US demand for insulation is projected to advance 7.6 percent annually to $10.3 billion in 2017. The residential market will see double-digit annual gains based on a strong rebound in housing starts. Fiberglass insulation will remain the market leader and grow the fastest, followed in growth rates by reflective/radiant and cellulose types.

This study analyzes the $7.1 billion US insulation industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., fiberglass, foamed plastics, cellulose, mineral wool, reflective insulation and radiant barriers), market (e.g., residential buildings, nonresidential buildings, industrial and HVAC Equipment) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including Owens Corning, Johns Manville and CertainTeed.
