Track: Construction Management
Purpose: The goal of this study is to systematically examine research reference trends related to digital transformation in the construction industry from 2016 to 2022. This research will focus on the development trend of digital transformation research in the construction industry on Google data-based scholar.
Design/methodology/approach: A mixed method approach was used in this study, combining bibliometric methods and a literature review. From 2016 to 2022, 43 international publications with the keyword digital transformation in the construction industry were sourced from the Google scholar database via web scraping.
Findings: According to the findings of this study, studies on digital transformation in the construction industry are dominated by several fields of study such as architecture, construction, management, engineering, digital technology, hotel industry, industry policy, financial, business, and economy. According to the findings of this study, there are at least four major perspectives that are commonly used when discussing digital transformation in the construction industry. However, this does not imply that no other perspectives are used in addition to these findings.
Research limitations/implications: The research's limitation is the scope of the articles used, which were sourced from the Google Scholar database. The recommendations in this study can be used as hypotheses in the future, in addition to research with broader literature sources, and comprehensive and in-depth follow-up research can be conducted. The study's findings are expected to be useful to academics researching digital transformation in the construction industry.
