U.S. demand for green building materials to exceed $20 billion in 2013

Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:47

The U.S. market for “green” building materials generated sales of almost $57 billion in 2008, according to a March 3 Freedonia Group release. This market is projected to expand 7.2 percent annually to more than $80 billion in 2013, outpacing the growth of building construction expenditures over that period. Although green building materials are expected to account for an increasing share of materials used, growth will be driven primarily by the recovery of the residential market through 2013 as it rises from its depressed 2008 level. These and other trends are presented in Green Building Materials, a new study from The Freedonia Group Inc., a Cleveland-based industry research firm.
