The global Building Information Modelling Market is estimated to Propelled by growth in construction industry




Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM’s advantage is collaborative work-flow and its ability of gather and synchronize all project data in a common data environment. It helps in optimizing design, construction and operations of buildings or infrastructure which results in reduced operating costs.

The global Building Information Modelling Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9,908.7 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
The increasing adoption of BIM in construction industry has been a key factor driving the growth of global building information modelling market. BIM provides 3D visualization of the structure which helps architects, engineers, contractors to detect design errors in initial phase only. It enables collaboration and coordination among project teams like architects, engineers, and owner as the information is stored in a common database accessible by all participants. This results in smooth work-flow, early detection of errors, and reduced construction time and costs. The construction teams can visualize the entire project before actual construction commences with BIM software. This has increased its use in planning, designing, and construction of residential and commercial infrastructure projects globally.

SWOT Analysis
Strength: Building Information Modelling (BIM) provides collaborative 3D modeling and data sharing during planning, design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructures. This helps in improved coordination and reduction of errors and omissions.
Weakness: High upfront costs and training requirements for implementation of BIM. Limited expertise availability. Interoperability issues between BIM software and other project management tools.
Opportunity: Growing focus on green construction and sustainability. Increasing governmental mandates for BIM adoption. Rapid urbanization in developing regions increases the demand for infrastructure projects.
Threats: Competition from open-source and free BIM software. Issues related to data security and privacy as project data is stored centrally. Lack of BIM guidelines and standards in some countries limits adoption.
