Saint-Gobain, worldwide leader for sustainable habitat, is partnering the World Green Building Trends 2016 report and thus helping to advance understanding and awareness of the stakes of sustainable construction and its market. A total of 1,000 architects, engineers, contractors, property owners, experts and consultants from 69 countries were interviewed about their current sustainable construction projects and their forecasts for 2018.

Produced and edited every three years by US consultants Dodge Data & Analytics, the recently published 2016 report shows that market professionals expect their “green” construction business will continue to double, from 18 percent in 2015 to 37 percent in 2018.

This growth forecast is echoed in almost all of the report’s countries, with extremely strong growth in emerging economies like South Africa, India and China. The report also reveals that the main driver for sustainable construction projects is customer demand and not the desire to “do the right thing,” as was the case a few years ago.
