In 2021, European Building Renovation market was valued at US$956.88 billion in 2021, and is expected to reach up to US$1012.47 billion in 2026. Building renovation provides their services by offering energy & non-energy renovation solutions to homeowners. The significance for building renovation is increasing as buildings are responsible for generating 36% of green house gas emission in EU.

Building Renovation is serving as a potential way to tackle climate change while simulatenously creating employment opportunities for the people. In building renovation, focus would be on increasing the rate of deep renovation, as it has the potential of saving energy up to or more than 60%.
