Residential Insulation in the US by Material, Project Type, Housing Type, Area of Building and Region

US demand for residential insulation products is projected to increase 2.6% per year to 4.9 billion pounds in 2022. Continued growth in single-family housing construction, as well as increasingly stringent building codes and rising awareness of insulation’s role in energy efficiency in residential buildings, will boost demand for all material types.

This report covers residential insulation demand by material and product form (batts and blankets, rigid board, loose fill, sprayed-on, blown-in, and all other product forms). Data are given in dollars, pounds, square feet, and square feet of R-1 value.

Residential insulation materials covered in this study include:

Fiberglass

Foamed Plastic

Cellulose

Mineral Wool

Other materials (e.g., reflective insulation, radiant barriers, perlite, vermiculite, and all other)

Additionally, demand is broken out by project type (new and retrofit), housing type (single-family, multifamily, and manufactured housing), area of building (attic and roof, exterior wall, and other), region (Northeast, Midwest, South, and West), and subregion.

Scope of the Report

This report analyzes the size and growth of the US residential insulation market, including key trends in applications and market segmentation. Historical data are provided for 2007, 2012, and 2017 with forecasts for 2022, with year by year historical market volatility also addressed. Data are provided in dollars, pounds, square feet, and square feet of R-1 value. Also included is an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
