Abstract: In recent years the housing industry has thrived in Chongqing, China. Living space of 10.77 square metres per capita was provided in 2000 and this figure increased to 15.52 square metres per capita by 2001. However, housing development in Chongqing is not without problems. The main difficulty in Chongqing’s housing market has been a mismatch between supply and demand at different housing market levels, which is due to overwhelming housing demand and poor affordability. Sustainability is the primary trend of the local housing industry. To ease the pressure on the population, ecological environment, resources and environment, housing industrialization is one of the feasible options for Chongqing. This paper is based on a literature review and field research to collect primary data that is currently in progress. The paper analyzes existing problems, as well as confronting challenges and opportunities for the development of the Chongqing’s housing industry, and it summarizes the manner in which to promote housing industrialization. It examines the viability of the development of industrialized housing in Chongqing with a special emphasis on localization, whereby full advantage can be taken by use of local resources. Particular emphasis is given to the establishment of a framework for the advancement of housing industrialization that expedites the development of housing technology, thereby improving housing contribution to science and technology.
