Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market - Global Industry Analysis & Forecast to 2027

Published On: April 2016

Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market

Global Insulated Concrete Form or ICF are structures used to hold fresh concrete that stays set up forever to give protection to the structure they encase. Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) result in cast set up theconcrete wall that is sandwiched between two layers of protection material. These frameworks are solid and vitality efficient.  This technique of construction was first developed in Europe during the Second World War as an economical and resilient way to rebuild damaged structures.

Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market has grown very rapidly in past ten years and North America has become the top most growing building system. However, North America is dominating the overall market of the Global insulated concrete form (ICF) followed by APAC and Europe. This market has witnessed superior growth in developed regions of North America, Europe, MEA, and APAC. This market has experienced and expected to grow in the developing region and has potential scope to capture the market because of the existence of settled real estate market.

Market Growth Influencer

Since 1970, the acceptance of ICF construction has progressively increased though it was primarily hindered by building codes, lack of awareness and confusion caused by many different manufacturers selling slightly different ICF designs rather than focusing on industry standardization. Insulated concrete form (ICF) construction is now part of most building codes and acknowledged in most jurisdictions in the developed globe.

The major factor of growing the Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market is the presence of several well-settled construction companies in North America. In North America, the Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market has grown XX% to XX% in the past year. So, here the market has prospective growth. Followed by Europe and APAC the Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) market is also playing a vital role as the construction industries over here are much more relying on Insulated Concrete Form because of the pricing factor. The constructions which are made by Insulated Concrete Formhave gained a momentum over the other construction methods with a very reasonable price. In the developing region such as India, China and Japan have anticipated the fastest growing market in the world. Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) is facing challenges in the cold regions where most of the residential properties are constructed by special wood. So here the growing opportunity for Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) market is very mild and limited.

Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market: Regional Analysis

Geographically, the Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Market is divided into various regions such as Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Rest of the world. The developed regions of North America and Europe have anticipated the tremendous growth in this market by capturing a large number of constructions industries. In developing region of Latin America and APAC especially in Brazil, Argentina, China, India, and Japan where the market is booming and there are ample opportunity to grow as huge population and rising demands of residential and commercial properties. The market may face difficulty to grow in underdeveloped regions of the Middle East and Africa where the poverty ratio is very high and lack of stable constructions industries. This all factor has played a major role in the Global Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) market.
