Consumption of insulation materials in China will grow 8.2 percent annually through 2013, driven by rising building construction spending and manufacturing activity. Foamed plastic will remain the dominant product segment and post the fastest growth. Nonresidential building construction will be the fastest growing market.
This study analyzes the 24 billion yuan Chinese insulation industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, with forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., foamed plastics, mineral wool, fiberglass), market (e.g., residential construction, nonresidential construction, industrial and HVAC equipment) and geographic region (e.g., Central-East, Central-South, Central-North).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry participants, including Owens Corning, Saint-Gobain and BNBM.
