Insulation Products Market Trends

  • Insulation in the Building & Construction Industry Drives Market Growth

Insulation in the Building & Construction Industry is driving the market CAGR for Insulation Products. The expanding building and construction industry has increased demand for insulation. Insulation is used in building and construction to maintain an average temperature indoors by minimizing heat transmission between nearby surroundings. It also decreases the carbon footprint by restricting heat conduction to the outside environment and using less energy to keep the interior temperature stable. It has outstanding qualities such as acoustic insulation, fire resistance, and impact resistance for building structures. These characteristics are driving the need for insulation in the building and construction industries. Furthermore, growing industrialization supports the installation of these systems in commercial buildings for energy saving, which is likely to increase the insulation industry demand during the projection period.

For instance, the value of residential and nonresidential building put in place in January 2020 climbed to $567,555 million and $470,986 million, respectively, from $546,532 million and $466,436 million in December 2019. Insulation materials are commonly utilized in the building and construction details of floors, walls, and roofs/ceilings for new building constructions and retrofitting existing buildings to maintain the desired temperature inside the building. As a result, the growing building and construction activities are propelling the insulating materials market revenue.

In addition, consumer demand for quiet, high-performance vehicles will drive growth. Vehicle makers are always investigating high-performance engines. These engines make a lot of noise while running, which is unbearable for the passengers in the vehicle. Engines also produce a lot of energy, which causes the environment to heat up, potentially resulting in catastrophic energy and material losses. As a result, vehicle makers' demand for insulation goods is increasing in order to increase energy efficiency and minimize noise, thereby making the vehicle operable.

Insulation Products Market Segment Insights

Insulation Products Insulation Type Insights

The insulation products market segmentation, based on insulation type includes thermal, acoustic vacuum and others. Thermal category had the largest market share in 2022 and is likely to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period due to rising demand for thermal insulation goods from construction and industrial end users as thermal insulation products are used to preserve heat energy. Thermal insulation materials are used to minimize the amount of heat passed through various portions of buildings, to reduce the energy required for heating or cooling the house, to cut energy costs, and to control greenhouse gas emissions.

Insulation Products Materials Insights

The insulation products market segmentation, based on materials, includes mineral wood, plastic foam, fiberglass and others. The plastic foam segment is predicted to increase at a 7% annual rate. Plastic wool insulation is becoming increasingly popular due to its superior heat resistance, low cost, and minimal vulnerability to insects and moths when compared to naturally derived insulation materials such as sheep wool insulation. Rising environmental concerns and significant rise in the use of recycled materials may have a beneficial impact on the market for plastic wool insulation.

Insulation Products Application Insights

The insulation products market segmentation, based on application, includes residential, commercial, industrial and others. In 2022, the residential category accounted for more than 50% of the insulation market share. The rising number of housing developments, fueled by a strong economic environment and constant increases in disposable income, may open up new opportunities for the business. According to Euro stat data, household investment rates in Cyprus, Finland, the Netherlands, and Germany were 12.5%, 12%, 12%, and 10%, respectively, in 2020. These investments, together with the stringent government regulatory structure aimed at ensuring correct construction regulations and insulation, may encourage product uptake across the residential sector.
