Global Insulation Market to Reach US$ 69.36 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Enhanced Focus on Sustainable Development

Published on Jan 21, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled " Insulation Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global insulation market reached a value of US$ 50.3 Billion in 2021. Insulation refers to the process of blocking the transmission of sound, heat and electricity in a physical space. This involves the utilization of insulating materials that help in reducing heat gain or loss by acting as a barrier for energy flow. Therefore, various consumer appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, are extensively equipped with insulators. Along with this, these materials are also used in the manufacturing of roll pans, bumpers and wiper cowls of vehicles since their utilization aids in power-saving while minimizing noise pollution.  

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Insulation Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of insulation materials across the construction industry. This is supported by rising investments in infrastructural development projects across the globe. In line with this, the widespread adoption of insulating materials for soundproofing across offices, hospital settings and financial institutions is providing a boost to the market growth. Moreover, the increasing utilization of duct wrap insulation material in residential buildings to offer an aesthetic appearance to the space while acting as an insulator is also creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by an enhanced focus on sustainable development, due to which leading players are heavily investing in the manufacturing of insulation materials using recycled materials, including rockwool and cellulose.
