Insulation: Canada

This report forecasts to 2022 Canadian insulation demand and production in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by material in terms of: fiberglass; foamed plastic; mineral wool; and other products such as cellulose, perlite, reflective insulation, and vermiculite. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: residential buildings; nonresidential buildings; industrial and plant equipment; HVAC/air distribution equipment; and other markets such as appliances, transportation equipment, bedding, furniture, insulated coolers and thermoses, and packaging.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; production and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

Demand in value terms is shown at the manufacturer level and excludes distributor and retailer markups. Both thermal and acoustic insulation are included in the scope of this study. Re-exports of insulation are excluded from demand figures.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2017.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
