Industry Study with Forecasts for 2020 & 2025

Many factors, such as construction activity, population, gross domestic product (GDP), industrial output, and environmental and regulatory issues, affect demand for insulation. Through 2020, developing countries are expected to account for the majority of insulation demand gains due to above average growth in countries such as China, India, and Indonesia. Find out more about the global market potential for insulation in Freedonia’s new study.

This study will answer the questions::
- Which markets are projected to provide the best opportunities for growth for insulation?
- Which insulation product types are expected to gain market share going forward, and at the expense of which competing product types?
- How do regulatory changes and environmental concerns affect global insulation demand?


Residential construction trends to drive growth
Sustained growth in residential building construction will be the largest driver of global insulation demand. In North America, for example, demand for insulation in the residential construction market will grow 4.0 percent per annum in R-1 value, due primarily to continued expansion in US housing construction activity. Residential building construction in Western Europe is forecast to accelerate through 2020, boosting insulation sales in many regional countries.

Migration stimulates building activity
Rural-to-urban migration in developing countries in the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions will stimulate building activity in urban areas and therefore insulation demand, as urban buildings are usually more insulation intensive than those in rural areas. Additionally, rising per capita incomes will encourage the use of modern building techniques and building materials, including insulation. In some countries in the Africa/Mideast and Asia/Pacific regions, the adoption of minimum insulation requirements will also contribute to demand.

Greater activity in nonresidential & manufacturing
Rising nonresidential construction worldwide, including an expected rebound in Western Europe, will drive insulation usage. Additionally, insulation demand in the industrial, HVAC, and OEM markets will be boosted by expanding manufacturing activity, appliance output, and HVAC system installations.

Foamed plastic insulation to grow the most rapidly
Of the major insulation types, the foamed plastic segment will post the fastest gains in demand. Foamed plastic insulation will be used more frequently in construction applications because of its high insulation values, allowing it to capture market share from fiberglass and mineral wool insulation. Demand for fiberglass insulation will benefit from strong growth in residential construction activity in North America, as this product is used extensively in the US and Canada. Mineral wool products are expected to post the slowest growth among major insulation materials, though gains will still be solid. Growing demand in China, where fire safety is a large concern, will boost mineral wool demand.

Study coverage
World Insulation offers historical data plus forecasts for 2020 and 2025 for supply and demand, as well as demand by market and product, in six regions and 26 countries. The study also examines materials utilized (foamed plastics, fiberglass, mineral wool, other). In addition, the study considers key market environment factors, assesses the industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles industry players worldwide such as CSR Limited, Fletcher Building, Owens Corning and ROCKWOOL.
