Summary Methodology

Active Insulation Market size is likely to show significant gains till 2025 owing to rising use in building & construction sector and increasing use of sportswear and sports apparel. Active insulation is an insulating material that is primarily used to regulate the temperature inside buildings and in textile fabrics.

Active insulation’s energy efficiency when used in building & construction, government regulations to promote sustainability and increasing health awareness worldwide may contribute significantly to active insulation market growth.

The ability of active insulation to regulate the core body temperature without being heavy and promoting breathability should stimulate the active insulation market demand in the clothing segment. Increasing awareness of health & fitness may contribute to more people indulging in physical activities such as yoga, swimming, cycling, sports and workouts, which can boost product demand in the playwear segment. Global sportswear market size is estimated to exceed USD 105 billion by 2025 owing to rising health awareness and increasing number of sports facilities & fitness clubs, which indicates ample market growth potential.

Active insulation is likely to witness strong demand in building & construction owing to the product’s ability to allow warmth to enter or exit a building depending on the temperature. This reduces the energy costs of air conditioning and promotes sustainability. Global construction market size could approach about USD 15 trillion in the forecast period, on account of rising industrialization and population rise in China & India and infrastructure modernization coupled with a growing population in the U.S., which could create new growth opportunities for active insulation market size.

The most commonly used active insulation products are polyester, expanded polystyrene and glass wool which find application in diverse industries. Polyester is a preferred product in the textile industry owing to various benefits such as low price, shrink resistance and being able to dry quickly. Expanded polystyrene is commonly used in the building & construction sector on account of several desirable features such as good quality and high thermal resistance. Glass wool is also preferred in construction applications as a low-cost lining material owing to its ability to deal with temperature fluctuations and reduce energy consumption.

North America active insulation market demand led by the U.S., Mexico, and Canada should witness significant growth owing to the presence of several major textile manufacturers and strong growth in construction & building application in the region. U.S. textile market is estimated to cross USD 380 billion till 2025, owing to rising automotive production domestically and increasing number of single family homes, which could steer product demand.

Asia Pacific, led by South Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, India and China active insulation market size could show rapid growth owing to rising industrialization, disposable incomes, increasing sportswear use and rising demand from the textile sector in the region. Government initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and rising construction activities in the region could also act as a growth stimulant. India construction market size is predicted to reach approximately USD 1 trillion by 2025 pertaining to growing demand for affordable housing, which is an indicator of ample growth opportunities in the region.

Europe active insulation market size, led by Spain, France, U.K and Germany may grow significantly in the forecast period on account of increasing government regulations in favor of product use for building & construction application in the region. Increasing innovative practices in the region to improve moisture diffusion and energy transfer capabilities of the product is likely to boost market growth. European construction market size surpassed USD 85 billion in 2017 primarily owing to increasing development of residential buildings, cheap credit, favorable investment conditions, and economic recovery, which can boost growth of active insulation market size.

Active insulation market share is less competitive and offers a high scope of market expansion with a few major participants such as Primaloft, Economical Building Systems, Polartech and HDWool. Companies prefer to focus on research and development initiatives to develop new products with enhanced breathability and thermal regulation for casual and sportswear use, which is likely to stimulate the market growth.
