Saudi Arabia Prefabricated Building and Structural Steel Market Induced by Rising Demand for Urban Housing

Published on Jun 14, 2018

Prefabricated building is manufactured in standard portions off-site, and then shipped and assembled at the construction site. Structural steel, on the other hand, forms the skeletal framework of the building wherein the prefabricated parts are installed. These construction materials can be divided into two types, concrete-based and metal-based. Prefabricated buildings are not only popular in the commercial sector but are also gaining prominence in the residential segment. IMARC Group’s new research report, titled Saudi Arabia Prefabricated Building and Structural Steel Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024, estimates that the Saudi Arabia prefabricated building and structural steel market reached a value of more than US$ 1.5 Billion in 2018. The report further anticipates the market to reach a value of around US$ 2.0 Billion by 2024, at a projected CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period.

Saudi Arabia Prefabricated Building and Structural Steel Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • The unavailability of affordable housing owing to population growth along with an influx of expatriates has encouraged the demand for prefabricated homes in Saudi Arabia.
  • Prefabricated buildings are environment friendly in comparison to conventionally constructed buildings as they do not produce any on-site waste or require fuel for machines which emit harmful gases. Additionally, they are cost-effective, time- and energy-efficient and quick-to-install.
  • Rapid urbanization and upcoming infrastructural projects are projected to further provide a thrust to the market for prefabricated structures in Saudi Arabia during the forecast period.
  • Factors such as lack of financing options and durability issues are expected to hamper the market growth in the region.

Product Type Insights:

On the basis of type, the market has been categorised into prefabricated building and structural steel, wherein prefabricated building accounts for the majority of the total sales. This segment is further segregated into roofs and floors, walls, staircases, and panels and lintels. Amongst these, roofs and floors represent the largest segment. On the other hand, structural steel is divided into H-type beam, I-type beam, columns and angles. Currently, H-type beam dominates the market.

Application Insights:

Based on application, the residential sector dominates the market, holding the majority of the market share. A rise in the number of expatriates and rapid urbanization are some of the factors stimulating the growth of this segment. The residential sector is followed by the institutional, commercial and industrial sectors.
