The global house wrap market comprises of different market segment like type, product type, technique and geography.


By type, the house wraps include key segment of 

  • Asphalt Felt
  • Polyolefin Fabric
  • Liquid Water-Resistive Barrier
  • Low Defect Metallizer
  • Rigid Foam
  • Water-Resistive Barrier Sheathing
  • Grade D building paper

Asphalt felt are WRBs that serve as the second line of protection against moisture and air entering a home or building. This type of paper is thicker and it has a lifespan of approximately 15 years. The thickness of the product makes it more resistant to tearing when battered by heavy winds. Asphalt felt can shed water and it provides additional water protection, which is one reason it is an important part of a house wrap. Asphalt felt is designed as an underlayment product to be applied over the roof deck prior to the installation of asphalt shingles. A benefit of asphalt felt is its ability to absorb water, and then slowly evaporate the moisture from the exterior.


By product type, the house wraps include key segment of 

  • Non-perforated House wraps
  • Perforated House wraps

Perforated house wraps have a high market share as they cost much less than non-perforated house wraps. Perforated house wraps poke thousands of tiny holes through their materials. These micro perforations allow some vapor movement.  Perforated house wraps can withstand the rigors of construction, but the perforations that allow vapor movement also permit air and water to move through the house wrap. However, several builders prefer low-cost options and do not prioritize the performance and quality of house wraps. Thus, perforated house wraps have been prominent in the global house wrap market.


By technique, the house wraps include key segment of 

  • Wrapping
  • Tapping
  • Flashing

House wraps are installed on the outside surface of a home’s envelope or exterior. The wrapping segment accounted for the largest share in the house wrap market. Wrapping technique is used to cover and protect. House wraps help to minimize wind and air leaks that create hot or cold zones in living areas. Wrapping starts from the foundation, or the base of the wall assembly, extending at least an inch past the wall-to-foundation and continuing upwards like shingle installation.
