    Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures market report transcript

    Global Market Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures Outlook 

    • The global PEMB industry is likely to grow at CAGR of 5 percent from 2019 to 2022, mainly driven by the residential and warehousing demand
    • APAC holds the maximum market share of prefabricated buildings (~50 percent) in terms of revenue mainly due to high economic growth rate and urbanization in emerging countries such as India, China, and Indonesia
    • One of the major segments boosting the demand for PEMB structures is warehousing. In 2019, 7.5 percent of the total retail sales globally was done through online mode and this is expected to grow up to 13 percent by 2021
    • As PEB comes with wide space and huge floors, with fewer columns and bars for interruptions, its great concept and helpful for many enterprises who want such requirements. PEB also allows for greater reusability of building materials with almost 95 percent of the material recycled and reused

    Global Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures Market Overview

    Key Growth Drivers for pre-engineered buildings market

    • Increased focus towards green building:Various construction companies across the globe are taking initiatives to reduce the energy consumption levels in their buildings and achieve green building certifications such as LEED (the US Green Building Council's certification) and BREEAM (the UK-based Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). There are various technologies that make PEMB a less waste producing and energy consuming process ad compared to traditional construction
    • Eco-friendly:PEBs are eco-friendly as its components are manufactured from cold formed sheet steel. Since steel is one of the world's most recycled material, therefore, depending on the manufacturing process, close to 95 percent of the components of a newly manufactured steel product can be recycled.
    • Better adoption of BIM: Increased adoption of BIM across various nations has also triggered the usage of prefabricated construction, as BIM would make the design flow easier and provides data-centric information based on the design, specification, and construction issues. In addition to all the other benefits, the usage of BIM to track time, errors, and the cost is a major benefit driving the pre-engineered buildings market in all regions
    • Warehousing needs: The high growth in retail e-commerce sector has triggered a huge demand for warehouses across the globe. There is an increased  inclination towards the use of prefabricated steel buildings to meet the  warehousing needs, as it saves a lot of time and cost given for the fixed design of a warehouse. Due to this increasing demand, the pre-engineered building market has seen a lot of local, small players enter into the prefabrication market

    Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures Suppliers


    • The PEMB supply base is dominated by huge global and regional players, working both in domestic and international pre-engineered building markets
    • The regional players have a comparable service portfolio and service capability, which can match the global counterparts. Additionally, the regional suppliers can ensure proper delivery of projects, due to the local operational experience and knowledge.
    • Suppliers network through a chain of authorized contractors across regions.
    •  Switching cost for buyers in pre-construction phase is low compared to the conventional construction.
    • As the construction scales up, there might be a decline in the buyer power, due to the low availability of capable service providers.
    •  Fixed costs are low, but achieving all facets of supply chain as bigger players might be difficult.
    • There has been consolidation among suppliers in the PEMB sector in the last few years, which include many small local and regional firms

    Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures Cost Structure and Price Drivers

    Raw Material

    • Steel is one of the major raw material in a PEMB building and even a small fluctuation in price would affect the final price of the building.
    • The manufacturing location of the pre-engineered metal buildings structure is also a strong determinant of the cost of the pre-engineered steel buildings structure.
    •  The demand-supply situation for steel in the country would impact the steel price. E.g., If the domestic production is unable to meet the demand, then the price is bound to increase as the shortage would be sufficed through the steel import from other countries, which would definitely be higher than the domestic price.

    Other Factors

    • The other factors resulting in price increases would be the extent of infrastructure facility in the construction location, which would impact the logistics cost
    • There are several anti-dumping duties imposed by western countries  on Chinese imports which is a key cost parameter
    • The choice of contracting method has a huge impact on the final cost.  Choosing a broker who bids from manufacturer would increase cost.  It would be best to contract directly with the manufacturer thereby  enabling better control over the final product

    Pre-Fabricated Buildings & Structures Technological Trends

    Designing is one of the most critical aspects of PEMB. Designing is done by using various software like MBS, Staad Pro, E-TAB with consideration of seismic zones, design codes, loading factor, wind speed etc. A major shift seen from 2D to 3D detailing of PEB Buildings. Also, in recent times, 3D BIM modeling (Building Information Modeling) is the most emerging technology that is used by all major PEB Companies. Once the design is done, BIM software like TEKLA is used for modeling.
