World Insulation

As Quoted In Plastics News

Global demand for insulation is forecast to increase 6.3 percent annually in value terms. Insulation consumption in most developing countries will continue to expand at a healthy pace, while sales of insulation materials in developed countries will rebound after falling sharply in 2008 and 2009.

This study analyzes the $31.3 billion global insulation industry. It presents historical demand data and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material (e.g., foamed plastics, fiberglass, mineral wool), market (construction, HVAC and OEM), world region and for 35 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Saint-Gobain, Rockwool and Owens Corning.
