Global Industrial & OEM Insulation

This report forecasts to 2023 global demand for industrial and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) insulation by material, market, and major world region in metric tons. Material segments include: foamed plastic; fiberglass; mineral wool; and other materials such as radiant barriers, vacuum panels, and vermiculite. Reported markets encompass: industrial and plant equipment; commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and air distribution equipment; major household appliances; transportation equipment; and other markets such as insulated packaging, heavy off-road equipment, and nonbuilding/infrastructure construction. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, material, market, and regional demand (including material and market segments) are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

The metric measures of thermal value used in this report cannot be converted to English units (those used in The Freedonia Group's US insulation reports) simply by converting square meters to square feet. The metric version of thermal value defines heat transfer in metric units (watts) and is based on a material sample one meter thick; the English version of thermal value defines heat transfer in British thermal units and is based on a material sample 1 inch thick.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
