Market Opportunity for Green Products
It is not business as usual in the building industry these days and green building is no longer a grassroots initiative. This shift marks a permanent transformation of the way buildings are constructed, operated and maintained. A marketplace change this big means competitive opportunity for building product manufacturers – and lots of it! Conservative estimates say the U.S. market for green building products will be $30 to $40 billion annually by 2010. Pennsylvania building product manufacturers have what it takes to seize the advantage in this growing marketplace. Just take a look at our assets. PA is already a national leader in green construction. Our universities are educating leaders in green building and design. They are filling a well-funded research pipeline with innovations in green manufacturing and green products. An excellent transportation infrastructure also puts manufacturers within easy reach of major population centers. We are within 500 miles of 50 percent of the major retail markets in the U.S. This is an opportunity manufacturers should not miss!
