The prefabricated plant rooms market is a developing sector and as such, has seen significant growth in recent years. However, the sector’s performance is highly dependent on the performance of the wider manufacturing industry, the M&E engineering market and the overall construction industry. Following a significant fall in 2012, the market grew strongly in 2013 as a result of the improving economic climate and continuing growth in key end use construction markets. Prefabrication within the plant room market remains a growing concept and penetration across many end use sectors is low, offering potential for continued good levels of growth.
