Global Sustainable Construction Material Growth Opportunities 2023: Visionary Leadership and Digital Technologies Critical to Leverage Opportunities Arising from Regulation

DUBLIN, Sept. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Sustainable Construction Material Growth Opportunities” report has been added to’s offering.

This growth opportunity analytics examines the most relevant sustainability trends reaching the important construction materials in the market, including timber, cement, brick, steel, glass, insulation and plastic. The analysis covers each material, in terms of its characteristics and in terms of sustainability strategies aiming for decarbonization, energy efficiency, volume of recycled content, and end-of-life benefits.

The study dives deep into what is currently happening with each of these materials at the end of its use life in the construction site, what companies are doing to improve sustainability levels, and given these scenarios, estimates for 2030 the penetration of the sustainable variants of each of these materials in the market.

Several drivers and restraints that will help these materials achieve higher levels of sustainability are also discussed. Drivers include a growing sustainability corporate culture, green funding, sustainability regulation and standards, construction and home improvement business growth, and an increasing number of digital platforms for asset management. Restraints include the lack of market incentives for material recovery, technical problems in demolition sites, lack of data to improve circularity, sensitivity to price, and the lack of skilled labor.

As for growth opportunities, the analysis finds improvement in how actors in the supply chain relate to each other, advancements in the data available in the building sector, new opportunities in the reclaimed wood and autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) bricks spaces, and renovation and retrofits growing because of legislation pushing for efficiency.
