A significant rise in consumer awareness pertaining to energy conservation coupled with the increasing carbon footprint in Asia Pacific and the MEA will enhance product penetration. Consumers are focusing on the sustainable development of building construction, which will further proliferate product demand. Thermal insulation in buildings can reduce fossil fuel consumption, in turn, drastically leading to a decrease in the adverse effects on the climate & environment. Low maintenance & nominal operational costs with high energy efficiency will proliferate green building development projects globally.

Furthermore, the sustained workload in the public sector in areas including civil engineering and public housing has supported the construction industry in developed nations, making prices broadly stable and proliferating the overall building thermal insulation market.

However, the global construction sector has been negatively impacted due to the adverse impacts of COVID-19. Lower oil prices and strict government regulations have slowed global economic growth. Surging COVID-19 cases in many regions and the shutdown of the construction sector for a longer period have largely impacted the industry. Nevertheless, rapid urbanization and industrial development activities will likely propel market statistics.

Robust demand for wool insulation will sustain the market growth

Open cell material (wool insulation) is poised to dominate the industry with more than USD 18 billion revenue by 2028. Key features including high thermal property, effective cost-efficiency, and durability will enhance business expansion. The growing need for glass wool in the thermal insulation market is attributed to its various properties including soundproofing, versatility, non-flammability, and low maintenance costs. The abundant availability of resources, low carbon footprint, easy installation, energy-efficient insulation, and incombustibility of the material will further support the industry's material scope.
