Smart building materials - digitally integrated

Library of Challenges

Short description: In the conduct of growing sustainability, many different building materials are used, such as concrete, steel, wood etc. – all of these materials are just use “as is” and have no further connectivity, monitoring or information system. We strive for a smarter building based on its materials.

Market potential: Global construction market was valued at US$10.7 trillion in 2020 and is expected to grow by US$4.5 trillion between 2020 and 2030 to reach US$15.2 trillion. Smart building market 141bn$ (2028).

Timing: The solution can be implemented as soon as available, with a rising demand within the next 3 years.

Desired result: Either a working solution (hardware in terms of materials or software) which can be integrated into construction process (MVP/Prototype) or feasibility studies and concepts.

Information on challenge owner: Small SME (10-49 staff).

Market presence of challenge owner: Active in several countries.
