According to the market study conducted by experts of Roland Berger GMBH, the prefabricated housing market volume and price are expected to be favorably driven by a number of trends. It’s promising to projects like BERTIM.

The study has been focused on following regions: Germany, Scandinavia, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Austria and Poland. According to scientists study, among 1+2 family housing, prefabricated housing is expected to gain in relevance, growing at c.3% p.a. from 2017 to 2022. Prefabricated housing growth is expected to outpace the 1+2 family housing market.

Geographically, absolute growth is projected to be driven by Germany, the UK and Scandinavia.

In Poland, prefabricated housing is currently assumed to be less popular than in other focus regions .

All data presented above is significant to supporters and beneficiaries of BERTIM, as the project elaborates solutions strictly connected with prefabricated housing market reality.
