Work performed may include new work, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs. Production work performed by establishments in this market is generally outsourced to general contractor type establishments or builders for sale, but particularly in renovation and repair work, construction work may also be performed directly to the property owner.

Trade contractors generally do most of their work at the construction site, although they may have workshops where they do prefabrication and other work. Revenues from the sales of establishments primarily engaged in preparing sites for new construction are also included in this market.

Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the trade contractors market in 2021. North America was the second largest region in the trade contractors market. Regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The growth of the specialty contractors market over the forecast period will be primarily driven by increased construction activity in emerging markets. Emerging markets that have seen robust construction activity include China, Brazil, India, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. For example, the Chinese construction market reached $2.279 billion in 2019. This rapid growth in construction activity will contribute to the growth of the trade contractor market.

Artificial intelligence and robotics are increasingly popular in the construction industry to modify the workforce, capture data and analyze information, eliminate human errors and inconsistencies and deliver quality results . Artificial intelligence (AI) uses the computer to model the natural intelligence of humans in computer-controlled robots and machine learning to solve problems and perform tasks.

These artificially intelligent robots help perform construction activities, inspect quality, track progress, monitor heavy equipment in real time, proactively alert the operator to system failures or malfunctions, and increase security.

For example, in 2020, KwantAI, an American company providing wearable sensors and enterprise SaaS platforms to predict and optimize costs, time and safety risks on construction and manufacturing sites, launched a AI-based social distancing solution for the construction industry.

Kwant’s patented machine learning algorithms were used to provide accurate indoor and outdoor location of on-site employees. delivers proactive decision making using actionable insights around social distancing, contact tracing, and capacity thresholds by combining battery-powered sensors with predictive algorithms.

Construction costs are steadily increasing due to rising material costs. Companies in the sector have seen moderate profit growth as prices for materials such as crude oil, a key component of asphalt, rose 58% in 2021 compared to 2020.
