Zero Energy Buildings Market Research, 2031

The global zero energy buildings market size was valued at $71.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $403 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 18.7% from 2022 to 2031. Zero energy buildings, also known as net-zero energy buildings are highly energy efficient buildings. For the energy and electricity needs, these buildings are typically dependent on the electricity and energy produced on site by their own renewable energy systems, such as solar power and wind power. Zero energy buildings heavily rely on direct sun energy for heating and lighting in the interior spaces of the building.

The earth’s climate is worsening, owing to the unprecedented and unchecked emission of greenhouse gases since the beginning of industrial revolution. This is causing the global average temperature to rise, eventually leading to various issues such as global sea level rise, crop failure, untimely season change, worsening of air quality, and other environment related issues. This alarming fact has brought every nation together to stop the unchecked emission of greenhouse gases and bring back the earth’s environment to its original state as much as possible. Furthermore, building sector is responsible for emission of more than 35% of global CO2 emissions. Thus, zero energy buildings are constructed, as a zero-energy building consumes only the electricity that is typically generated via renewable resources. This is expected to play a major role in reducing the global CO2 emissions in the coming years. Such factors are expected to positively influence the zero energy buildings market growth in the coming years.

Furthermore, global population is rising at a significant pace. It is estimated that by the year 2050, the global population is expected to rise to more than 9.5 billion from about 7.8 billion in 2021. This rapid growth in population is anticipated to drive the growth of building sector in the coming years. Moreover, rise in awareness regarding global warming and protection of earth’s environment among the masses are expected to encourage people across the world to demand for zero energy buildings in the coming years. The growth in market is expected to be supported by various initiatives taken by the countries around the globe to become carbon neutral by the year 2050 and 2070.

In addition, key players in zero energy buildings industry offer a wide range of products and solutions, to meet the zero energy building requirements. They constantly innovate their offerings and partner with other players to formulate the best products and solution to stay competitive in the market. For instance, in February 2022, Honeywell International Inc., a major provider of building automations services, partnered with Nexii Building Solutions. Nexii is known for its high-performance green building products and building process. This partnership is expected to bring together best of both the companies in a single package to provide energy saving systems to the small- to medium-sized commercial buildings.

The novel coronavirus had rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and later became a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted the production of many energy-efficient components of zero energy buildings due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on various residential and non-residential building construction projects. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. As of mid-2022 the number of COVID-19 cases have diminished significantly. This has led to the full-fledged reopening of zero energy buildings components manufacturers and contractors at their full-scale capacities. Furthermore, it has been more than two years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery.

Furthermore, various governments initiatives to incentivizing the installation of solar panels, and others highly efficient building components is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the zero energy buildings market.

Zero Energy Buildings Market by Applications

Analyst Review

The zero energy buildings market has witnessed significant growth owing to surge in worldwide efforts for bringing down the greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, zero energy buildings market is rising, owing to surge in demand for buildings especially in the developing nations.

Global warming has brought all the countries together to curb the emission of greenhouse gas. Since building sector accounts for more than 35% of the global CO2 emissions, countries have made major changes in how the buildings perform. A zero-energy building complies with the requirements set forth to reduce their CO2 emissions. Such factors play a major role in driving market growth. Moreover, developed countries are leading the adoption of zero energy buildings. For instance, U.S. has mandated that all the newly constructed buildings must be zero energy ready by the end of 2030. In addition, U.S. has set targets to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

The developing nations are still lagging behind the developed nations when it comes to active adoption of zero energy building standards. This is attributed to the unavailability of enough resources. Furthermore, the lower income countries are still to be industrialized. Therefore, in such countries, the growth of zero energy buildings market is expected to be moderate.

Moreover, various policies of the governments across the world that are subsidizing the adoption of zero energy building components are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the market growth.
