Pre-Engineered buildings (PEB) are metal enclosure structures made in a factory by a structural frame, standard roof, and wall support and are erected at the site. The complete designing of the building is done at the factory site, and the components are brought to the site in the knock-down condition. The concept drastically reduces construction time, increases cost-effectiveness, and maintains a high-quality infrastructure with less maintenance. Compared to traditional infrastructures, the pre-engineered building offers many advantages, including reduced project construction time by about 50%, low cost, and easily expanded. Better quality controls need lower maintenance, energy-efficient roofing and wall systems, and architectural versatility. Moreover, the Pre-engineered steel buildings can be fitted with various structural accessories such as mezzanine floors, interior partitions, canopies, and fascia and are made waterproof using special mastic beads, trims, and filler strips.

For instance, Amazon has constructed many fulfillment centers using pre-engineered steel building systems. These buildings are designed to maximize space and efficiency for the storage and distribution of products. Other key players in various sectors, including Tesla, Walmart, FedEx, and others have been leveraging the multiple benefits of new-age buildings. The Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada, which produces electric vehicle batteries and components, was constructed using pre-engineered building systems. The building has a footprint of 1.9 million square feet and is one of the largest pre-engineered buildings in the world.

The covid-19 pandemic hurts the pre-engineered building market owing to severe disruptions in manufacturing and supply chain operations due to precautionary lockdowns imposed by the government in various countries. Moreover, the market has been further hampered by the scarcity of migrant labor in construction sites and decreased demand for the real estate market among consumers during the pandemic.

The restraining factors for the market can be attributed to lower thermal conductivity, vulnerability to corrosion, and lack of fire resistance in pre-engineered buildings. Further, the market growth can be retarded by the fluctuating cost of raw materials and other demand-supply fluctuations constraints.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The higher utilization of pre-engineered buildings across various end-use applications owing to its multiple benefits has remained the most promising factor for pre-engineered buildings market growth in the forecast period. Generally, pre-engineered building systems find application in the construction of warehouses, industrial sheds, and buildings. While with the advancement of technology, the adoption rate for building systems has increased in various areas, such as pharmaceutical industries and others, in the last few years. Multiple applications include houses, living shelters, factories, sports halls, warehouses, supermarkets, aircraft hangers, office buildings, workshops, petrol pumps, community centers, railway stations, schools, and equipment housing/shelters.

The second most vital factor driving the pre-engineered buildings market is the huge need for warehouses by various e-retailers and other players. Rapid urbanization backed by better standard of living has increased the demand for different products in almost all regions.

In recent years, e-commerce has witnessed a significant revolution with better internet penetration and financial inclusion among the populations in developed and developing economies. For instance, as per U.S. Department of Commerce, the total estimate for U.S. retail e-commerce sales was about $ 1,034.1 billion in 2022, an increase of 7.7 percent from 2021. Increasing online trading of various commodities such as apparel, food and beverages, groceries, and others requires a proper warehouse to store the materials securely.

The Single-story segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

Increasing non-residential infrastructure such as healthcare, recreational, educational, and retail has increased the demand for single-story pre-engineered buildings. Rising investments in infrastructural, industrial, and logistics constructions further drive the need. In addition, the lower price of single-story buildings and architectural flexibility support the segment over the forecast period.

While the multi-story segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate in the forecasted period, owing to the rise in the adoption of pre-engineered buildings for big retail outlets, offices, and other building projects.

The steel segment is accounted to witness the fastest CAGR in the forecasted period.

The major factors supporting the growth of the Steel segment can be poised to its many advantages over traditional construction methods, including cost savings, quick construction time, durability, and versatility. Using pre-engineered building components can result in cost savings for the customer compared to traditional construction methods. The pieces are manufactured in a controlled environment, which reduces waste and labor costs. In addition, it can be used for various purposes, including warehouses, manufacturing facilities, offices, and retail spaces, making it a favorable material for building use.

The warehouses and industrial segment is anticipated witness the highest CAGR in the forecast period.

The strong consumer demand for various products has increased the growth of manufacturing, e-commerce, and logistics sectors over the last few years. The expansion further caters to the need for factories, R&D centers, production plants, warehouses, and distribution centers, which require pre-engineered buildings.

The analysis has projected the infrastructure segment to witness the second-highest growth rate in the market. Factors behind the growth can be addressed by increasing government expenditures for building metro station sheds, airport terminal buildings, airport hangers, shipyards, and footbridges.

Pre-Engineered Building Seg

Asia Pacific region is leading the market in terms of revenue share for the year 2022
