Evolving government incentives worldwide are further propelling this market into the forefront of sustainable initiatives. However, the real power lies in the anticipated growth and investment in infrastructure across developing economies, making this a market that simply cannot be overlooked in forward-facing business strategy. The future of construction lies in innovative, sustainable, and efficient methods - don’t miss your opportunity to understand and leverage these industry shifts.

The global panelized modular building systems market is estimated to reach over USD 100,072 million by the end of this year. It is projected to register a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and the first half of 2021 drastically curtailed the global construction sector due to imposed government bans and restrictions, thereby limiting the panelized modular building systems market growth. Residential real estate was the worst hit as strict lockdown measures across significant cities resulted in the suspension of home registrations and slow home loan disbursements. However, the construction sector has been recovering well since restrictions were lifted. An increase in house sales, new project launches, and increasing demand for new offices and commercial spaces have been leading the market recovery.

Key Highlights

  • Over the medium term, the rising demand for off-site construction and increasing demand for structural insulated panels in energy-efficient prefabricated homes are the major driving factors augmenting the growth of the market studied. Furthermore, favorable government incentives and policies supporting energy-efficient building construction are propelling the project contractors to incorporate panelized building systems in new and renovation constructions.
  • On the flip side, the requirement of transportation logistics to bring the prefabricated materials on-site is the key factor anticipated to restrain the growth of the target industry over the forecast period.
  • Nevertheless, the increasing investment in infrastructure and commercial constructions in developing economies and the implementation of building information modeling (BIM) will likely create lucrative growth opportunities for the global market soon.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the bullish demand for roof panels, floor panels, wall modules, and various other products in the residential, commercial, industrial, and infrastructure sectors.

Panelized Modular Building Systems Market Trends

Residential Segment to Dominate the Market

  • The residential industry is the primary end-user industry for the global panelized modular building systems market. These systems offer design flexibility and precision in building with controlled costs and reduced construction time. This advantage goes well with the growing demand for permanent housing and rising preference for a shorter delivery time of construction projects.
  • Factors like minimized hassles due to reduced debris from home construction and demolition activities, home builders’ continued pursuit of maintaining a profitable construction pace, and growing awareness toward the construction of energy-efficient residential places which are in perfect sync with the prefabricated construction practices are driving the market penetration of the panelized modular building systems in the residential segment.
  • The rising number of migrants in the United States and European countries has increased the pressure on existing residential infrastructure. Hence, these countries, dwelling with advanced infrastructure and real estate spaces, are witnessing a gradual lead in reconstruction and renovation projects and new residential constructions.
