IoT in Construction Market by Application (Machine Control, Site Monitoring, Fleet Management, Wearables, and Others), End User (Residential and Non-residential), and Component (Hardware, Software, Connectivity, and Services): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027
The global IoT in construction market size is expected to reach $19,039.8 million in 2027, from $8,179.9 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 14.0% from 2020 to 2027. The Internet of Things (IoT) has penetrated in nearly all major industries as well as the human way of living. It has also been transforming the construction industry significantly with the integration of new technologies not only in construction activities such as plastering, bricklaying, surveying, and others, but also in construction site management, asset tracking, worker tracking, and risk management. The inclusion of internet connected devices such as equipment monitoring sensors, smart wearables, building information modelling (BIM) software, RFID tagging & tracking, and others have made it possible to reduce the wastage of resources, decreasing the number of accidents and fatalities occurring on construction sites, as well as remote monitoring and data collection, which has resulted in surged productivity and optimization of monetary resources. For instance, the adoption of wearable technologies such as smart helmet, smart glasses, sensible wearables, and others has augmented workplace satisfaction by 3.5% and propelled productivity by 8.5% on construction sites.
Efficient safety management on construction sites is a major driving factor for implementation of IoT technologies in the construction industry. The industry is one of the major employers of human resources. These workers are constantly prone to accidents on sites due to falling objects, fatigue, working on dangerous areas, and others. Use of IoT connected devices such as exoskeletons, sensors, smart watches, and others assist in increasing endurance of a worker, and track biological, physical, and environmental conditions such as temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, location, and others. Thus, efficient safety management on construction sites due to use of connected devices is driving the growth of IoT in construction market. Moreover, augmented productivities and proper resource management also boost the growth of the IoT in construction market. Use of sensors, radio-frequency Identification (RFID) tags, and others help in obtaining real-time data regarding inventory, workers, and on-site activities, which reduce operational downtime and optimize resource planning using digital platforms such as building information modelling (BIM). For instance, according to the study conducted by the construction equipment company Caterpillar, Inc. based in the U.S., the use of IoT technology in the earthmoving activity on site can result in 40% reduction in fuel consumption, 36% decline in total manhours, and 40% reduction in project phase duration. Hence, the advantage of bolstered productivity on construction sites drive the growth of IoT in construction industry.
However, rise in concerns regarding cyber security is hindering the penetration of IoT technologies in the construction industry. Confidentiality and data integrity are an important part of construction projects and centralized data collection possesses’ risks of data theft and monetary damages to not only construction companies but also the customers. Hence, security threats in connected devices is likely to restrain the growth of the IoT in construction market.
On the contrary, better resource management and waste optimization is likely to create opportunities for propelling the growth of the market in the near future. Data-driven decision-making at the planning stage of construction projects is likely to anticipate better management of resources; thereby, improving project efficiency.
