DUBLIN, January 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t5kbvv/5_critical_hot) has announced the addition of the "5 Critical Hot Spots in the Building Industry in Asia-Pacific in 2014" report to their offering.
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 safety 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.
In 2014, there are five main areas that market participants in Asia-Pacific's building industry may consider focusing on:
- Green Buildings
- Disaster-shield Buildings
- Smart Buildings
- Resource Conservation
- Solar-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 treduce consumptionand 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 minimizeenergy consumption. Solar energy has been generating attention of late due tthe 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.
