Building thermal insulation is an object in a building used as insulation for any purpose. While most of the insulation in buildings is for thermal purposes, it is also applying to acoustic insulation, fire insulation, and impact insulation. Thermal insulation in buildings is an important factor to achieving thermal comfort for its occupants. Moreover, thermal insulation reduces unwanted heat loss or gain and can decrease the energy demands of heating and cooling systems. Building thermal insulation contains many tiny air cavities, slows heat transmission when installed on a building’s interior or exterior surface, or in building cavities. Each type of insulation material receives an R-value rating, which is a measure of its thermal resistance. A higher R-value indicates a better insulator.

Building Thermal Insulation Market Outlook

The building thermal insulation market has a developing potential owing to rising focus on energy conservation as thermally insulated homes and buildings are less affected by external environmental temperature. Moreover, increasing government efforts to promote energy efficiency and sustainable development are expected to fuel the growth of this market in coming years. However, the market is hampered by fluctuating prices of raw material and lack of awareness among the people.

Building Thermal Insulation Market Segmental Overview

The report analysis the building thermal insulation market based on material type, application, type of construction and geography. 

Building Thermal Insulation Market by Material Type 

Based on material type the global building thermal insulation market is segmented into, plastic foam, glass wool, stone wool and others which includes, aerogel, cellulose etc. The plastic foam is divided into polystyrene foam, polyurethane (PUR) & polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam and others including phenolic foam, elastomeric foam etc. Polystyrene foam is further bifurcated into, expanded and extruded polystyrene. Among these materials, the plastic foam segment accounted for the highest market share in 2017, owing to its properties such as high thermal resistance, high R value and density is low, and so the weight reduction compared to other options is significant. Moreover, this product type is anticipated to grow at a lucrative growth rate during the forecasted period. 




Building Thermal Insulation Market by Application 

Based on application, the market is segmented into, roof, wall and floor. In 2017, the wall segment dominated the market and is anticipated to maintain its market hold over the forecast period. The rising demand for energy efficient buildings and maximum loss of energy through walls in a building is expected to contribute to the segment growth. 

Building Thermal Insulation Market by Type of Construction 

By type of construction, the global building thermal insulation market is segmented into residential and non-residential building. the non-residential buildings are further segmented into, commercial building and others.  Residential building sector dominates the market and is expected to experience higher growth prospects during the forecast period. High growth and investments in single-unit houses, as well as in commercial buildings such as office buildings, hospitals, hotels, and lodging, is expected to boost the demand for thermal insulation material. 

Building Thermal Insulation Market by Geography 

By geography, the global building thermal insulation market is studied across the countries of key regions such as, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America. Europe is accounted for the largest share in 2017, followed by North America and Asia-Pacific. The Europe market for building thermal insulation makes an important contribution to the growth of the global market. This growth is attributed to growing consumer disposable income and increasing awareness regarding building thermal insulation.
