A recently revamped study by Fact.MR on the building information market forecasts that the industry is expected to reach US$ 19.97 Bn, growing at a CAGR of 12% from 2022-2032. According to the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), due to fast expansion in the United States, India, and China, the worldwide construction industry would rise by 85% to surpass US$15.5 trillion by 2030. Hence, monitoring solutions for these structures are gaining rapid momentum.
From 2017 to 2021, the market flourished at an 11% CAGR. During the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, growth prospects became restrained, as a global dip in the construction industry amid enforcement of lockdowns was experienced. However, since 2021, prospects have gradually widened, with the flattening of infection curves and fast-tracking of vaccination campaigns.
Construction is seeing unprecedented increase in terms of project complexity, as seen by the Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver, the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland, the Three Gorges Dam in China, the Shanghai Tower in China, and the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland. The creation of such complex buildings needs efficient and cost-effective planning and vision. Based on this assumption, the building information modelling industry will become an inescapable resource in the modern construction business.
