This report examines the UK and Irish market for thermal insulation products and their different uses in building and in industry, as well as identifying key trends impacting the industry.
It builds up from previous data held in-house by the analyst. All data has been reviewed and updated for this edition.
Scope of Study
The study set on the European Market for Thermal Insulation Products comprises of ‘Country’ and ‘Market’ volumes.
This is a Country Volume.
Country volumes focus on identifying the demand for common thermal insulation materials used in a given country/region.
Market volumes focus on identifying the demand for a single given insulation material in Europe in a country-by-country analysis.
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 2018, 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.
