    What is modular construction?

    Modular construction is a process in which the components of the building are constructed away from the site, whereas the installation of the prefabricated components is done on-site using cranes. Modular construction can be done with different types such as permanent and relocatable. They are used in different end-use sectors such as housing, commercial, education, healthcare, and industrial.

    Modular construction offers numerous advantages, which include:

    • Modular buildings can be built significantly faster compared to traditional stick-built structures. The prefabrication of components in controlled factory conditions eliminates delays and disruptions commonly encountered on conventional construction sites.
    • Modular buildings are often of superior quality when compared to traditional stick-built constructions. Manufacturing components in a factory using precise tools and techniques enables strict quality inspections before shipping them to the construction site.
    • Modular construction represents a more sustainable approach to building. These buildings require less energy during the construction process and can incorporate recycled materials, contributing to a reduced environmental impact.

    Market Dynamics

    These factors are expected to boost the demand for the global market in the coming years:

    • Infrastructure spending by the global and regional economies.
    • Further, spending on infrastructure and capital projects is estimated to increase substantially over the next decade.
    • China, India, and other countries in the Asia Pacific region, along with Brazil and South Africa, are investing enormously in the infrastructure industry, which is required for modernization and commercialization.
    • Rapid urbanization in emerging economies, such as Brazil, India, Malaysia, and Thailand is likely to fuel the spending for the major infrastructure sectors, such as power, construction, and transportation.
    • The improvement in economic conditions of emerging markets.
    • Governments worldwide are increasingly endorsing modular construction as a means to enhance sustainability and minimize construction waste.
    • The growing recognition of sustainable construction has elevated the prominence of modular construction as a more environmentally friendly alternative to conventional building techniques. Modular buildings consume less energy during construction and can be constructed using recycled materials.

    Restraints: Transportation and assembly risks in modular construction. Modular construction involves the transportation and assembly of prefabricated components from the factory to the building site, which can cause damage and high transit costs. Precision is crucial in modular construction, as it requires flawless alignment of beams, columns, walls, and floors. Improper assembly can lead to joint failure and leaks, posing a risk to the entire building.

    Opportunities: A surge in population and development will lead to an increase in the number of projects. The UN predicts a global population of over 9.3 billion by 2050, driven by an increasing population, industrial expansion, and the shift of rural populations to urban areas. This growth has fueled the growth of the modular construction market, with new construction in both commercial and residential sectors.

    Challenges: Insufficient awareness in developing economies. The construction industry is slow to adopt new technologies and has limited R&D budgets. The modular construction market has a positive outlook due to high growth. However, in developing countries like Asia, the Pacific, Africa, and South America, people are less aware of modular construction and its benefits. They perceive modular buildings as short-lived or unsuitable for natural disasters. To grow the industry, it's crucial to educate customers about the positive environmental effects and healthy lifestyle benefits of modular construction.
