US demand for prefabricated nonresidential building systems will grow 9.6 percent annually through 2007. Metal buildings will remain dominant, supported by a rebound in industrial, office and retail construction. Nonmetal types will nearly match the pace of metal, led by modular systems used in commercial and office structures.
This study analyzes the $13.8 billion US prefabricated nonresidential building industry. It presents historical demand data for 1992, 1997 and 2002 and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by type (e.g., metal buildings and components, nonmetal modular buildings, panelized precast concrete, prefabricated precast concrete, autoclaved aerated concrete, pre-engineered fabric); by market and by US region.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 22 leading competitors including NCI Building Systems, Butler Manufacturing, MAGNATRAX, Grupo IMSA, and Robertson-Ceco.
