Materials in Green Buildings

Timber, Steel and Metals, Concrete, Glass, Insulation, and Other Materials Utilized for Structural, Building Envelope, and Interior and Finishes Applications in Commercial and Residential Green Buildings

As the market for green buildings grows and matures, so too does the market for green building materials. The component elements of structure, envelope, cladding, floors and walls, and interior finishes all contribute to a building’s environmental performance. To meet the needs of designers and owners of projects that seek green building certification or that otherwise strive for exemplary environmental performance, materials manufacturers and suppliers are developing and marketing products that support these performance objectives.

Demand for green buildings has remained relatively buoyant during the global recession. Although the downturn in construction activity has significantly affected materials producers of green and conventional products alike, the green buildings market appears to have slipped less than the buildings market as a whole. Sustained building growth in emerging markets and the opportunity for many materials to serve the retrofit and new-build markets have helped the green buildings and building materials markets avoid a crash. Navigant Research forecasts that the worldwide market for green construction materials will grow from $116 billion in 2013 to greater than $254 billion in 2020.

This Navigant Research report reviews the key market and regulatory trends that are contributing to the growing green building market, along with the commensurate growth in green building materials. Market forecasts, segmented by material element and material type and broken down by world region, are provided through 2020. The report includes profiles of more than 35 key industry players, along with detailed examinations of worldwide market drivers and barriers and technology issues.
