government, and, implementing different initiatives. For instance, in the spring of 2019, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development released a request for proposals for an affordable housing project in Brooklyn that requires modular construction methods. And according to Modular Building Institute, urban areas such as San Francisco, Seattle, and Vancouver are now considering modular construction as a means to address homelessness as well as to provide affordable housing for lower-and middle-income families.
