Structural Insulated Panels Market Trends




  • Growing green building initiatives to drive market growth




As per market dynamics, positive green building rules and standards for the use of building insulation materials to reduce overall energy consumption, as well as rising costs for constructing a  cold chain infrastructure, are predicted to boost the industry. Structural insulated panels (SIPs), which are lightweight, have a better external look, and can enhance a building's thermal performance, are anticipated to become widely used worldwide. According to the Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005, builders of new, energy-efficient homes built by the Federal Manufactured Homes Construction and Safety Standards are eligible for a tax credit of up to USD 2,000. Thus such federal policy increases the number of green buildings. Construction sites get structural insulated panels that have been manufactured and are prepared for installation. With their resilience, fireproofing, and exceptional surface polish, metal sheets are becoming a desirable facing material. Insulated metal panels can also be applied directly to the exteriors of buildings because they come in several colors. The expanding construction industry is another factor driving the structural insulated panels market revenue.


With their capacity to save total construction time, structural insulated panels are frequently utilized in the construction of warehouses. As per market data, warehouses and last-mile delivery hubs are in high demand due to the e-commerce sector's expansion. Over 26 million eCommerce sites exist worldwide, and new ones are launched daily. Additionally, the development of regional data centers by well-known technological firms like Amazon, Alibaba, Google, and Microsoft is anticipated to expand the market size.

Structural insulated panels are a widely used building material for cold storage facility construction because they are affordable, environmentally friendly, and long-lasting. Cold storage is essential for many industries, including food processing, food preparation, warehousing, and storage systems, as well as pharmaceutical and retail solutions. By 2023, 1,914 refrigeration storage companies will be operating in the US. The structural insulated panels industry is anticipated to grow as a result of the rise in demand for cold storage systems. Therefore, the trend of using cold storage has enhanced the  market CAGR in recent years.


Structural Insulated Panels Market Segment Insights


Structural insulated panels Product Insights


The structural insulated panels market segmentation, based on product, includes expanded polystyrene, polyurethane insulated, and glass wool. In 2021, polystyrene was the market leader in the structural insulated panels market revenue. With their affordability and resilience to dust and moisture, these products are in high demand, which is responsible for their increase. Polystyrene's robust and durable surface gives greater puncture resistance and earthquake-proof functionality.


April 2021: INEOS Styrolution, Recycling Technologies, and Trinseo announced a key milestone in their efforts to develop commercial polystyrene (PS) recycling plants in Europe. Recycling Technologies was chosen as a technology partner. The qualities of recycled PS will be identical to those of virgin PS. This partnership has further broadened the growth opportunity for the structural insulated panels industry.


Polyurethane structural insulated panels are cheaper than other products, such as polystyrene and glass wool. With their outstanding thermal insulation and vapor diffusion resistance qualities, these panels are frequently used to insulate cold chain storage. Hence, rising applications of polyurethane structures positively impact market growth.


Structural insulated panels Application Insights


According to the structural insulated panels market outlook, the market has been bifurcated by application into residential and commercial. The structural insulated panel's industry is anticipated to be dominated by the residential sector. This is mainly because governments in all regions have implemented benevolent lending regulations that encourage the sales of residential development projects. It is predicted that spending on residential development will increase, especially in the APAC region's developing nations.

As per market research, the commercial sector is the second fastest-growing structural insulated panels industry segment. Adopting favorable green building standards and regulations for building insulation materials to reduce overall energy consumption and increase costs for building cold chain infrastructure worldwide is anticipated to propel the  structural insulated panels market.


Structural insulated panels Regional Insights


By region, the study provides market insights into Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific's structural insulated panels market accounted for USD 3,386.06 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR of 42.6 percent growth during the study period. As per market forecast, the introduction of Energy Conservation Building Codes (ECBC) in nations like India is anticipated to fuel structural insulated panels market revenue growth significantly. Additionally, as packaged and processed food demand rises in the region's nations, the need for cold storage facilities also rises, boosting structural insulated panels market expansion. With the numerous benefits the material offers in this application, growth in the e-Commerce sector is also raising demand for warehouses, which is predicted to enhance the utilization of structural insulated panels. Moreover, China's structural insulated panels market held the largest share, and the Indian structural insulated panels market was the fastest-growing market in the Asia-Pacific region.
