Future of Industry Ecosystems: Construction Tech Trends
This IDC Survey looks further into the construction cut of IDC's 2022 Future of Industry Ecosystems Global Survey data and IDC's 2022 Industry IT and Communications Survey. This combined view emphasizes the continued move of the varied construction ecosystem — architects, general contractors, project managers, EPC, suppliers, and owners — to becoming digital-first organizations.
We explore three key trends in the construction market today within this document, supported by data from the aforementioned surveys. Much as with other industries, the move is to invest in digital technology that unifies data, connects internal and external teams (i.e., the ecosystem), and harmonizes projects and processes while building on the 3D model–based investments of the past 25 years.
The construction space is an exciting market, with the rapid acceleration to cloud, digital, and virtual. The next three years and beyond promises continued advancements on these fronts, despite uncertain economic conditions.
