Commercial, residential, and industrial buildings are responsible for nearly half of all global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Humans also spend almost 90% of their time indoors, making indoor environments a critical component of health and well-being, productivity, and safety. Quantifying the size of the global building stock can be a fundamental tool for understanding and combatting pressing global issues such as energy consumption, GHG emissions, wealth and poverty rates, climate change, and the impact of urbanization on existing local infrastructure.
This version of the Global Building Stock Database represents the sixth edition of the report. Since the last edition, construction markets have recovered slowly, as has the overall global economic outlook, which can be a positive for building stock growth. Other factors, however-such as shifts in the global political landscape, extreme weather events, and other social tumult-add uncertainty to the construction markets, which can hinder building stock development. According to Navigant Research, the total building stock is estimated to grow from 165.8 billion m in 2019b to 184.7 billion m in 2028.
In this report, Navigant Research provides data on the size and growth of the global building stock from 2019 to 2028, as well as a qualitative description of key growth drivers and trends. The building stock data covers eight commercial building types (office, retail, education, healthcare, hotels and restaurants, institutional/assembly, warehouse, and transport) and two residential building types (single-family detached and multi-unit residential) for seven regions worldwide. This study is intended to provide a comprehensive picture of the total commercial and residential building stock around the world.
