Green-Roofs Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The reduction in global warming due to green roofs is notably driving the green-roofs market growth, although factors such as may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the green-roofs industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Market Driver

The key market driver for green-roofs market is the reduction in global warming due to green roofs.The reduction in global warming due to green roofs is one of the major factors driving the market growth.Green roofs are plants grown on top of buildings to reduce temperatures on roofs and decrease ambient temperature. Due to this temperature control effect, green roofs can help reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases from air conditioning.Green roofs add plants on roofs where most of the radiation from the sun can be absorbed, thus decreasing the urban heat island effect.These benefits are identified by various governments, which results in the development of supportive policies for the adoption of green roofs. 

Key Market Trend

The key market trend for green-roofs market is the integration of green-roof and solar photovoltaic systems.Green roofs and solar photovoltaic systems are integrated with the aim to minimize emissions of greenhouse gases and ensure the sustainable development of buildings. The integration of these systems ensures enhanced functions and effectiveness through cooling and shading effects. While photovoltaic panels protect the plants from excessive sun and evaporation of water, thereby contributing to the growth of plants and cooling through evapotranspiration of green-roof plants ensures increased efficiency of photovoltaic panels. These solar photovoltaic arrays can result in areas of shade on roofs. Therefore, only a certain category of plants called shade-loving plants can be placed in these areas. Although the installation of this roof is complex, vendors like ZinCo and Bauder provide green roofs with integrated solar photovoltaic systems. Countries like Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in Europe have started implementing these roofs.  

Key Market Challenge

The key market challenge for green-roofs market is the increased initial costs and long payback periods.The initial cost of green roofs can be three times the cost of conventional roofs. However, green roofs save costs throughout their lifespan, thereby providing a return on investment for the owner of the building. In some countries, vendors are yet to achieve economies of scale due to the decreased demand for green roofs. Thus, the installation costs of green roofs are high in these countries.Savings on energy can be achieved annually, while an increase in the lifespan of the roof saves repair or reconstruction costs of roofs. However, the payback period of green roofs is estimated to be up to almost 40 years, which is a major disadvantage for many builders. Sometimes these costs are paid by tenants through increased rents, which can decrease the occupancy for the building. In cities where municipal corporations are focused on creating affordable housing, mandating green roofs can increase rents, thus restricting the corporation from achieving its objectives.

This green-roofs market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth.
