New and existing monorepos deployed to Vercel will experience faster builds.

Vercel now automatically caches node_modules recursively when installing dependencies during the build process. ENABLE_ROOT_PATH_BUILD_CACHE=1 will be set as a default environment variable on all new and existing monorepo projects. For large monorepos, this can decrease build times by minutes.

Check out the docs as well.
