World Prefabricated Housing

Growth in key Asia/Pacific market to slow

According to World Prefabricated Housing, a study from The Freedonia Group, the Asia/Pacific region, which accounts for the vast majority of prefabricated housing demand, is expected to post gains slightly below the global average through 2019. In the two largest global markets for prefabricated housing -- China and India -- demand is expected to slow through 2019. In China, temporary housing is widely used to house construction workers, but demand for this type of housing is forecast to decline as construction activity throughout the country decelerates. Slowing construction of new housing units will restrict demand gains for prefabricated housing in India going forward.

Historically, Japan was a major market for prefabricated housing but demand will grow at a pace below the global average through 2019 as the country’s overall residential construction market is not expected to perform well. However, prefabricated housing’s share of new housing units in Japan has risen since 2004, and is expected to continue to do so through 2019.

Manufactured housing’s share of new housing units to decline slightly

Manufactured housing accounts for the majority of prefabricated housing demand in the US, but demand for these homes has been declining since the late 1990s, when liberalized lending standards made conventional housing more affordable for lower-income homebuyers. During the housing market collapse over the 2006-2011 period, manufactured housing’s market penetration actually increased due to its lower cost. As the US housing market began its recovery, manufactured housing’s penetration began to fall again. Through 2019, continued growth in US housing demand will increase sales of prefabricated housing, but its share of new housing units will decline slightly.
