The building material industry has for many years been largely an analog industry with many manual resource demanding steps. The whole industry has gone from being ”the last frontier” to where all actors now being ready to digitalise the different steps from planning, tenders, pricing, supplier information all the way to order by the end customer. More steps in the information process are now combined safer through digitalisation. Not so surprising e-commerce with building material grew with about 40% during 2016. From low levels but still among the fastes of all segments and it looks like that development will continue. In Sweden alone the turnover of the building material industry is around SEK 100bn.
