Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Sustainable Building Material Market

The advent of COVID-19 led to a significant decline in the demand for sustainable building materials during 2020. The construction industry was one of the worst-hit industries among others. The stringent imposition of mobility measures led to a low number of active construction projects.

In addition, the uncertainty posed by the global pandemic led to a downfall in the real estate sector as a result of low consumer confidence. Consequently, it resulted in the cancellation & halt of the ongoing construction projects, including green building projects. The halt in the projects also led to delays in project deliveries.

Therefore, in 2020, the demand for sustainable building materials declined sharply. In addition, the gradual revival of the construction industry contributed to the recovery of demand for sustainable building materials in 2021. Hence, the impact of COVID-19 on sustainable building materials would diminish with the resumption of ongoing & new sustainable buildings across the globe.
