Market for Green Building Materials Set to Soar


Erick Vickstrom, research analyst for BCC Research, said increased demand across the sector will “provide an opportunity for both existing players and new entrants into the green building materials market.”

For their research, BCC defined “green materials” as those having at least one of these characteristics:

  • Made from salvaged, recycled, or agricultural waste content

  • Manufactured with efficient, environmentally friendly processes

  • Made from rapidly renewable resources

  • Beneficial to the interior built environment

  • Recyclable at the end of their useful life
