Summary The ongoing undertaking of construction industrialization in China is redefining the industryand creating a new era for building construction. In order to identify the construction industrializationstatus and progress, a national survey is conducted across 19 key provinces and municipalities in China.Based on the collected data, construction industrialization is analyzed from various perspectives:(1) the industrialized building floor area is profiled using maps with colours showing the differentlevels of construction industrialization in China as of 2014; and (2) structural types and buildingtypes are analyzed for industrialized construction, and it is found that reinforced concrete isthe predominant structure type, accounting for 77.1% of total floor area of industrialized constructionin 2014. The industrialization trends are also predicted for the following five years using Holt’sand Delphi method. This research reveals the status and the promising trends of constructionindustrialization in China.
