Report Scope

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.

Report Highlights

  • BCC estimates the value of the U.S. green building materials market at $21.1 billion in 2005. This figure is expected to rise to $21.9 billion in 2006 and to $27.9 billion by 2011, an AAGR of 4.9% over the next five years.
  • Structural building materials accounted for nearly three-quarters of the U.S. green building materials market in 2005, followed by interior materials (13.8%), exterior materials (11.2%) and plumbing/wiring/fixtures (0.1%). Exterior building materials are growing at a faster rate (i.e., an AAGR of 10% through 2011) than any other product segment, and as a result are expected to increase their market share to 15.7% by 2011.
  • Turning to individual products, oriented strand board (OSBO) had by far the largest sales of any green building product in 2005 and is expected to remain in first place through 2011, despite price erosion, which will reduce the value of sales over time. Other top-selling green building materials included i-joists, glue laminated timber and fiber cement.
