Technology advancements have catalyzed the growth and transformation of the construction industry. Adoption of AutoCAD, 3D printing, drones, self-driven vehicles, IoT, and augmented reality is influencing every activity in the construction space, starting from research and development and production to marketing and supply chain along with after-sales support. In addition, the introduction of building information modeling (BIM) has resulted in higher productivity and revenue. In a recent industry report, Research and Markets had predicted the construction industry to grow by $10.5 trillion in terms of revenue by 2023. With this pace of advancement, the need to connect both the virtual and physical worlds together has become almost inevitable. Such convergence will empower businesses in better decision-making with the aid of foolproof insights.
