Prefabrication is considered as the beginning of industrialization in the construction sector and these processes are followed by mechanization, automatic control and production. Prefabricated construction technology allows the building to be made easier and faster, with lower cost, more successful quality control and less material waste. Although there are many advantages of prefabricated systems, the use of prefabricated building systems in Turkey is at very low levels. The main objective of this research is to identify factors affecting the prevalent use of prefabricated building systems in Turkey. In order to reach the aim using questionnaire data obtained from architects, employees of prefabricated element manufacturers and contractors. Reliability analyze and exploratory factor analyze were conducted using SPSS 22.0 software on obtained data. As a result of the study nine main factors that affect the use of prefabricated construction systems in Turkey was found.
