TRENDS IN METAL CONSTRUCTION-2024 AND BEYOND

As we enter into 2024, the Metal Building Materials Market Report underscores the imminent expansion of the Metal Building Materials market, fueled by key trends set to move the metal construction industry forward including a focus on sustainability with more green construction, metal building color trends, and a continued integration of technology. The steadfast preference for sustainable and eco-friendly solutions, as highlighted by the US Green Building Council’s 2023 report, continues to dominate the priorities of Engineering and Construction firms. Expect metal to play an important role to reflect the dynamic nature of architectural design particularly in color integration. Lastly, another trend to watch in this new year is a continued integration of technology in metal building design and construction with Building Information Modeling (BIM) leading the way. In the coming year, METALCON stands as the premier platform within the metal construction landscape for industry leaders to unveil the latest advancements in these dynamic trends.
