The building materials market is suddenly awash in green materials and green thinking. Although the green building materials market is significant and growing, it is not as large as some other analysts suggest. Nevertheless, double digit growth rates between 17% and 23% imply significant opportunity and change in the building materials industry.

Green Building Materials in the U.S. explores and exposes the issues, trends and markets that are being driven by the green boom. It looks primarily at demand for green building products by tracking project types, occupant types, project locations and building sizes. The report also examines several specific, key product groups including Wood and Lumber Products, Siding, Thermal Insulation, Flooring and Millwork. Because of the report’s “buy side” focus, the report does not attempt to assess all possible green products and product categories.

Report Methodology
These report data were obtained from government sources, trade associations and publications, business journals, company literature, investment reports and interviews with industry stakeholders. The report covers the needs of the commercial and residential green building materials sector.

In addition to its in-depth analysis of data from the US Green Building Council, SBI also conducted extensive interviews with executives among green builders, materials manufacturers and green building consultants and architects.

Statistics describing the value of shipments were derived from the U.S. Census of Manufacturers and the Annual Survey of Manufacturers, and were augmented by estimates and forecasts by SBI. Historical data are provided for 2002 through 2006, with forecast data from 2007 to 2011.
