Recycled concrete, ENERGY STAR-compliant HVAC systems, and permeable pavements are forecast to register above average gains through 2017. Green structural building product demand will be driven by increasing use of recycled concrete, as concrete made with fly ash and other additives features superior performance properties and is less costly than concrete made solely from cement and aggregates. Demand for green building systems will be fueled by strong residential demand for ENERGY STAR-compliant HVAC systems that lower utility bills. Permeable pavement demand will be supported by interest in reducing water runoff and minimizing strains on older sewer and water systems.

, an upcoming Freedonia industry study available for
. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, as well as forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product, market, and region of the US. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 39 players in the US industry, such as Bridgestone, Mohawk Industries, Shaw Industries, Trane, and USG.
