The construction industry dates back to the early 1600s when the basic materials such as animal skins, fur, wool, and plant related products were used for enveloping the buildings. The construction industry has proven to be one of the major sources of pollution, accountable for approximately 4% of particulate emissions, 30% of the greenhouse gas emissions, and constitute for more than 4% of the water and noise pollution. The construction industry contributes to more than 30% of all the global emission sources. Along with the rising pollution levels, rapid population growth and high energy consumption are the other key concerns of various regulatory bodies across the globe.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an international body for the assessment of climate change, set by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), buildings are the largest energy-consuming sector with nearly 40.0% of the global electricity consumed and are responsible for approximately 36.0% of the global carbon emissions (CO2). This is because of the inefficient thermal insulation systems around the building envelop which lead to significant loss of energy. Similarly, according to the European Union (EU), buildings in Europe consume approximately 40.0% of energy and produce approximately 35.0% of greenhouse emissions. Thereby, the European Union has recognized the construction segment to be the largest untapped area for energy savings in both the new and existing buildings. It has undoubtedly been the root cause of degradation the built environment. Thus, high energy consumption and its related costs are one of the major concerns for the regulatory bodies in the recent years.

With the advent of the technological era, the construction methods, materials, and insulation materials have developed considerably. Insulation materials are primarily any material or substance which assists in preventing heat, electricity and noise from entering or leaving the premises. Some of the significant insulation materials used are mineral wool, expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene, polyethylene, and fiberglass, among others. The insulation materials are widely used in the construction, oil and gas, wires and cables, and automotive industries, among others.

The major drivers for the global insulation materials market are significant reduction in energy consumption and its related costs, stringent regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase of net zero energy buildings, and population growth and urbanization. However, volatile raw material prices and lack of awareness about insulation materials in the construction industry may hamper the growth of the market.

There is a tremendous potential for the growth of insulation materials in the global market owing to the rising demands from end-user industries such as HVAC and OEM, oil and gas, wires and cables, and automobiles, among others, rising concern for changing climatic conditions and global warming, and increasing energy conservation regulations and greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

The global insulation materials market is expected to reach $53,360.5 million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2016 and 2021. This enormous growth is being anticipated due to the various benefits provided by insulation materials such as environmental benefits, emission reduction, less energy consumption, and the material’s potential to be recycled and reused. These factors have contributed to the colossal demand of the insulation materials. Additionally, an increasing number of applications of insulation materials owing to their emission reduction potential, the building rating systems, stringent government regulations & emission control norms, and large-scale investment by government and federal agencies are some of the other factors propelling the growth of insulation materials market globally.  

Regulatory Impact

The insulation-based buildings are assessed on the basis of certain parameters of energy, environment and ecology, considering both the social and technological aspects of all the projects, by the environmental assessment bodies such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA), Green Globes, Energy Star, among others. The building performances are evaluated during the initial stages of a project and the results are incorporated in the future design developmental stage of the building.

Insulation materials are designed to reduce the heat flow by limiting heat transfer through conduction, convection, and radiation while facilitating vapour flow and water condensation of a process. The insulation materials can be of the following types such as mineral wool, polyurethane foam, polyethylene, extruded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, and fiberglass. In 2016, mineral wool dominated the global insulation materials market as it serves as an excellent insulation material for thermal and acoustic insulation which are mainly used in residential and commercial buildings. On the other hand, the increasing demand of polyurethane foam as an insulation material from the construction sector is because of its light weight, ease of installation, reduced transportation costs, and low maintenance costs.

Insulation materials have applications in a vast range of end-user markets such as wires and cables, residential construction, non-residential, HVAC and OEM, automotive, and oil and gas, among others. Insulation has been one of the most cost-effective solution to reduce energy consumption in the residential buildings. This increasing demand of insulation materials from residential construction segment is because of increasing need of reducing the energy consumption in the residential segment. Increasing construction expenditures in Asia-Pacific region along with the government initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is expected to increase the demand of insulation materials in the residential construction segment.

The demand for insulation materials vary according to various geographical regions. The insulation materials market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, and Rest of the World (RoW). The Asia-Pacific market accounted for major share in the total revenue in the year 2016. The region is reported to have highest growth rate as compared to the others because of the high growth in the automotive, construction, and telecommunication industries along with rapid industrialization and digitalization. Increasing insulation demand from the Asia-Pacific region is majorly attributed to growing automotive, construction and industrial sectors. Additionally, low cost of setting up of manufacturing facilities and low cost of insulation materials in the region further propels the demand of insulation materials in the Asia-Pacific market.

Competitive Landscape

The global insulation materials market is a highly competitive industry, with all its players competing to gain a greater market share. Rockwool International A/S, Knauf Insulation, Covestro AG, Owens Corning, and Saint-Gobain S.A. are some of the leading companies in this market.
