Building Materials Industry

Companies across the building materials industry are reorienting go-to-market strategies and adopting next-generation ways of working. BCG has the experience, experts, and global presence to help them succeed.

The building materials industry has long been concerned with cost and the bottom line. Although companies throughout the materials sector are still focused on costs, they’re now prioritizing their go-to-market strategies. Manufacturers, wholesalers, and suppliers are creating plans to reach customers with a value proposition that sets them apart from the competition, and to deliver products and services in a way that transcends shifting economic and market conditions.

Companies throughout the materials sector, for example, are using digital and next-generation sales practices, including remote go-to-market models. For producers, this new focus is reflected in the shift to building materials manufacturing methods that meet higher environmental, social, and governance standards.

Concrete, steel, aluminum, and chemicals—as well as the ships, planes, and trucks that move them—are building blocks of the global economy. But these sectors are also responsible for 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. In order to drive change in these sectors, BCG has partnered with the World Economic Forum to deliver a series of decarbonization strategies for the Mission Possible Partnership.
