Insulation

As Quoted In ICIS

US demand for insulation materials will rise 7.4 percent annually through 2014, driven by a recovery in residential construction. Fiberglass insulation will offer the best growth opportunities and will surpass foamed plastic as the largest segment in value terms by 2014. Cellulose insulation will post the fastest growth from a small base.

This study analyzes the $7.1 billion US insulation industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (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 geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including Owens Corning, Johns Manville and CertainTeed.
