As a result, supervisors may accomplish their duties quickly and are notified of all the elements of a project. These benefits offered by IoT adoption in construction sector are supporting market growth.

Rising adoption of construction robotics offering growth prospects

Construction robotics is the practice of carrying out construction tasks automatically with the aid of construction robots or automated construction machinery. It is employed in tasks including constructing and destroying infrastructures for homes, businesses, and industries. Construction tasks now involve less or no human interaction due to construction robotics. Although robotics has been employed in the construction industry for some time, very few commercial robots are still being deployed there. As a result, the market share for IoT in construction is expected to increase as demand for robotics in construction rises.

Market Restraining Factors

More dependence on conventional methods

In the construction industry, digitization is lesser than in other industries. The construction industry experiences low productivity due to a lack of digitization. Large-scale building projects frequently conclude later than originally planned and incur additional costs, reducing contractors' financial returns. Since most of the work is done on paper, there's not much coordination between the office and the field regarding project planning. This, in turn, leads to inefficient management of the supply chain. This disparity may present a problem for companies with a foothold in the market.
