The flexible insulation market size was USD 7.77 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 10.84 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.54% from 2016 to 2021. In this study, 2015 has been considered the base year, and 2016–2021 the forecast period to estimate the market size of flexible insulation.

Objectives of the study:

  • To analyze and forecast the market size of flexible insulation in terms value and volume
  • To define, describe, and segment the global flexible insulation market by material, and insulation type
  • To forecast the sizes of the market segments based on regions such as the Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • To provide detailed information regarding the important factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, challenges and opportunities)
  • To strategically analyze the segmented markets with respect to individual growth trends, prospects, and contribution to the overall market
  • To identify and analyze opportunities for stakeholders in the market
  • To analyze competitive developments such as expansions,  joint ventures, agreements, acquisitions, and new product developments in the global flexible insulation market
  • To strategically profile key players and comprehensively analyze their core competencies

Research Methodology:

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both, bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for material (fiberglass, elastomer and others); insulation type (thermal, acoustic, and electrical) and for various regions (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, Middle East & Africa) is identified through both, secondary and primary research. The overall flexible insulation market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual market sizes. For future growth (CAGRs) trends of flexible insulation, the insulation type–thermal, acoustic and electrical have been analyzed. The secondary resources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies; white papers; certified publications; articles from recognized authors; and gold standard & silver standard websites such as Factiva, ICIS, Bloomberg, and so on. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and other executives. The breakdown of profiles of the primary interviewees is illustrated in the figure below:

The flexible insulation market is projected to reach USD 10.84 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.54% from 2016 to 2021.The global flexible insulation market is expected to be driven by the growing demand from end-use industries such as building & construction, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) and the transportation sector. Flexible insulations are those insulations which can be applied successfully or flexibly in those applications wherein other materials cannot be used. Flexible insulations are used to save energy, maintain process temperatures, provide fire & sound protection, and prevent condensation.

Fiberglass insulation accounts for the largest share in the material segment. The market for fiberglass insulation is estimated to witness significant growth owing to the increasing usage in various applications due to its lightweight, non-combustible, high tear strength and corrosion-resistant nature. Also, fiberglass finds usage in various applications such as thermal insulation for pipe work in HVAC industries, flexible air ducts, residential and commercial refrigerators & freezers, jet-engine ducting, aircraft component, and commercial construction.

Thermal insulation is estimated to witness the largest share in the insulation type market. This is because thermal insulation provides a comfortable and hygienic indoor climate at low ambient temperatures. Also, growing use of thermal insulation for low temperature, intermediate temperature, and high temperature insulations is expected to drive its demand.

The European region is the largest market for flexible insulation, in terms of both, value and volume. The strict building energy codes, accompanied by European Union Directives to improve efficiency in buildings is expected to drive the demand for flexible insulation in the region. Strong demand for flexible insulation from the housing sector in countries like Germany is another reason for the growth of the flexible insulation market.
