The UK market for building insulation has recovered somewhat in 2014 as housebuilding levels have continued to rise and initiative such as the Green Deal and ECO has gained some momentum. This followed a significant downturn in 2013 due to a fall in government-subsidised retrofitted installation activity, which saw the total market value fall by around 7%. Although there has been growth in demand for insulation products from increasing levels of new housebuilding and in non-domestic building, the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) have so far only generated a fraction of the levels of domestic installation activity of previous government initiatives such as CERT and CESP, which ended in 2012.

Other key market influences include Building Regulations and energy prices. The Building Regulations Part L 2013 were updated with an aim of reducing carbon emissions by a further 6% on top of the 2010 standard for new domestic buildings, and by 9% for new non-domestic buildings. Although crude oil and gas prices have fallen recently, over the longer-term energy prices are forecast to rise, which is likely to result in higher end-product prices for insulation products.

PUR / PIR products now have the largest market share of insulation products, accounting for ~40% by value in 2014. By end-user, despite the dramatic fall in demand under the Green Deal and ECO, the most important market remains domestic retrofit, which accounts for ~40% by area installed and the key areas of demand by application have been cavity walls and lofts. The non-domestic market is also significant and mainly consists of insulation for flat roofs and site-built metal cladding and roofing systems. The share for new housebuilding is higher than in recent years due to steadily rising numbers of housing completions.

The key supply route for insulation products are the specialist (interiors) distributors. Builders' merchants account for approximately 15% of the market, the remainder being split between direct sales to installers, direct sales to external wall insulation systems companies, converters and DIY stores. The installation market is polarised between a small number of national companies and many regional and local independent firms. The leading contractors typically provide other energy efficiency services as well as insulation work.
