Green Roof Market By Roof Type (Extensive Roof, Intensive Roof), By End-user (Residential, Commercial, Industrial) - Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

The government is promoting green roofs to reduce global warming.

The popularity and implementation of the "green roof" concept are gaining traction around the globe as it helps in lowering the temperature on roofs, thereby decreasing the ambient temperature. This is achieved by growing plants on rooftops that help absorb the radiation from the sun and reduce the urban heat island effect. It has not only helped to reduce room temperature, but the consumption of electricity is also falling in the metros. This, in turn, helps slow the climate change process. As a result, various governments are introducing supportive policies such as subsidies, financial aid, and special investment summits to encourage the adoption of green roofs. Thus, the reduction in global warming due to green roofs is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Rising construction of industrial, commercial, and residential buildings is expected to increase environmental heat, which in turn is expected to fuel the growth of the green roof market. People are migrating to cities as the economy develops and the population grows. This has impacted the increasing construction of residential and commercial spaces across every region of the world. More structures are having a negative impact on the environment by reducing green cover and causing deforestation. To counter such a situation, many governments are adopting "green roof" concepts that are sustainable and eco-friendly.The global green roof market was worth US$ 7.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 28.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 16.8% between 2019 and 2027.

Market Snapshot

Extensive segment dominating the market

Based on roof type, the global green roof market is segmented into extensive and intensive roofs. The extensive roof segment captured the largest market share in 2018. Factors such as low maintenance costs are driving the market's growth. Moreover, low capital costs per square meter and minimal irrigation and nutrient requirements are likely to drive product demand further. These roofs are used mainly in single residential buildings as they don't need a pre-defined roof designed for gardening.

The intensive product segment is estimated to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Heavy weight and high maintenance and installation costs associated with intensive roofing tend to make up a smaller market share of the segment in 2018. However, the increasing adoption of these products for commercial and industrial applications is expected to increase the market share in the near future. These roofs include grasses, shrubs, and even trees due to the high depth of planting.
