Sustainability Issues will Continue to Shed New Perspectives on Buildings

The market outlook focus on five important areas in the building industry that have the potential for business opportunities for market participants in the Asia-Pacific region. Driven by government initiatives, property developers are shifting their business focus on sustainable and resource efficient buildings. The building industry is challenged by rising resources costs such as energy, water, and raw materials for building construction. In addition, the changing global climate is expected to place saftey of buildings at risk. This will likely entail immense business prospects in green buildings, smart buildings, disaster-shield buildings, solar-powered buildings, and resource conservation.

Executive Summary

• In 2014, there are five main areas that market participants in Asia-Pacific’s building industry may consider focusing on:
oGreen Buildings
oDisaster-shield Buildings
oSmart Buildings
oResource Conservation
oSolar-powered Buildings

• Driven by government initiatives, property developers are shifting their business focus on sustainable and resource-efficient buildings. Green buildings are generally designed and built to reduce consumption and reliance on energy, water, and building construction materials.
• In smart buildings, the performance of the building is enhanced, as all components are integrated to work together with the help of systems, technologies, and tools that will ultimately manage and minimize energy consumption.
• Solar energy has been generating attention of late due to the depletion of non-renewable and polluting natural resources such as crude oil, natural gas, and coal. Solar energy is being explored as a renewable and energy-efficient technology that is widely used in green buildings.
• The change in weather patterns and frequent natural disasters in Asia-Pacific will compel market participants to introduce disaster-shield building concepts.
• Resource conservation, which entails the recycling and reuse of industrial materials and construction/demolition waste for the purpose of new construction, is gaining popularity. Besides minimizing waste that negatively impacts the environment, waste materials may be engineered to possess better properties than conventional building materials.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Government initiatives and public interest in green buildings will spur the green buildings market.
2. Deployment of an information and communications technology (ICT) platform in building automation infrastructure will intensify the development of smart buildings.
3. Disaster-shield buildings should be the focus area for mitigating the effects of climate change and natural disasters.
4. Resource conservation is identified as a key development to reduce the dependence on increasingly costly conventional raw materials.
5. Solar energy is expected to pioneer the renewable energy market in buildings due to its minimal negative impact to the environment.
