Fireproof Insulation Market worth over $30bn by 2027

  • Published Date: April 14, 2021

Fireproof Insulation Market size is set to surpass USD 30 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising population, environmental changes, and urbanization have positively impacted the global construction sector and have significantly fueled the demand for smart & sustainable infrastructure solutions. Effective building construction approaches in order to provide safety planning, designing & integration have been a key growth enabler of the industry. Additionally, government initiatives are further propelling the construction industry growth and therefore playing a crucial role in the fireproof insulation material demand. For instance, in 2014, India adopted Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC). The initiative encouraged energy-efficient building construction in the nation. The building cost can be minimized by limiting energy usage by 40% to 60%. Economic growth in rapidly evolving countries is bolstering the demand for better infrastructure options. The easy availability of fire insulating materials, government initiatives, and construction sector growth are the major factors driving the market share.

Moreover, the aggressive greenhouse and carbon footprint alleviation targets set by several developing and developed nations are also stimulating the market growth. These aggressive targets are resulting in incorporation of stringent building insulation norms with a high priority on energy savings and fire safety, thus catalyzing the product demand.
