This report covers the market for extruded polystyrene (XPS) thermal insulation products in Europe and is drawn from the author's 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 2015. The author has many years of expertise researching the thermal insulation markets of Europe. This is the eleventh edition of this study.

Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)

For extrusion, polystyrene with a high viscosity is most suitable, i.e. products with a melt volume index (MVI) of 200/5 in the lower end of the range between 1 and 7ml/10min. The physical properties of XPS mean that it can be used in board form in roofing, flooring and walling applications.

The low moisture absorption of the material makes it ideal for use in cold storage facilities and refrigerated transport, where it is subjected to freeze/thaw cycles. The high compressive strength of the material also makes it ideal for load-bearing applications. XPS does not rot and has relatively high thermal insulation properties.

Due to its cost, XPS tends to be used in specialist areas where its particular properties are specifically required.

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.
