As a focus of the construction industrialization development, prefabricated building embraces an opportunity of explosive growth in China. Recently, the PRC government has escalated the development of prefabricated construction as one of the national strategies in construction industry for the development of construction industry and thus introduced a series of supportive policies. Guided by the development plan and incentive policies introduced by the central government, a large number of provinces and cities have started to experience an explosive growth of prefabricated buildings. In terms of new floor areas, the penetration rate of prefabricated building including prefabricated villas increased from 0.5% in 2013 to 4.6% in 2018 and is expected to reach 23.6% in 2023.
