Green Building Market – Summary


The life, standing on the brink of a significant environmental upheaval, has triggered a need for innovations that would both enhance lifestyle and sustainability of the constructions. Leaving minimal carbon footprint is the need of the hour and developers are responding well with the constant implementation of innovative technologies. Results are astonishingly supportive as their impacts are long-lasting and assist in plummeting of the associated costs. Green buildings use less water, increases energy efficiency, minimizes waste production, and creates healthier ambiance for a living. It is gaining traction among builders, and the rising inclination of consumers towards this type of building can ensure a robust CAGR of 10.26% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Market Research Future’s (MRFR) report further incorporates various drivers that would significantly impact the market during the review period and provides an in-depth analysis of the segments that would ensure a reliable future market prediction.


Eco-awareness is promoting the market the most. Global warming is fast becoming a persistent issue and countering this, requires involvement in every level and proper execution of plans. Green building is a step ahead towards the future with a positive influence on various environmental, economic and social factors. Government initiatives are also promoting the green building constructions substantially.


These buildings bring down the cost substantially by bettering the environmental performance and using fewer resources. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings reduce carbon emission by 34% and consume 25% less energy than the conventional buildings which can give builders an edge over the rest. Furthermore, its resale value is also considerably high which would give builders and owners to charge higher rent or price for the same.


However, obtaining LEED-certification is a time-consuming affair owing to which cost of the building could rise. At the same time, professionals with a keen eye for the value of all green components such as ventilation control, lighting control, temperature control, and abundant daylighting are not that easy to find. Hence, the lack of expertise can affect the structural design of such buildings.


Segmentation Analysis:


By product, the global green building market can be segmented into exterior products and interior products. With 79.6% of the worldwide market share, exterior products are currently dominating the segment. The market can quickly climb up to a valuation of USD 268,573.8 million during the forecast period and can record a stellar CAGR of 10.76% by 2023. Exterior products can be further segmented into smart lighting, HVAC systems, solar products, building systems, and others. Interiors include roofing and flooring.
