SUMMARY OF REPORT CONTENTS
The UK market for panelised modular building systems, within the definition of this report, consists of pre-fabricated, 2-dimensional frames or panels in systems for constructing walls, partitions, roofs and floors, typically supplied to site as systems in flat-pack format. However, some systems, particularly light steel frame, are supplied to site in 'stick' form and/or direct to manufacturers of volumetric building systems. The main product type is timber frame, competing with light gauge steel, precast concrete and other engineered wood-based panels. This latter group includes structural insulated panels (often made from oriented strand board) and cross laminated timber systems.
Following a fall in demand between 2008 and 2012, demand for offsite building systems has increased, underpinned by the improved economic situation, increased levels of activity in the housebuilding, hotel, student accommodation and education sectors. In 2015, it is estimated that market growth was around 10% compared to the previous year. Difficult market conditions in recent years have led to all sectors of the panelised building systems industry suffering a number of business failures, leading to a reduction in production capacities. In the timber frame sector, market supply has become much more polarised.
Key end use sectors for panelised modular building systems are houses, apartment blocks, schools, budget hotels, smaller healthcare and care facilities and purpose built student accommodation. Housing developers, other main construction firms and housing associations are generally declaring intentions to increase usage of offsite systems. Other than the volume housebuilding sector, the Government has indicated it would so see an increase from around 12,000 to 20,000 self-built homes a year by 2020, self-builders being key users of timber frame and SIPS. While timber frame is the most widely used type of offsite systems in housing, over the next few years, it is expected to face stiff competition from cross laminated timber.
Over the next few years to 2020, a sustained recovery should be witnessed, enhanced by the mandatory use of Building Information Modelling on public sector projects from 2016 and a forecast increase in the use of offsite systems in housebuilding. BIM will streamline building design, procurement and construction which should favour the use of offsite building. The drive towards sustainable development, coupled with the need to meet energy efficiency and carbon reduction targets, would also seem to weigh in favour of offsite construction. In addition, some of the key drivers for offsite construction are coming back into focus, for example any larger scale, repetitive construction programme, such as those with university accommodation, social housing on a reasonable scale, affordable private sector housing, the demographic shift to more but smaller households, the growth of budget hotels etc.
