It was followed by North America, Western Europe, and then the other regions. Going forward, the fastest-growing regions in the nonresidential building construction market will be Africa and Asia Pacific, where growth will be at CAGRs of 17.3% and 9.2% respectively. These will be followed by Eastern Europe and South America where the markets are expected to grow at CAGRs of 8.92% and 8.86% respectively, during 2021-2026.
Nonresidential building construction companies are increasingly using green construction techniques to build energy efficient buildings and reduce construction costs. Green construction refers to the practice of using sustainable building materials and construction processes to create energy-efficient buildings with minimal environmental impact. According to the World Green Building Trends Survey, about 60% of construction firms across the globe were involved in green construction projects. Certifications such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) help construction companies to develop high-performance, sustainable residential and commercial buildings, and also offer a variety of benefits, from tax deductions to marketing opportunities. Sustainable construction materials such as natural paints and steel beams made from recycled material are being widely used in the UK. Other green construction techniques such as cross-ventilation for a more natural environment, green construction software such as Construction Suite to ensure green compliance, and Green Globes management tool are also being used in the construction industry.
Advanced Technology = Efficiency
Nonresidential building construction companies are using robotics for increasing productivity, to get work done quicker, cheaper and with more precise detail. Construction robots are automated machines that assist in construction. Technology from San Francisco startup Built Robotics lets construction machinery such as diggers and dozers operate autonomously. A growing array of robotic equipment can take over specialized construction tasks including welding, drilling, and brick-laying. For instance, more than four out of five (81%) of the world's construction companies say they are planning to introduce robots into their operations during the coming decade, partly in response to a growing skills crisis being experienced by 91% of them.
