The U.S. Market for Green Building Materials
The U.S. market for green building materials reached nearly $40.0 billion and $43.8 billion in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5% to nearly $69.0 billion over the period 2014-2019.
- An overview of the U.S. market for green building materials.
- Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013 and 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
- Information on green building materials which include those originating from salvaged, recycled, or agricultural waste content; those materials manufactured with the goal of resource-efficiency or environmentally friendliness, as well as materials meant to benefit the environment or that will be recyclable after their lifetime.
- Analysis of technical, commercial, and other prerequisites need to succeed in the green building materials market.
- Details pertaining to the market's drivers, inhibitors, and opportunities for growth.
- Profiles of major players in the industry
The scope of this report includes the U.S. market for building products that meet its definition of green, that is, those that are:
Made from salvaged, recycled or agricultural waste content.
- Manufactured with resource-efficient, environmentally friendly processes (e.g., conserve water/energy, minimize pollutants and process wastes).
- Derived from rapidly renewable resources (e.g., fast-growth wood).
- Beneficial to the built environment (e.g., conserve energy, remove indoor pollutants).
- Recyclable at the end of their life.
In general, coverage is limited to building products that meet one of these criteria and are at least neutral with respect to the other three (e.g., wood particle board is generally not included because it is made from recycled/waste materials but is subject to potentially harmful outgassing).
The report format includes the following major elements:
- Executive summary.
- Types of green building technologies.
- End users and applications.
- Manufacturers and related service providers.
- Patent analysis.
- Public policy dimensions and green initiatives.
- Market drivers.
- U.S. trends in the market for green building technologies by technology, product type, application and geographical region, 2013 to 2019.
