Leading the Green Building Industry Transformation

Some trends in the construction industry do not have staying power, but it appears that green building will continue to be the mega trend for the next decade and beyond.

The global green building industry is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of around 13% from 2015 – 2020. Focusing on Asia-Pacific, the region is expected to be the fastest-growing market with a CAGR of 47.8% during the same period, which represents a potential dollar capitalization to be worth from US$607B in 2015 to US$950B in 2020. This emerging trend signals the high receptivity of stakeholders on the government low carbon policy in the buildings sector to reduce energy consumption, as well as improving water efficiency and the adoption of sustainable building materials.

The benefits of “Green buildings” and energy management are being realised by organisations around the world. Green buildings provide health benefits for their inhabitants and boost work productivity, returning energy and financial savings, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption, improving local air quality and visual appeal, and resulting in urban biodiversity and regional natural resource conservation. There is a global need for professionals to understand green building technologies and materials, energy management strategy, the green building business case and how to tap into widely available government financial incentives in order to fund them.
