The Modular Building Institute (MBI) – the world’s largest trade association for the commercial modular construction industry – has released its 2021 annual industry reports

The reports contain a complete overview of the commercial modular construction industry – both permanent and relocatable – and include exclusive data from member companies around the world.

These reports cover permanent modular construction, relocatable buildings, and a complete overview of the Canadian modular construction industry.

For these reports, MBI gathered statistical information about the size and growth of the commercial modular construction industry. These reports have become the leading source of information on the industry and are used worldwide by investment firms, banks, the media, researchers, consultants, and students.

Contents include general industry descriptions, floors shipped, gross sales, sales by market segment, dealer gross revenue, lease fleet composition, sale of used units, industry manufacturing data, industry estimates, and visuals of contemporary modular buildings.

These newly released reports include detailing findings and analysis, including:

  • Key North American Markets, featuring detailed regional breakdowns of the United States and Canada;
  • Revenue & market share;
  • Overviews of the international modular construction market; and
  • Case studies from award-winning modular projects around the world.

‘Leveraging data’


“These annual reports have long been one of MBI’s most valuable member benefits,” said Tom Hardiman, executive director of the Modular Building Institute.

“Considering the challenges – and successes – of the industry during the last year, it’s exciting to release these reports and help the industry further leverage all the great data and experience we’ve accumulated.”

In addition to the release of the 2021 reports, MBI has also just made available – free of charge – all three annual reports from 2020.

MBI’s annual reports from 2019 are also available, providing a detailed three-year overview of the entire construction industry using data that isn’t available anywhere else.

The complete 2021, 2020, and 2019 industry reports are available here.
