Trends within the global construction market
have evolved at a rapid pace over the past few decades. Progress in technology, significant improvements in construction techniques, and use of superior grades of raw materials are some of the factors that have boosted the construction market in the past few years. While economic factors remain pivotal in the growth of the construction sector across the world, the rapidly growing global population is expected to create a substantial demand for heavy & civil engineering as well as general construction worldwide. According to a publication released by the World Economic Forum, the global urban population is increasing by around 200,000 per day. Furthermore, the publication also stated that the global urban population is expected to grow past the 6 billion mark by 2045, which in turn is expected to put significant pressure on the construction market.
In the report, TMR predicts that the construction market would be largely driven by factors, such as rise in population and investments in infrastructure. Increase in demand for multifunctional characteristics of construction products, use of artificial intelligence, and a streamlined supply chain are expected to drive the construction market during the forecast period.
According to the construction market report, the type segment includes heavy & civil engineering (bridges, roads, railways, airports, and others (sewage, under bridges, etc.), general construction (residential, commercial, industrial), and others (specialty trades, maintenance, etc.) Based on type, the heavy and civil engineering segment accounts for major share. The development of transport infrastructure in various countries contributes maximum to this segment. Maximum investment is for building roads, bridges, and rail lines. The segment is projected to expand at a significant rate in the near future.

In terms of general construction, the residential segment accounts for maximum share of the market. It is estimated to maintain its dominant position during the forecast period. Various housing policies, low interest on loans, and increasing population are key factors responsible for the expansion of the residential segment. Urbanization, modernization, and rise in population are factors leading to infrastructure investments, which is boosting the global construction market.
Construction companies are expanding their business to new geographies. The construction market is strongly dependent on the economy and spending power of consumers. Various construction companies have adopted a lean approach to increase efficiency and maintain stability. These factors are estimated to drive the construction market during the forecast period. Shortage of skilled labor, rise in raw material cost, changing political conditions, growing environmental concerns, and lack of investment are restrains of the construction market.
