Overview of the global energy-efficient building market
Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global energy-efficient building market will grow steadily and post a CAGR of almost 10% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the need to enhance energy-efficiency in existing buildings as one of the primary factors for the growth of this market. Green buildings help in ensuring the availability of a sustainable energy resource for efficient operations. In addition to utilizing energy from renewable resources, energy-efficient buildings focus on energy conservation as well. This has augmented the need to increase the efficiency of existing buildings by retrofitting. Retrofitting involves insulating buildings and also installing energy-efficient fixtures such as draught strips, energy-efficient lighting, roof, wall, and floor insulations, and advanced heating controls. This will result in a considerable reduction in energy consumption, which will increase the demand for energy-efficient systems and appliances and in turn, enhancing the growth of the market.
Unlike conventional buildings, green or sustainable buildings account for minimal or zero greenhouse gas emissions and play a significant role in preserving the environment. Zero-energy buildings produce much energy as they consume, reduce the dependence on energy from non-renewable sources, and also decrease carbon emission levels. With the increasing demand for energy driving energy prices, the construction of zero-energy buildings will soon become a major trend in countries all across the globe.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The market appears to be highly fragmented due to the presence of several vendors who offer a series of smart building systems and services. Vendors offer a complete range of intelligent building systems and provide complete turnkey solutions for buildings. The market is currently dominated by large players, who have a large product portfolio of energy-efficient building products that can be customized to the client's requirement. The market is highly competitive, and the presence of the well-established players makes it difficult for the medium and small-scale vendors to establish their presence in the market.
The leading vendors in the market are -
The other prominent vendors in the market are ABB, Building IQ, EnerNOC, GridPoint, and Pacific Controls.
Segmentation by application and analysis of the energy-efficient building market
Accounting for about 71% of the total share of the market, the product segment dominated this industry during 2015. The segment includes various products such as ventilation systems, lighting technologies, energy management systems, and controls. The rise in a number of new construction activities and the increasing introduction of energy efficiency policies especially in countries such as China, Germany, the US, and the UK will fuel the growth of the green building materials market.
Geographical segmentation and analysis of the energy-efficient building market
This market study estimates that in terms of geographical regions, the Americas will dominate this market throughout the forecast period and will account for about 37% of the total shares of the energy-efficient building market by 2020. The increasing government initiatives in countries, such as the US, Canada, and Brazil is the major factor for the growth of the market in this region. The US is the primary contributor in this region where the market’s growth attributes to the introduction of government regulations, consistent audits on aging buildings, and new constructions. The smart building market in the Americas is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 9%.
