Environmental Technology & Greentech
Statistics and Market Data on Environmental Technology & Greentech
In this section, Statista presents the most relevant and up-to-date facts relating to the clean technology industry.
One of the industry’s main goals is to increase the world’s energy-efficiency, and to make the planet more environmentally benign. In order that these goals be achieved, the sector provides several other industries with the necessary technologies. The chief industry areas served by the environmental technology sector include clean city development, smart grid
implementation, clean water provision, offshore and onshore wind turbine production, solar photovoltaic
cell and module manufacturing, waste and wastewater
management services, recycling services, green building construction and LED lighting
deployment. To be classified as clean technology (or clean-tech), environmental technology projects need to fulfill a number of requirements, including the energy and resource-efficient use of sustainable materials.
Thanks to supportive government policies, the green technology sector continues to attract investors
across the globe. Although not particularly feted for its environmental awareness, China has became one of the largest renewable energy investment markets. Some of the key players in the highly fragmented clean technology industry include Wärtsilä, Hyundai, Vestas, NovaLED, Yingli, Tesla, Siemens, IBM and General Electric.
