Green building materials are an environmentally friendly solution as they are produced from recyclable products. Green building materials are ideal construction materials as they help in conserving non-renewable resources and also reduce environmental impact. Moreover, green building materials are a durable and energy-efficient solution that makes them suitable for building various infrastructures.
Global green building materials market was valued at US$ 259.41 Million in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).
The growing shift towards green building is expected to drive the green building materials market growth For example, increasing activities by North America Commission for replacing conventional materials with green building technology is fueling the market growth. According to Coherent Market Insights’ in 2020 analysis, regions such as the U.K., Singapore, and the UAE accounted for over 50.0% of green building activities. The growing renovation and construction of new infrastructure is also propelling the demand for green building materials across all these regions.
In September 2021, BASF, a multinational chemical producer and a leading multinational automobile safety glass manufacturer Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co., Ltd. (Fuyao Group) signed a strategic cooperation agreement to include the co-creation of new business development for the automotive industry into its existing scope of the partnership. With the new collaborative effort, the company will further strengthen the development of innovative and sustainable automotive glass and functional exterior application in combination with BASF which is expected to drive the green building materials market.
The COVID-19 outbreak had a negative impact on the green building materials market. The market witnessed a sharp decline in demand for green building materials market. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a ban on import and export, thereby disrupting the supply chain and hampering the market. Lockdown imposed by governments impacted the construction sector, and as a result, many construction projects have been halted or postponed. There was a huge supply and demand gap during COVID-19.

Green construction is an environment-friendly building method that reduces waste, protects the environment, and promotes healthy living. Green buildings are constructed with recyclable materials, minimizing waste and increasing energy efficiency. Using recycled materials is not only better for the environment, it also makes homes and offices more attractive to buyers. Bamboo floors are a popular choice to use in green buildings because they are fast-growing natural resource that can provide a natural touch to any space. Available in an array of colors and styles, bamboo flooring is an eco-friendly way to boost the beauty of any room.
Rapid growth in the construction sector across developing regions coupled with the growing adoption of advanced building materials is fostering the green building materials market growth. Growing environmental concerns is encouraging the adoption of innovative green construction material, which is also augmenting the market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Lafarge Egypt, a member of LafargeHolcim Group, introduced EcoLabel cement for the first time in Egypt.
The growing use of composite materials in green buildings is expected to bring new market opportunities over the forecast period. Composites are naturally-occurring materials produced from two or more constituent materials that differ in different chemical or physical properties. Composite materials have excellent properties such as energy-saving, lightweight, flexible, and are also LEED-certified. Thus, the growing use of composite materials in green buildings is projected to foster the market growth.
