DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "North America Building Thermal Insulation Market Analysis By Product (Glass Wool, Mineral Wool, EPS, XPS), By Application (Roof, Wall, Floor), By End-use (Residential, Non-residential), Competitive Landscape And Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report to their offering.
The North America building thermal insulation market is slated to reach USD 10.75 billion by 2025, according to this new report. Favorable regulations focusing on lowering the overall energy consumption is likely to be an important factor for rising popularity of these materials. Thermal insulation materials assistin reducing the heat buildup within the buildings, thus cutting down the dependence on air conditioning.
The blowing agents employed in the insulation industry contain ozone depleting substances and are a serious environmental concern. These blowing agents which are employed in various insulation materials such as PU foams, phenolic foam, EPS, and XPS contain hydro fluorocarbons (HFC), carbon dioxide, and pentane which are considered as major greenhouse gasses.
Fiberglass observes the highest penetration and benefits from the early introduction of the product in North American market. The product has witnessed wide popularity owing to the low fire hazards. Fiberglass can be installed easily with the help of DIY tools, and that has helped the market penetration.Extruded polystyrene (EPS) is a popular product in the Europe and is now gaining good attention in North America as well.EPS is expected to be the fastest growing product segment.
Being a mature market the industry has witnessed slow but stable growth in most of the application segments. Insulation materials have been in demand in this region for a long time, and hence the market is highly price sensitive. New constructions and implementation of energy efficiency codes is likely to result in high industry rivalry.
Key market players include Dow Building Solutions, Owens Corning Corp.,Johns Manville Corporation, Huntsman International LLC, CertainTeed Corporation, etc.
