Increasing government initiatives to promote sustainable building measures and the construction of passive houses will further boost the ICF market revenue. Cement-bonded fiber materials used in insulated concrete forms utilize about 85% to 90% recycled materials, depending upon the specific requirements of the manufacturer.

Furthermore, the increasing popularity of durable and advanced building insulation among builders & contractors to meet energy-saving goals and energy conservation norms will support industry growth. However, technical benefits including efficient vapor barrier, enhanced strength, and impact resistance properties offered by insulated concrete forms are expected to steer ICF demand.

Rising adoption of polystyrene foams will complement the market statistics

The polystyrene foam material segment held around 60% of the insulated concrete form market share in 2020 and is projected to grow at 6.7% CAGR through 2027. They are used in the production of a wide variety of consumer products and foams used in walls & roofs of buildings owing to their insulating and cushioning properties. Polystyrene foam is lightweight and can contain over 95% air. It has an R-value between 2 to 5 per inch of thickness.
