The ongoing undertaking of construction industrialization in China is redefining the industry
and creating a new era for building construction. In order to identify the construction industrialization
status 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 different
levels of construction industrialization in China as of 2014; and (2) structural types and building
types are analyzed for industrialized construction, and it is found that reinforced concrete is
the predominant structure type, accounting for 77.1% of total floor area of industrialized construction
in 2014. The industrialization trends are also predicted for the following five years using Holt’s
and Delphi method. This research reveals the status and the promising trends of construction
industrialization in China.
