The construction industry increasingly faces trends that may not be under its direct control but do have a marked effect on it. Some of those are long-term developments, such as a higher awareness of the climate, increasing urbanization, technological innovations, or new trends and types of construction – such as modular construction. On top of that, current challenges such as inflation and the high cost of construction materials, skilled staff and material shortages, supply chain disruption, and the coronavirus pandemic have deeply shaped the industry in the past years. If, in addition to that, the current climate of economic instability is considered, there is no doubt that the construction sector will need to be resilient to stay ahead of these uncertain times.
