Economic downturn in major regions

The demand for modular construction is entirely dependent on the demand for new construction, which is directly related to the economic condition of any country, region, or the world as a whole. After the recession in the global financial market, the demand for new construction lost priority. Unemployment and low disposable income radically affected the GDPs of countries.


Increase in population and rapid urbanization translating to a large number of new construction projects

The ever-increasing population as well as industrial boom after the economic slowdown has given rise to new constructions, both commercial and residential. Moreover, the migration of rural population to urban areas and the conversion of towns into cities have further fueled the growth rate. According to the Population Reference Bureau, China, India, and other Asia Pacific countries accounted for a combined population exceeding 4.1 billion in 2016, while the Asia-Pacific Human Development Report published by United Nations Development Programme, projects that the total population in Asia Pacific to reach 4.84 billion by 2050, of which 64% is projected to be urban population. This is expected to rise demand for new construction projects, over the next two decades, owing to rapidly rising household incomes and the growing middle-class population. Asia Pacific is projected to witness the highest number of new constructions between 2017 and 2022. The construction spending during this period in China is expected to be 7.3%, by 2020; for India, it is expected to be 7%; while for Vietnam, it is expected to be 6.8% of the global construction spending, according to Asia Construction Outlook survey conducted by AECOM (US). The positive change in living standards and rapid urbanization are expected to shift the inclination of the suppliers and consumers toward modular construction.
