The 7th edition of the ' Prefabricated Volumetric Building Systems Market Report - UK 2016-2020 Analysis ' reviews the market in terms of overall structure, main trends, key product sectors, end user sectors, specification issues and suppliers. Products analysed range from simple jack-leg cabins and welfare units through to complex structures assembled from large numbers of 3-D modules, and for the first time, this edition has been expanded to include pre-fabricated park and holiday homes.

The UK market for volumetric modular buildings and portable accommodation has improved over the last couple of years, underpinned by recovery in the general economy and in non-domestic construction, and is estimated to have grown 5% during 2015. AMA Research-s estimates for this market exclude bathroom and kitchen -pods-. Between 2008 and 2013, market values declined, but since 2013 there has been some improvement in the market, underpinned by demand for site accommodation on major infrastructure projects and in the events sector, and recovery in key applications for offsite construction e.g. student accommodation, schools, convenience stores.
Products are broadly split between permanent and semi-permanent buildings, on the one hand, which are usually constructed from two or more modules, and portable accommodation. The latter sector mostly comprises a wide range of single module products hired or leased for short periods. Other important areas of demand for volumetric buildings are the healthcare sector, healthcare, social housing apartments, sports facilities and commercial offices. Between 2005 and 2013, by far the largest application for volumetric construction had been MoD single living accommodation, driven by major building programmes, notably Project SLAM and Project Allenby/Connaught. However, the end of these contributed towards a sharp downturn in the industry as a whole.
Over the medium term, a sustained recovery in the sector key drivers is expected to sustain demand. However, the sector offering the most potential is one where penetration rates for volumetric construction remain low - i.e. housing. The ongoing shortage in new housing being built each year, which is way below the aspirational targets of the government, coupled with shortages of skilled tradesmen has been widely recognised as part of the solution. One other key factor expected to drive up demand for offsite construction is Building Information Modelling which, from April 2016, will become mandatory for public sector building projects. A key advantage with BIM is that it can streamline building design, procurement, construction and maintenance processes. It should facilitate standardisation in design, where required, and in turn favour the use of offsite construction. BIM will also enable sustainable energy and building approaches to be incorporated from the outset, which ought to favour volumetric buildings as these have better airtightness properties than traditional constructions.
Distribution channels include direct sales to end users and main contractors and the hire / leasing market. The hire sector comprises dedicated hire divisions or subsidiaries of manufacturers of modular building systems, independent companies specialising in the hire /rental of temporary accommodation and general plant hire companies. The industry has experienced major changes in recent years, characterised by contraction and consolidation in the non-domestic sector, while the potential offered by housing attracts new entrants.
