Geographical Coverage: Baltic States, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia

SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This report covers the market for thermal insulation products in Other Eastern European Countries (Baltic States, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia)) and updates one of the volumes of IAL Consultants’ study set on The European Market for Thermal Insulation Products, which was last published in 2011. IAL Consultants has many years of expertise researching the thermal insulation markets of Europe and, more recently, China and Brazil. This is the ninth edition of this study.

METHODOLOGY

The study is based on desk research and an extensive series of interviews. The desk research covered the relevant technical and trade journals, published official statistics, figures derived by trade associations and the data bank of IAL Consultants. This data bank has been built up over the last twenty years from a series of studies covering products in building, construction and process plant industries, including paints, plastics, adhesives, sealants, polyurethanes and flame retardants.

The interview programme included high-level respondents in companies manufacturing, distributing and installing thermal insulation materials.

PRODUCTS COVERED

Factors affecting the type and amount of thermal insulation required include:
- Climate
- Durability
- Ease of installation and replacement at end of life
- Cost effectiveness
- Toxicity
- Flammability
- Environmental impact and sustainability

Although a short description of each of the types of insulation discussed within this study is given below, it should be noted that a combination of materials is often used.
