Intensifying emphasis on sustainability along with the acute need to reduce carbon footprint are the key factors which are motivating the growth of the green building market. In developed countries like the U.S., there has been a massive shift from traditional buildings to green buildings. Increasing urbanization and commitments on an international level to curtail harmful emissions are acting as tailwinds to the market growth.

Global warming has become a reason for concern, and various regulatory bodies are enacting laws which would promote green buildings. The governments in multiple countries are taking concrete steps to encourage building with green components. Green buildings reduce carbon emission by 34% and consume 25% less energy than the conventional buildings which is major factor for their massive popularity. Moreover, the higher resale value of green buildings acts as incentives for builders as they can charge higher for green building properties.

On the contrary, green building construction involves obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification which is a tedious affair. Moreover, all green components such as ventilation control, lighting control, temperature control, and abundant daylighting raise the cost of building which might stand as an impediment to the market growth. Furthermore, lack of expertise also remains a possible bottleneck.
