This sentence is an example of Conditional sentences with Modal Verbs.

A modal verb (also modal, modal auxiliary verb, or modal auxiliary) is a type of verb that is used to indicate modality – that is, likelihood, ability, permission, and obligation.

Examples include the English verbs can/could, may/might, must, will/would, and shall/should.
