US insulation demand will rise 6.6 percent annually through 2019 to $10.3 billion. The residential market will grow the fastest, while the nonresidential market will recover from recent declines. Fiberglass and foamed plastic insulation will continue to claim the vast majority of the market, with foamed plastic growing slightly faster than fiberglass.

This study analyzes the $7.5 billion US insulation industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by product (e.g., fiberglass, foamed plastics, cellulose, mineral wool, reflective insulation and radiant barriers), market (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 36 industry participants, including Owens Corning, Johns Manville, and CertainTeed.
