In a new report from Allied Market Research, the firm shows significant market growth for green building materials over the next five years.

According to the Environmental Leader, the “Green Building Materials Market Report” forecasts that the global market is expected to grow from $171,475 million in 2015 to $377,029 million by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 11.9 percent from 2016 to 2022.

The report also shows that the emission reduction potential of green building materials, higher asset value of green buildings, growth in public awareness regarding green materials, and increase in client and market demand are the major factors that will drive market growth.

With reduced operating costs and a better indoor working environment, the report states that those factors will add to market demand for green building materials.

As Daily Business News readers are already aware, the manufactured and modular housing industries have long shown the significant upside of factory built housing, including lower costs, a more consistent product and strict federal standards.

Factory-built homes are becoming more popular in the housing industry as builders face a shortage of construction workers. Among the upscale modular homes covered, includes the work done by Revolution PreCrafted Homes, where Eric Trump sits on the board of directors. In a survey from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index reported that on average, single-family homebuilders use 10.2 different green products or practices, and 22 percent always or almost always have their homes certified to a green standard.

As populations around the world continue to grow, a recurring theme is the need for housing.

More directly, many nations have declared a “housing crisis” and are looking for solutions.

One of the nations where the need is most pronounced is the U.K., where a report by Cast CEO Mark Farmer entitled; “The Farmer Review of the U.K. Construction Model” cited that labor shortages mean that new homes cannot be built fast enough, and studies commissioned by the U.K. Government have determined that the country will need an additional one million homes by 2020.

Tim Western of property giant JLL believes that modular and prefab is the solution.

There is likely to be a seismic shift in how and where we live and work by 2030,” said Western.

Homes manufactured like cars, in other words off-site in a factory, with the opportunity to pick and choose what goes into a basic structure, will bring ‘car quality’ to the market.
