The global Insulation products market size is projected to grow from USD 55.1 billion in 2021 to USD 71.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2021 and 2026. The growth of this market is attributed to growing stringent regulations for energy-efficient insulation equipment, increase in number of HVAC applications, technological advances, and growing demand in construction, industrial, and transportation industries in Asia Pacific and North American regions.
The Insulation products market is dominated by large players, such as Covestro AG (Germany), Owens Corning Corp. (US), Rockwool International A/S (Denmark), Saint-Gobain ISOVER (France), Knauf Insulation (US), Huntsman Corporation (US), Armacell International S.A. (Luxembourg), Johns Manville Corporation (US), Kingspan Group (Ireland), Soprema Group (France), Cellofoam International GmbH (Germany), Recticel NV/SA (Belgium), China Jushi Co. Ltd. (China), and Rogers Corporation (US). These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as expansions, new product developments, acquisitions, and agreements, to enhance their market footprint and improve their product portfolios. Expansion of their manufacturing plants and offices, globally, is the key strategy adopted by the major players to cater to the increasing demand for Insulation products.
The pandemic has impacted more than five billion people across the world, till April 2020. More than 100 countries were under complete or partial lockdown which impacted the Insulation products business globally and regionally.
