World Insulation Market

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

World Insulation Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01028855/World-Insulation-Market.html#utm_s...

Demand to rise more than 5% annually through 2016

Global insulation consumption is forecast to rise more than five percent annually to approximately 29 billion square meters of R-1 value in 2016, a substantial acceleration from the 2006-2011 rate. In developing countries, insulation demand is expected to expand at a healthy pace due to rising building construction and industrial activity as well as growing per capita incomes that will lead to the adoption of modern building techniques and materials, including insulation. In most developed countries, insulation sales are expected to rebound after falling in 2008 and 2009 due to housing market collapses in several countries. In addition, governments will adopt new regulations concerning building insulation in an effort to reduce energy consumption, further boosting demand.

Building construction to be primary driver of demand

Solid residential building construction expenditure gains will be the primary driver of demand. In North America alone, insulation sales for residential applications will rise approximately nine percent annually between 2011 and 2016, primarily due to a recovery of the housing market in the US. In Western Europe, a rebound in several countries' housing markets will cause insulation demand to post moderate gains through 2016, as opposed to the decline of the 2006-2011 period. In many West European countries, government efforts to encourage insulation use in order to lower energy consumption will also contribute to demand. In developing countries in the Asia/Pacific region, Africa/Mideast region, and Central and South America, rural-to-urban migration will stimulate building activity in urban areas, and therefore insulation demand. In some countries, the adoption of minimum insulation requirements will also contribute to demand. Demand for insulation in the industrial, HVAC, and OEM markets will be driven by expanding manufacturing activity, appliance output, and HVAC system installations.

Asia/Pacific region to be fastest growing market

The fastest growth in insulation demand through 2016 is forecast in the Asia/ Pacific region, due to advances in building construction activity as well as manufacturing and industrial output. More than 65 percent of new demand generated between 2011 and 2016 will be attributed to this region. Several Asia/ Pacific countries are expected to post solid growth, including China, India, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Foamed plastic insulation to lead value gains

In value terms, worldwide insulation consumption is projected to advance roughly seven percent per annum through 2016, approaching $60 billion. The fastest growth is expected in the foamed plastic insulation segment, as these products will be used more frequently in construction applications because of their high insulation values, allowing them to capture market share from fiberglass and mineral wool insulation. Foamed plastic insulation is also used extensively in refrigerator and freezer manufacture, further boosting demand. Demand for fiberglass insulation will benefit from the rebounding residential construction market in North America, as the material is widely used in the US and Canada. Other insulation materials, such as cellulose, will also see strong gains, as environmentally friendly options continue to gain popularity.

Study coverage

This upcoming industry study presents historical demand data (2001, 2006, 2011) and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material, world region and for 37 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share, and profiles industry competitors.
