High adoption of International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) since 2012 particularly in the U.S. has encouraged the product scope in construction industry. Further, government regulations pertaining to limitation on greenhouse gas emission and reduce energy consumption is projected to fuel building thermal insulation market growth.
Technological advancement in multi chamber profiles along building thermal insulation including double or triple insulated glass will fuel the industry growth. High durability, compressive strength, moisture sensitivity, ease of installation, along with better conductivity are key properties stimulating the product demand.
Stringent regulations including European Energy saving regulations (EnEV) standards will support the business growth. Financial aids including low interest loans along with other governmental support including short-term payback period of 2 to 4 years through energy cost savings will propel industry demand.
However, fluctuating crude oil prices influencing the plastic foam usage may hamper the industry demand. Increasing health concerns including prolonged exposure to polyurethane foam leading to asthma, and breathing problems may restrain building thermal insulation market.
Building Thermal Insulation Market, By Material
Wool insulation accounted for over 50% of building thermal insulation market share in 2016. Increasing product demand from residential and commercial buildings will drive the industry growth. Blankets & sheets are the widely used products with temperature sustaining capacity up to 4100 C and thickness varying from 25 to 150 mm.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) material will observe over 4.0% CAGR up to 2024. Process ability, durability, and lightness are major superior properties driving the industry growth in the segment. Higher R-value (low conductivity) of the material makes it suitable to be used in lower quantity as compared to its counterparts for similar thermal resistance.
Polyurethanes market was valued over USD 1.8 billion in 2016. Low thermal conductivity of polyurethane foams is the key factor enhancing the product adoption. Availability of wide range designs, substrates and processes due to its versatility is facilitating product demand.
Building Thermal Insulation Market, By Application
Roof insulation market share is projected to witness around 4% growth up to 2024. Stringent government regulations particularly in the developed countries along with shifting trend towards flat roofs in commercial buildings will propel the industry growth.
Floor accounted for more than 19% of the overall demand in 2016. Rapid urbanization coupled with increasing construction spending will create positive outlook for the product scope in the forecast period.
Wall application was worth over USD 12.2 billion in 2016. Necessity to enhance energy efficiency and weather proofing accompanied by stringent construction standards will drive the product demand. High heat transfer rates accounting for 35% in walls, 25% in roofs and 15% in floors will drive the industry growth.
Building Thermal Insulation Market, By End-Use
Residential segment accounted for more than 56% of building thermal insulation market share in 2016. Rising population, increasing preference for nuclear families along with high consumer spending will provide positive outlook for the industry growth. Further, consumer awareness associated to reducing carbon footprints and energy savings will support product penetration.
Commercial sector will witness gains over 4% up to 2024. Expansion in commercial spaces including shopping malls, convenience stores, and grocery stores will enhance the revenue growth. Necessity for temperature maintenance in commercial shops with centralized air conditioning and insulating materials to provide comfort shopping experience for customers will trigger the demand. Rising demand from manufacturing facilities along with renovation of existing structures are the supporting factors for the product demand.
Building Thermal Insulation Market, By Region
Europe accounted for more than 45% of the overall building thermal insulation market in 2016. Stringent regulations by EnEV, REACH and European Commission are promoting product demand as a part of energy conservation initiative. Germany is the substantial contributor of the market share owing to its well-established automotive industry with giant players including Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen.
Asia Pacific will observe over 4% CAGR in terms of revenue up to 2024. Expansion in construction industry mainly in China, Japan, and India attributes for notable growth in the region. Rising demand for temperature barrier in commercial as well as residential construction will drive the demand.
Increasing government spending on construction particularly in Japan and China to improve commercial and public infrastructure will fuel the product penetration. China construction industry was valued around USD 1.5 trillion and is projected to grow by 4.5% annually till 2020.
MEA, led by Saudi Arabia and UAE market is anticipated to value over USD 320 million by 2024. UAE was third most attractive country for commercial infrastructure spending in 2016. Increasing adoption of energy efficient technologies for reducing the greenhouses gases, hot weather conditions and enhance better business environments will support product development.
Competitive Market Share
Global building thermal insulation market share is fragmented with key industry manufacturers including Saint-Gobain, BASF Polyurethanes, Kingspan Group, CertainTeed, Huntsman International, Johns Manville, Owens Corning, and Dow Building Solutions
