Global Building Insulation Materials Market Is Expected To Reach USD 30.61 Billion By 2024
Monday, 16 Sep, 2019
Building insulation materials are the building materials which form the thermal envelope of a building or otherwise reduce heat transfer. Insulation may be categorized by its composition (natural or synthetic materials), form (batts, blankets, loose-fill, spray foam, and panels), structural contribution (insulating concrete forms, structured panels, and straw bales), functional mode (conductive, radiative, and convective), resistance to heat transfer, environmental impacts, and more. Sometimes a thermally reflective surface called a radiant barrier is added to a material to reduce the transfer of heat through radiation as well as conduction.
The global building insulation materials market is expected to reach USD 30.61 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of more than 5.62% from 22.05 billion in 2018; the actual sales is about 3133.57 million square meters in 2018.
