Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over much of the past decade, environmental concerns have shed light on the importance of developing and using sustainable materials for the construction of homes, buildings and structures. States, counties and cities have tightened building codes to promote the use of energy-efficient products and sustainable materials, thereby driving growth for the Sustainable Building Material Manufacturing industry. Over the five years to 2021, the industry is anticipated to continue experiencing exceptional growth, albeit a slower rate as the construction market recovers to prerecessionary levels. Moreover, technology will continue improving the performance and relative cost of sustainable materials, further spurring demand... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

Building materials must meet a number of criteria in order to be considered sustainable under standards set by the US Green Building Council. Environmentally friendly materials must meet guidelines for low toxicity (i.e. formaldehyde free), minimal chemical emissions, recycled content, recyclability, durability and moisture resistance. Materials must also help reduce energy and water consumption.

Structural building materials

Structural building materials are expected to account for about 44.0% of all sustainable building products. Structural building materials include a diverse set of sustainable products ranging from recycled metal and plastics to concrete and other stone materials. Recycled metal and plastics are reused to produce beams of all shapes and sizes... purchase to read more

What is the Sustainable Building Material Manufacturing Industry?

This industry produces building materials used during the construction and renovation of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified building structures. Such buildings use sustainable materials that reduce building water, energy and other resource needs. Sustainable materials are more efficient than traditional products because they reduce pollution, waste and environmental degradation.
