Building Thermal Insulation Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The value chain of building thermal insulation starts with raw material suppliers. It includes many small and big chemical and material companies who provide raw materials such as fiber glass, synthetic mineral, metal oxides, volcanic glass, and styrofoam. These raw materials are then facilitated to building thermal insulation manufacturers either by supplying or by integrating itself vertically. According to industry experts, raw material’s cost contributes significant value addition to the overall price of building thermal insulation. These building thermal insulation are then either sold directly to end users or to distributors. The final products are used in applications such as wall insulation, roof insulation, and floor insulation.

The global market size of building thermal insulation was USD 22.73 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 28.39 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 3.50% between 2016 and 2021. The focus on greenhouse gas emission reduction, cost efficiency, and strict government regulations are expected to drive the demand for building thermal insulation market.

The wall insulation application segment dominated the building thermal insulation market in 2015. The market in the roof insulation application is expected to witness the highest growth rate between 2016 and 2021 due to the growing commercial and residential insulation in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The growing construction industry in the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific countries such as China, Japan, and India is also driving the market in this segment.

Several countries and regional organizations including U.S. and European Union have adopted legislation on energy efficient buildings. These legislations are growing stricter day by day and are now covering developing world as well. Stringent energy efficiency regulations for buildings are driving the penetration of insulation in the overall building stock and also increasing the amount of insulation needed per building.

The building thermal insulation market is classified based on type: wool insulation, and plastic foams. The market is dominated by wool insulation owing to its attributes such as higher thermal resistance; R-value (R-value is a measure of thermal resistance, or a material's ability to prevent heat loss), versatility, strength, and life span. The plastic foam insulation segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type of building thermal insulation during the forecast period.

Currently, North America is the largest building thermal insulation market, in terms of value, closely followed by Western Europe. Some of the factors driving the growth of the North American market are growing insulation of residential and commercial buildings.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing building thermal insulation market due to high demand from building thermal insulation in construction industry for both wall, and roof insulation applications. The presence of major developing nations such as China, India, and South Korea is also a major driver of the building thermal insulation market in the region.

Building Thermal Insulation Market

The major restraints of the market are slow growth of construction sector in Europe, and lack of awareness about energy saving among people. Companies are focusing on various strategies to strengthen their market position such as expansion, new product launch, and acquisitions. Expansion is the most preferred strategy adopted by the key market players to sustain in this highly competitive market. The major opportunity for building thermal insulation manufacturers are more energy requirements in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil. Some of the important manufacturers are Knauf Insulation (U.S.), Rockwool International A/S (Denmark), Johns Manville Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Owens Corning Corporation (U.S.), Paroc (Finland), Saint-Gobain (France), GAF (U.S.), Kingspan Group Plc (Ireland), and Beijing New Building Material (China). Companies in this market compete with each other with respect to prices and product offerings to meet the market requirements.
