World Insulation

As Quoted In KunststoffWeb

Global insulation consumption is projected to grow 3.8 percent annually through 2012. The fastest growth will occur in developing Asian countries based on strong building construction activity and increasing production of insulated products. Foamed plastic will remain the largest segment while fiberglass gains market share.

This study analyzes the $29.2 billion world insulation industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by material (e.g., foamed plastics, fiberglass, mineral wool), market (construction; industrial, HVAC and OEM), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, North America, Western Europe) and for 46 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including Saint-Gobain, Rockwool International and Owens Corning.
