NEW YORK, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The study presents an assessment of the current status and future prospects of the global thermal insulation market. It takes into account the revenues generated from the global thermal insulation material sales from 2011 to 2021. Revenue is recorded at the manufacturer level. The study covers 6 main types of insulation materials ? PUR, PIR, EPS, XPS, stone wool, and glass wool. The end user scope includes residential buildings (single-family housing, multi-family housing, and high-rise) and non-residential buildings (commercial buildings, institutional buildings, and industrial buildings). HVAC systems and technical insulation are not considered within scope. The base year is 2014, with forecasts up to 2021.The study presents an assessment of the current status and future prospects of the global thermal insulation market.

Key Findings

-The thermal insulation market is at the forefront in terms of product development and technological advancements. The market is primarily focused on improving fire retardance properties and recyclable attributes of thermal insulation products. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand for easy-to-install materials as the DIY market is gaining prominence which is driving the loose-fill and spray foam products.
-Growing energy prices and electricity bills have been a major reason for concern in the residential sector, prompting home owners to either insulate their new homes or upgrade their existing insulation system. Accordingly, builders and contractors focus more on insulating the roof as % of the total energy is lost through it in a conventional house. This is expected to be a major driver for the insulation market.
-The growth of most widely used insulation materials such as glass wool and expanded polystyrene (EPS) is expected to slow down due to market saturation in regions such as Europe and North America. Furthermore, the demand for insulation materials which offer higher R-values and superior fire resistance to meet the codal requirements is expected to bring down the demand of the aforementioned materials and make way for premium products such as polyisocyanurate (PIR) and extruded polystyrene (XPS).
-Dynamics in the thermal insulation market focus around new construction and refurbishment opportunities in both residential and non-residential sectors which differ across regions. For instance, the market is heavily inclined towards refurbishment projects in Europe due to the lack of new construction; while in the Asia-Pacific (APAC), the market is driven by the non-residential sector.
-APAC will continue to lead the market in terms of volume and growth potential in correlation to the faster growing application segments. The rest of the world (ROW) region is expected to be the second-fastest growing market, with Russia and Turkey emerging as the market hotspots for thermal insulation manufacturers. North America and Europe are expected to witness moderate growth due to the resurgence in construction activities.
