Market outlook of the dry construction market

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global dry construction market to grow steadily at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period. The growing demand for prefabricated construction is one of the primary drivers of the market. Pre-fabricated structures have become popular among construction companies as they help in saving costs and time. The use of dry construction is increasing in the market as it helps in improving the construction speed without requiring additional time for drying the materials.

However, the flammable property of some of the dry construction materials such as timber is a major challenge that the market faces. Timber is highly flammable and catches fire quickly, making it a less preferred choice in places such as restaurants and kitchens.
