The acoustic insulation market is mainly driven by factors such as government regulations for controlling noise pollution and the growing interest of consumers towards acoustic insulation for commercial and residential purposes. Rise in construction activities in North America is another factor that is currently driving the market. However, the slow paced construction market in Europe, owing to a feeble economic condition in the region, may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
The acoustic insulation market is segmented, by type into - mineral wool, recycled products, plastic foams, and natural products. The recycled products segment is further divided into rubber and cork products. The plastic foams market is sub-segmented into polypropylene foam, polyester foam, expanded polystyrene and extruded polystyrene foams, expanded polyurethane, and thermoplastic polyurethane foams. The mineral wool segment, consisting of glass wool and stone wool dominated the acoustic insulation market in 2015, with a market share of around 48%. The acoustic insulation market is divided into five major applications, namely: commercial, residential, industrial, automotive, and aerospace and defense. The residential application segment accounted for USD xx.xx million in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.23% in the forecast period (2017 - 2022).
The report has a detailed analysis of the market for major countries such as the United States, Canada, Mexico, Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The USA dominates the acoustic insulation market with a share of xx.xx%. The promising European market for building and construction industry is expected to propel the growth of the acoustic insulation market in the region. Growing construction activities, combined with the renovation of older buildings in North America, is expected to drive the regional demand for acoustic insulation. However, developing economies such as China and India are expected to register the fastest growth in the forecast period, owing to rising construction activities and a substantial change in the consumer lifestyle in these countries.
