Growth Drivers

Steadily increasing Green Building Construction

Both private and public institutions have increased investment in green buildings because of their growing importance in various spheres. Green buildings are environmentally friendly as they reduce carbon footprint and limit energy, water, and other materials. The use of natural ventilation through wind circulation and building orientation maintains a comfortable temperature during the hot summer months, besides reducing the use of air conditioning. As a result, the health and wellness of the residents and employees is positively impacted. Therefore, the demand for green buildings for residential and commercial use is expanding, propelling its market growth.

Expanding Government Investment and Initiatives Towards Sustainable Development

With expanding green building construction in South East Asian countries, the focus on sustainability and renewable materials is also increasing. Therefore, the governments of these countries are increasingly investing and taking various initiatives to promote the use of renewable building materials. For instance, the BCA Green Mark Scheme launched in 2005 significantly fueled Singapore's first green building initiative by encouraging construction companies to adoptgreen buildings by construction companies. Such initiatives are boosting the growth of the South East Asia and Australia green building construction materials market.

Restraints

High Cost and Limited Awareness Towards Renewable Building Materials

Southeast Asia and Australia green building materials market is restrictive because of the lack of awareness regarding green building materials and high capital investment involved. Green building materials are more expensive than traditional building materials; therefore, most contractors avoid using them. Moreover, the use of green building materials in construction eventually increases the price of the residential or commercial building, which may impact its profit margin in the future.

Impact of COVID-19 on South East Asia and Australia Green Building Materials Market

With the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19-induced pandemic, several countries worldwide had to impose a lockdown to curb the spread of the virus. Because China was the source of the virus's spread, Asian countries were more vulnerable to the COVID-19 effect. Therefore, the governments of various South East Asian countries had to take drastic measures and impose a lockdown which significantly halted the construction of green buildings. As a result, the demand for green building materials declined significantly. However, this slump is expected to last only temporarily. The market is likely to flourish in the post-COVID-19 period.
