Global Market for Energy Efficient Building Envelope Technologies Estimated to Grow Modestly at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 2.2% by 2032
Market barriers include project complexity and costs, supply chain and workforce constraints
A new report from Guidehouse Insights evaluates the market for energy efficient building envelope technologies and focuses on three key components: roof insulation, wall insulation, and windows.
The building envelope, which includes roofs, foundations, walls, windows, and doors, can have a significant influence on how much energy is used in a building because it directly impacts major end uses like heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting. Over the last 50 years, the global market for energy efficient commercial building envelope technologies has steadily grown as more countries adopt energy codes and existing codes become stricter. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, global revenue from this market will grow modestly between 2023 and 2032, at a compound annual growth rate of 2.2%.
“The market for energy efficient building envelope technologies is well-established in developed regions around the world,” says Hannah Bastian, research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “This is largely due to decades-long policies that require buildings to meet energy performance requirements. The market is much smaller in developing regions due to the lack of mandatory building codes establishing energy efficiency requirements.”
Higher growth rates are anticipated in developing regions, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7%, due largely to increased code adoption.
Building energy code adoption, building retrofit requirements, building owner interest and demand, and energy security and resiliency, are key market drivers. However, barriers that may slow market growth include project complexity and costs, supply chain constraints, and workforce constraints, according to the report.
