Country Industry Forecast - Social Infrastructure & Labor Analysis for the Canadian Environmental and Building Technologies Industry

Although North America, western Europe, and Japan continue to account for the bulk of the global environmental and building technologies (EBT) industry, the growth rates in these markets have slowed down. The growth potential of the global EBT industry lies with the developing countries of eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Environmental regulations and energy-saving mandates have become increasingly stringent among Asian countries. Integration of business decisions with environmental issues, reduction in global trade barriers, greater globalization, and rising awareness of environmental issues have been driving this industry.
Asian countries have begun investing heavily in environmental technologies and cleaner production processes in line with the increasing integration of the Asian economy. The priority given to investments in infrastructural projects as well as the substantial R&D activities has aided the EBT industry. The political establishments play a critical role in the development of this industry in any country. General economic policies greatly influence this demand-driven industry and industry-specific policies largely facilitate its rapid development.
South Korea, the third largest economy in Asia and the eleventh in the world in 2004, was one of the first to recover from the Asian economic downturn in 1998. Riding on the back of a wide range of economic policies as well as financial and corporate restructuring, it has covered a lot of ground to become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The South Korean EBT industry is expected to expand exponentially due to increasing environmental consciousness as well as privatization and industrial investments. The government encourages new infrastructural projects and the adoption of latest building technologies in such projects. It also supports R&D activities to increase energy efficiency in buildings. International trade agreements signed by South Korea in 2005 are likely to augment the attractiveness of its environmental industry, particularly the environmental equipment segment.
