Market Dynamics

Growth of the commercial and residential construction industry increases the demand for construction 4.0 concepts. For instance, in September 2021, Germany planned to build 285,900 residential houses by 2030. Hence, Germany's expanding construction sector is one of the key drivers of the country's economic recovery, and as a result, the construction 4.0 industry will grow in the forecast period. In addition, the use of technologies, such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and others, in the construction industry helps to monitor, analyze, and capture information in real-time and reduce facility services costs.

For instance, sensors, 3D printing, and IoT are being used for indoor navigation, maintenance, security, and smart meeting rooms. Such trends drive construction 4.0 industry growth. For instance, in November 2022, Trimble and the Hilti Group, a global leader providing innovative tools, technology, software, and services to the commercial construction industry, has launched its new Hilti ON!Track asset management system will integrate with Trimble Viewpoint Vista, an ERP solution within the Trimble Construction One suite.

Growth during the construction 4.0 market is constrained by a lack of skilled workers and human resources in developing nations. For instance, in emerging nations such as China and India, roughly 48% of individuals still lack literacy. The number of adult illiterates in developing nations including South Asia, West Asia, and Africa is over 781 million.

Moreover, increased security threats in connected devices are restraining market growth. For instance, in January 2023, an article published on ETCIO website by Check Point Research (CPR) company has released new data in 2022 cyber-attack trends showing that global cyber-attacks increased by 38% in 2022, compared to 2021.This compromises the confidentiality and integrity of the data. Such instances hinder the market growth.

The demand for construction 4.0 market has decreased in 2020, owing to low demand from different regions due to lockdown imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down production of infrastructure development, building construction and other sectors for the end-user, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major countries globally. This has hampered the growth of the market significantly during the pandemic.

The major demand for market was previously noticed from giant countries including China, the U.S., Germany, Spain, and the UK, which was badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for market. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of the manufacturing industry at its full-scale capacities, which is projected to help the construction 4.0 market to recover by end of 2022.

Rise in awareness in developing countries, such as India, Brazil, Russia, and others, are focusing on adopting new construction-related technologies, such as IoT, robot, BIM, and others, to assess knowledge about construction 4.0 technologies. There is rise in adoption of digital technologies in construction activities due to features such as avoiding repetitive work and human error. New technologies, such as 3D scanning, building information modeling, augmented reality, and drones, are used in construction activities. For instance, in June 2022, Government initiatives, such as smart advanced manufacturing, rapid transformation hub (SAMARTH), and Udyog Bharat 4.0 in India, are implemented to strengthen the competition. Such instances are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the  construction 4.0 market growth.

Analyst Review

The global construction 4.0 market witnessed a huge demand in North America followed by Europe. The highest share of the North America market is attributed to increasing demand for infrastructure development by means of smart construction including IoT, artificial intelligence, asset monitoring and other software in residential and non-residential construction.

The construction industry is digitizing by adopting information and communication technology (ICT). Digitization in the construction industry is termed construction 4.0. Construction 4.0 uses concepts such as IoT, 3D printing, virtual reality, and others. This technology includes the use of design, construction, and operation to improve productivity. The use of technologies, such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and others, in the construction industry, is driving the construction 4.0 market. In addition, the growth of the commercial and residential construction industry increases the demand for construction 4.0 concepts. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, in February 2021, 1,769,000 housing units went under construction, which is a 6.8% increase from the revised January estimate of 1,657,000 housing units. Such instances are expected to drive the market.

However, lack of skilled labor, less capital in developing countries, and absence of security to avoid cyber-attacks on connected devices are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, a rise in awareness about construction 4.0 technologies and technological advancement are projected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the construction 4.0 market.
