Building insulation is used to reduce the amount of power required to heat or cool a home and minimize the amount of heat that escapes during the winter and limits the hot summer air to penetrate into the house. Building insulation tends to be the most cost effective measure in climates that have a wide range of annual average temperatures. The advent of regulations throughout the globe supporting energy efficient buildings is boosting the market for insulation in commercial and residential buildings. The building insulation materials are used in a variety of applications which include external wall, internal wall, cavity wall, floors, flat roof and pitched roof.

The global market for building insulation is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2015 to 2020. The growth is boosted with the dominating wool market in North America and European region and plastic foams in Asian region. Countries such as France, U.K., Poland and Germany are some of the key growing regions for building insulation in Europe. The energy saving initiatives and continuous modifications in the building regulations have been helpful in supporting the market growth. The Asian market is growing with the expansion of real estate sector throughout the continent in the countries such as India and China. Rising rural to urban migrations in the region is stimulating the housing construction in urban areas; consequently increasing the consumption of insulation materials.

Application of insulation materials in the residential applications has been a key driving factor for the North American building insulation market. Increased focus on energy efficient building, stringent requirements for insulation and new building codes have generated awareness in building insulation within the region.
