This report covers the market for expanded polystyrene (EPS) thermal insulation products in Europe and is drawn from the study set on The European Market for Thermal Insulation Products. It updates the author's last edition of the aforementioned study which was last published in 2017. The author has many years of expertise researching the thermal insulation markets of Europe. This is the Eleventh edition of this study.

EPS is a relatively low cost material with excellent insulating properties. Its lightweight nature means that it adds little to structural weight, yet still offers high dimensional stability. The foam is closed cell and therefore resistant to water penetration, although it is not a water vapour barrier. EPS does not deteriorate, it is non-toxic, non-irritant, and does not contain blowing agents. EPS has a low thermal conductivity and therefore good thermal insulation properties. Its chief disadvantages are its susceptibility to physical damage, its flammability characteristics, and its low resistance to chemical attack, including substances like dilute acids, alkalis, methanol and i-propanol. EPS foam can also be used at extremely low temperatures without any time restriction.

EPS is typically encountered in three forms:
(i)        As rigid lightweight slab or board for use in wall, floor and roof insulation and cavity fill
(ii)       EPS sheet bonded to plaster for use in dry lining and roofing extensions
(iii)       Loose fill bead for use in cavity fill and loft insulation

Methodology
The information comprised in this study is based on both secondary and primary sources. The desk research examined relevant technical and trade journals, published official statistics, and figures derived from trade associations. The primary interview programme included high-level respondents in companies manufacturing, distributing and/or installing thermal insulation materials.

Actual consumption figures are provided for 2016, which has been taken as the base year. Figures are in volume (m3 and tonnes) and value (€). Typical densities have been used to convert between the different volume units, and common prices have been used to convert from volume to value. However, it must be noted that material densities and prices can vary significantly for a given material according to the product’s intended end use.

The study also presents five-year forecasts to 2021, derived from industry and economic indicators, as well as other relevant legislative, commercial and/or technical issues likely to affect individual countries, thermal insulation materials and products, and the end uses to where these are applied.
