CTBUH Data Handbook 2023

This is the inaugural edition of the CTBUH Data Handbook, an annual publication that covers the state of tall building construction and the affiliated growth of the world’s cities. As an extension of CTBUH’s annual “Year in Review” report, this book offers deeper insights and expanded graphics for tall building professionals and enthusiasts.

As the world surpasses 2,000 buildings of 200 meters and greater in height, important trends in the function, material, and location of these projects have emerged. Simultaneously, the world’s megacities are expanding. The United Nations predicts that 68% of humanity will live in urban areas by 2050.

The data herein was collected from CTBUH’s tall building database and government sources by the Research and Thought Leadership (RTL) team through 1 August 2023. Additional research publications can be viewed at: CTBUH.org/research. To submit a research proposal to the RTL team, please reach out to: research@ctbuh.org.
