Insulation

US insulation demand will rise 5.3 percent annually through 2012, based on renewed growth in housing construction. Fiberglass will remain the leading insulation material and outpace demand for the second largest type, foamed plastic. Reflective insulation and radiant barriers will see the fastest growth, albeit from a small base.

This study analyzes the $8.5 billion US insulation industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by insulation type (e.g., fiberglass, foamed plastics, cellulose, mineral wool, reflective insulation and radiant barriers), market (e.g., residential construction, nonresidential construction, industrial and HVAC equipment); and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry composition, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 major players, including Owens Corning, Johns Manville, CertainTeed, Dow Chemical, Knauf, Guardian Industries, and Atlas Roofing.
