InEight GLOBAL CAPITAL
| 2021 | First Edition
The first edition of the Global Capital Projects Outlook from InEight focused on optimism and digitalization. We believe they represent the two most important themes in the short- and long-term development of our industry.
Key themes covered in the 2021 Edition:
- Optimism levels were high for the future, despite the COVID-19 pandemic
- The industry is transitioning between the world of analog to digital
- A deep dive into technologies that are viewed as critical to organizations’ future success, investments and returns, and what barriers stand in the way of true digital transformation
We benchmarked how owners and contractors are meeting the challenges of the global construction industry trends and provided insights on how technology has significant potential for productivity improvement and growth.
The survey included 25 questions designed to gauge general confidence and optimism levels across the industry (especially important during the pandemic), and assess track record, plans and attitudes towards digital transformation. Of the 300 respondents, 100 each were drawn from our focus regions of North America, Europe and APAC, giving each equal weighting in the report. Globally, 64% of respondents were project owners and 36% were contractors.
