The global acoustic insulation industry is facing a number of challenges as it deals with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. How has the macroeconomic environment changed and what does it mean for the global acoustic insulation industry going forward?

Acoustic Insulation

COVID-19 Economic Impact Report: Global Acoustic Insulation looks at how the expected impact of the pandemic on the current macroeconomic environment compares to other major events since 2000, including the bursting of technology bubble, the SARS outbreak, the 2009 global downturn, and the European financial crisis. It also provides a historical view of global industry sales since 2000, a look at how the industry is being currently impacted, and estimates for global industry sales through 2023.

Materials considered include:

  • foamed plastic
  • fiberglass
  • mineral wool
  • other materials (e.g., cellulose, cotton, perlite, vermiculite, aerogel, calcium silicate, and all other acoustic insulation materials)

The major market segments analyzed are:

  • residential buildings
  • nonresidential buildings
  • industrial and plant equipment
  • HVAC/air distribution equipment
  • transportation equipment
  • other insulation markets (e.g., appliances nonbuilding/infrastructure construction, and heavy mobile machinery)

Thermal insulation is excluded from the scope of this study.
