					Global Insulation Market to 2016
Global insulation consumption is forecast to rise more than five percent annually to
approximately 29 billion square meters of R-1 value in 2016, a substantial acceleration from the
2006-2011 rate. In developing countries, insulation demand is expected to expand at a healthy
pace due to rising building construction and industrial activity as well as growing per capita
incomes that will lead to the adoption of modern building techniques and materials, including
insulation. In most developed countries, insulation sales are expected to rebound after falling in
2008 and 2009 due to housing market collapses in several countries. In addition, governments
will adopt new regulations concerning building insulation in an effort to reduce energy
consumption, further boosting demand.

Building construction to be primary driver of demand

Solid residential building construction expenditure gains will be the primary driver of demand.
In North America alone, insulation sales for residential applications will rise approximately nine
percent annually between 2011 and 2016, primarily due to a recovery of the housing market in
the US. In Western Europe, a rebound in several countries’ housing markets will cause
insulation demand to post moderate gains through 2016, as opposed to the decline of the
2006-2011 period. In many West European countries, government efforts to encourage
insulation use in order to lower energy consumption will also contribute to demand. In
developing countries in the Asia/Pacific region, Africa/Mideast region, and Central and South
America, rural-to-urban migration will stimulate building activity in urban areas, and therefore
insulation demand. In some countries, the adoption of minimum insulation requirements will
also contribute to demand. Demand for insulation in the industrial, HVAC, and OEM markets
will be driven by expanding manufacturing activity, appliance output, and HVAC system
installations.

Asia/Pacific region to be fastest growing market

The fastest growth in insulation demand through 2016 is forecast in the Asia/ Pacific region,
due to advances in building construction activity as well as manufacturing and industrial output.
More than 65 percent of new demand generated between 2011 and 2016 will be attributed to
this region. Several Asia/ Pacific countries are expected to post solid growth, including China,
India, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Foamed plastic insulation to lead value gains

In value terms, worldwide insulation consumption is projected to advance roughly seven
percent per annum through 2016, approaching $60 billion. The fastest growth is expected in
the foamed plastic insulation segment, as these products will be used more frequently in
construction applications because of their high insulation values, allowing them to capture
market share from fiberglass and mineral wool insulation. Foamed plastic insulation is also used
extensively in refrigerator and freezer manufacture, further boosting demand. Demand for
fiberglass insulation will benefit from the rebounding residential construction market in North
America, as the material is widely used in the US and Canada. Other insulation materials, such
as cellulose, will also see strong gains, as environmentally friendly options continue to gain
popularity.
