Remote Construction Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Remote Construction Market by Component – Solution and Services for 2020 – 2030


Amid the ongoing pandemic, work from home has become the new normal. The construction industry too is facing this challenge as leading players gear to fulfil the necessities of projects underway while ensuring health and wellness of their workers.

However, experts are of the view that a significant number of companies within the industry are either not prepared or lack experience required for working remotely. Construction companies are heavily reliant on person-to-person communication. Adjusting to remote-work environment is therefore putting pressure on smaller firms. Remote construction is being touted as a pragmatic solution, and a new analysis by Future Market Insights (FMI) opines market growth to be 14.2% CAGR.

Digitization Creating Growth Opportunities

Organizations today are finding themselves engulfed in an increasingly complex world of networks. As data generated continues to rise in a staggering volumes, automation has become imperative for enterprises in order to optimize costs and scale of experiences they wish to create.

Construction sector companies are looking for solutions to manage applications, mobile devices, and a range of other collaborative tools to ensure seamless communication between teams across platforms, devices, and geographies. All this are looked upon with an intent of transforming the ways employees conduct their daily businesses.

The construction industry is shifting from a desktop-bound approach to a multi-disciplinary model. This change is steered by dynamic IT trends and the surging uptake of cloud-based solutions.

In the future, the construction sector as well is likely to be driven by highly virtualized and cloud-based environments. This change is inevitable and construction companies are centralizing their IT to accommodate the dynamic trends.

Urbanization at Core of Transition

Rapid urbanization has resulted in congested landscape, causing unprecedented climate change, water scarcity, soaring energy consumption, and various other economic and social concerns. According to the United Nations, the global urban population is expected to increase from 54% in 2015 to 70% by 2050.

The expansion of urban areas will translate into greater opportunities for construction businesses. Against this backdrop, experts also forecast the rising demand for remote construction services and solutions.

The surging urban population will have considerable impact on residential and commercial infrastructure. Governments are therefore posed with the challenge of managing the influx of new occupants, while improving living standards.

This will ultimately boost the adoption of digital transformation ecosystems, especially to meet social, financial, and environmental outcomes. Some of the leading companies are focusing on the novel technology also to ensure optimum utilization of available resources to offer a healthy lifestyle and superior connectivity.

Surging Adoption of Smart Devices

The surging ubiquity of smartphones, tablets, and various other smart devices has been compelling the construction sector to integrate digital technologies. This has become of key significant in order to meet the rising demand for effective remote operations and management.

Companies are leveraging novel technologies and smart solutions to offer holistic services to the entire ecosystem. The surging adoption of IoT solutions is creating impressive scope for the remote construction market growth. Various companies are even focusing on customizing construction management solutions as per client requirement.

Key Challenges

As the construction industry witnesses crippling impacts of the Coronavirus outbreak, a large number of companies are either compelled to shut down their operations or in best-case scenario, limit their activities.

Against this backdrop, remote working is stating its presence in the construction sector, leading many companies to bid adieu to set practices and instead adopt new technologies for working and communicating with their workforce.

Remote construction is a new reality but it poses significant challenges to companies around the world as they struggle to manage construction sites, while keeping their workforce connected.

For smaller companies investing in novel digital tools could be a problem. Even for larger enterprises training their ground-level task during the pandemic might spur significant challenges.
