Looking ahead, Europe anticipates a remarkable feat in 2022, with projections soaring to a monumental 428,000 prefabricated homes, a significant share of which, approximately 148,700 homes, is set to grace the ever-evolving landscape of the U.K. [2].

The European modular home production in numbers

Despite Scandinavia’s 45% adoption rate of modern techniques, the U.K. clings to traditional methods, with only 5% of homes reflecting the shift. Nonetheless, amid the U.K.’s densely populated terrain, hosting 281 individuals per square kilometer, industry pioneers like TopHat, Ilke Homes, and Legal & General Modular Homes redefine the landscape, not just as builders but as visionaries, committed to providing accessible, eco-friendly, and premium living spaces swiftly and efficiently.

When we analyze the production of each modular home manufacturer however, those based in Scandinavian regions remain small in comparison to the large U.K. manufacturers. The U.K construction market at the moment is still highly traditional, with a percentage of homes being built with modular or prefabricated construction being relatively small representing only a 5% of the overall housing construction [14].
