New Report Sheds Light on Growing Energy-Efficient Home Renovations, Forecasts Market Through 2013

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 19, 2009) - SBI Energy, a leading industrial market research publisher, has added "Energy-Efficient Home Renovations Market, Full Report" to its growing sustainable power catalog.

The report combines the major themes of SBI Energy's three-part home renovation series published in correlation with the Obama administration's ongoing support of renewable energy through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus package, which expanded government tax credits for green home remodeling products.

"Energy-Efficient Home Renovations Market, Full Report" provides a focused look at the world of home energy-efficient remodeling as it exists today, and shows where the market is headed in the next five years. The report highlights key players in the industry, and pinpoints ways current and prospective competitors can capitalize on recent trends and spearhead new ones. Featured chapters are dedicated to the market for energy-efficient windows and door products; caulking, weather stripping, and insulation products; dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, and water heaters; compact fluorescent lighting and lighting fixtures; heating and cooling equipment; and thermal roofing products.

SBI Energy forecasts the expanded tax credits -- in addition to the steadily improving economy -- will boost the market for energy-efficient home renovation products as increasingly confident consumers fortify their domestic eco-friendliness. From 2009 to 2013, the energy-efficient home remodeling market is projected to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15%, growing 50% faster than the renovations market as a whole. According to the report, the energy-efficient market will reach $35 billion and will go from claiming 12% of the home renovations market to 15% by the end of the forecast period.

"The growth will come as a result of the tax credits, new incentives, and the reality that more agencies and utilities are promoting the fact that adding improved energy efficiency is the most cost effective way to decrease home utility bills," says Norman Deschamps, author and SBI Energy analyst. "Consumers are willing to pay more for green and energy-efficient products, but they expect a return in the long term. Consider the tax credits a step in the right direction."
