Hi everybody 🤗
We continue to discover for you.
The construction container is an option to contribute to the balance of our environment and help reduce the accumulation of solid waste altering our ecosystem, achieving modern and tasteful buildings.
There are around 17 million containers in the world, of these, only 6 million are in use. When we decide to build a container house we are refusing around 3,500 kg of steel for each container that would otherwise be very difficult to remodel because it is so expensive.
This type of construction is more respectful with the environment than the conventional ones because they do not generate permanent alterations in the terrain.
The space constraint issues and resulting rise in housing prices in most of the major cities
across the world is driving the growth in the container houses market. Container houses make use of the old
shipping containers to build their houses and require very less space compared to conventional houses, thus saving space.
The global container houses market was valued at about $47.68 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to $61.34 billion at a CAGR of 6.5% through 2022.
North America is the largest market for container houses with a 39% share in the market.
