San Antonio, Texas – Experiencing a transformative phase, the North American modular space rental market is witnessing significant traction driven by thriving demand from the construction, education, and government sectors. Expected to surge to $6.1 billion by 2030, the industry presents a landscape comprised of both challenges and avenues for growth.

According to a Verify Markets 2024 report on the North American modular space rental market, in 2023, the construction segment dominated the market, capturing an estimated 44.0 percent share, closely followed by the education and government sectors. The market's trajectory is marked by a 15.0 percent growth in 2021 and a remarkable 20.0 percent in 2022 due to extended equipment lead times amid the pandemic, a construction boom, and inflationary pressures. However, 2023 underwent a gradual slowdown, reverting the market to pre-pandemic levels. The U.S. market is poised for consistent growth. Conversely, Canada might experience a temporary setback due to a slight decline in building permits with expected market recovery by 2025.

Key market trends encompass rising rental prices, diverse applications, sustainability, and technology innovation. The heightened demand has led to a significant surge in rental prices. This surge underscores the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of modular spaces.

The versatility of modular spaces drives their adoption across a wide range of sectors.

Strategies such as waste reduction and smart energy management systems are gaining prominence. Integration of technology, including smart building systems and IoT devices, enhances the functionality and efficiency of modular spaces, catering to evolving consumer demands.

Restraints encompass supply chain interruptions, industry business cycles, heightened competition, and challenges in adapting to evolving regulations and labor shortages impeding growth.
