Rise in the global population and migration of people to urban areas each day for a better quality of life will significantly trigger product demand in housing infrastructure, creating a massive consumption in the industry. Ongoing technological advancements across various precast, modular, and prefabricated building structures, specially designed for residential & commercial infrastructure, will propel product demand. Furthermore, shifting consumer preferences toward energy-saving building materials and equipment as well as rising applications of materials with high R-value in large & small-scale buildings are anticipated to boost exterior wall system industry expansion.

Fluctuating raw material prices is poised to restrain market growth; however, a positive outlook for urban infrastructure coupled with increasing government spending on housing/commercial infrastructure will catalyze market growth.

Rising importance of ventilation in building spaces to support market growth

Ventilated segment is likely to witness over 8% CAGR through 2027. These allow fresh air in the building and removes the moisture-laden and stale air outside. By limiting air exchange to control ventilation, exterior wall systems homes allow external air to be filtered for allergens and dehumidified, producing better quality of indoor air.

The growing importance of ventilation and airtightness of the exterior wall enable air to enter the building interiors in controlled amounts will positively influence exterior wall system market penetration. A controlled indoor ventilated environment is both healthy and comfortable for occupants and less prone to mold growth and dust mites.

Easy and cost-effective repair solutions to surge revenue generation of stucco segment

The exterior wall system market from Stucco segment is set to generate more than USD 70 billion in revenue by 2027. Rising demand in walls to fix hairline cracks without making the patch-up more noticeable than the defect is expected to fuel market expansion. Cracks between 1/8 to 1/4 inch can be restored by scraping out the topcoats to expose the scratch coat. The material also stands up well to moisture in cold climates and can be coated with elastomeric coatings. Moreover, its wide usage for a variety of wall finishing applications and easy & cost-effective repair solutions will influence the market revenue.

In 2020, residential applications accounted for around USD 110 billion propelled by increasing consumer awareness pertaining to rising electricity bills and the necessity for energy-efficient building solutions. These have stimulated the product demand across residential & commercial buildings. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), electricity consumption for heating accounted for over 50% of global electricity consumption in 2018. The necessity for effective energy conservation due to the rising energy demand along with growing concerns regarding resource scarcity will spur the exterior wall system market size by 2027.

The implementation of several programs such as LEED, Energy Star building certification, and ICC’s Model Energy Codes is influencing industry dynamics. Regulatory authorities are continuously focusing on reducing heat transfers through the building envelope and are employing legislation, which will promote zero-energy buildings.
