The UK market for panelised modular building systems is estimated to be worth some £753m in 2019.
Within the definition of this report the market 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 (SIPS) and cross laminated timber (CLT) systems.

Historically, there has been a reluctance among many clients and specifiers, especially in the private housebuilding sector, to using both panelised and volumetric building methods, which has acted as a constraint on potential growth.
Since 2015, industry performance has improved, mostly due to the recovery in the construction industry as a whole and key end sectors including housebuilding, offices and entertainment and leisure. A shift towards greater sustainability and energy-conservation may also have stimulated demand in this market.
