Evolution of the Buildings Industry Supply Chain in Asia-Pacific

Evolution of the Buildings Industry Supply Chain in Asia-Pacific

The building industry will undergo substantial changes in both technology and processes in the coming years.

Increasing awareness for energy conservation and the necessity to protect the environment will bring about a paradigm shift in the building industry practices.

This shift will be focused on reducing wastage, saving time and money, and reducing environmental degradation.

The growth in the prominence of sustainable buildings, modular homes, and sustainability reporting are compelling the building industry supply chain participants to adopt green practices.

Among the latest technological advancements, “building printing” has the ability to completely revolutionize the entire construction industry and increase the possibilities for affordable housing.

Cloud-based building information modeling (BIM), and virtual and augmented reality will change the way buildings are being designed, built, and operated.

New building materials such as hempcrete, self-healing concrete, and mycelium brick have the potential to significantly impact the industry as well.
