The financial crisis back in 2008 has left the construction industry scarred. But it has also opened up for new opportunities and threats, including mega trends that now establishes the current construction and materials market. Some of these mega trends are new emerging markets, urbanization, demographics (growing middle class), international regulations, consumer demand and emerging technologies.
More people are urbanizing which means that there’s high demand for construction materials. International regulations are pushing many segments of society to go green, which results in a higher demand for materials that support and promote a clean and sustainable environment. Energy efficiency is therefore at the very top of the agenda of stakeholders across the value chain.
Construction projects today are evolving faster than ever. Buildings are getting taller, bridges are getting wider, and urban centers are desiring smarter cities. Technology in infrastructure helps enable advanced designs in the planning and construction of mega projects. Some of these technologies include drones, robotics, automation, advanced data and analytics.
