Samoter toward digitalization


With a production of 223 billion euro (2021 data), the construction sector confirms itself as the pivot and driving force of the Italian economy. 8.2% of GDP, 46% of fixed investments and 22.5% of industrial employment are numbers that demonstrate the importance of the construction industry in the country's economic landscape.
The photograph at the end of 2022 shows an increase in productivity. The profit per hour worked increased by 9.2% compared to the average of the three-year period 2017-2019, although it did not reach in absolute value the performance of the other sectors, which saw an average increase in this indicator of 2.8%.
Correspondingly, also the number of construction machines placed on the Italian market grew: over 25,000, an increase of 18% compared to the previous year.

The data comes from the research 'Digitalisation in the construction sector: prospects and potential', carried out by GS1 Italy in cooperation with CRESME. The analysis shows how the tax incentives and renovation bonuses approved in recent years have been the driving force behind the sector's recovery, allowing a rapid return to pre-pandemic levels.
According to the GS1 study, however, the real impetus in the near future will come from digitalisation which, even if it does not currently dominate the sector as it does in other segments of the economy, is definitely beginning to play a key role in further increasing efficiency and productivity, with an eye on reducing operational risk and waste.
Tools such as BIM (Building Information Modelling), which represent a method for optimising the planning, realisation and management of buildings with the help of software, will certainly help in this regard.

All this and more will be the topic of debate at Samoter, that, six years after the last edition, will focus on innovation. The exhibition dedicated to construction machinery, which reaches its 31st edition this year, will be hosted in Verona from 3 to 7 May.

Emiliana Serbatoi will be present at the event to show all its products dedicated to the sector at stand C14 in Hall 9. From Tank Fuel to Tankube for perfect management of refuelling on site, to solutions for Urea/AdBlue and transportable polyethylene tanks.
