by Team Fact.MR

Providing the much-needed data reliability and consistency, the global building information modeling market is booming. The market was pegged at US$ 4.7 Bn in 2019. According to the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the global construction market will grow by 85 per cent to reach US$ 15.5 Trillion by 2030 due to rapid developments in US, India and China. Skyscrapers are touching new height records, gigantic tunnels are paving the way for new transport networks, and bridges are covering more distances in an unprecedented way which is propelling the building information modeling market.

Construction is witnessing unprecedented growth in terms of project complexity; case in point, Port Mann Bridge-Vancouver, Gotthard Base Tunnel-Switzerland, Three Gorges Dam-China, Shanghai Tower-China and Gotthard Base Tunnel-Switzerland. The development of such complex structures entails efficient and economical planning and vision. On this premise, the building information modeling market, will become an unavoidable resource within the modern-day construction sector.
