Global modular construction market was valued at $ 102 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 5.5% to surpass $ 142.5 billion by 2024, owing to rising demand for complex structures at affordable rates along with rapid urbanization and industrialization. Modular construction is a term used to describe the use of factory-produced pre-engineered building units that are delivered to site and assembled as large volumetric components or as substantial elements of a building. The modular units may form complete rooms, parts of rooms, or separate highly serviced units such as toilets or lifts. Completed modules are delivered to the site and pieced together to form a finished building.

Spending on infrastructure is a major driver for global modular construction market. It is anticipated that the spending on infrastructure and capital projects would grow significantly over the next few years. India, China and other countries in Asia-Pacific are investing considerably in the infrastructure market. Moreover, modular construction reduces build time by 30-50%. The process is cost-effective due to less labor involved in on-site activities. Thus, the need for time saving construction methods is widening the growth scope of global modular construction market.

In terms of material, global modular construction market is categorized into steel, precast concrete, wood, plastic, aluminium and others. Of all, precast concrete captured majority of global modular construction market in 2018 and is expected to continue its dominance throughout forecast period as well. The category is also predicted to witness the fastest growth during forecast period.
