Research and Markets: International and United States Insulation Market Report - Forecasts to 2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/89p3lt/global_and_u_s) has announced the addition of the "International and United States Insulation Market Report - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The global market for insulation was valued at USD 30.09 billion in 2010 which increased to USD 32.46 billion in 2011, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2012 to 2018. The demand for insulation is expected to be driven by the growth of the construction industry in developing countries of Asia Pacific and the growth of the re-insulation market in developed economies of the U.S. and Europe.

Growing awareness and realization of depleting natural resources, and the critical need to conserve energy, has resulted in increasing demand for insulation in homes and offices. Advancements in technology and enhanced industrial production techniques are also expected to create demand for insulation in factories and commercial spaces. However, volatile raw material prices and environmental concerns regarding the use of insulation act as major deterrents to this market, and the foamed plastic insulation industry in particular is exposed to these challenges.

New environment friendly alternatives, such as cotton wool insulation and aerogel insulation have been conceptualized and are in the process of gradual commercialization.

Insulation refers to a process wherein a non-conducting material is used to isolate something from its surrounding atmosphere, and sustain its normal state of being. Insulation can be of several types, such as thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, and electrical insulation. Good insulators consist of atoms packed in a manner that does not permit them to vibrate to the extent required to successfully transfer the amount of heat, electrical or sound energy applied to them.
