Vapour Barrier Sales to Grow at 4% CAGR Through 2029, Polymers Remain Preferred Material: FMI Study

Jan 08,2020 | Chemicals & Materials

Sales of vapour barriers are projected to witness steady rise in the following years, prominently propelled by sustained consumption by the building & construction industry. As suggested by a new Future Market Insights (FMI) report, global vapour barrier market will exhibit a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period of 2019-2029.

Water condensation can damage the sturdiest of constructions, which is why vapour barriers hold significant importance, as they offer complete insulation from vapour and moisture to building structures. Use of vapour barriers also allows for optimum efficiency of a space conditioning system, thereby fueling their demand across the construction industry.

Heavy usage of vapour barriers in commercial and residential buildings to prevent moisture damage to infrastructure is anticipated to be the primary growth driver. However, increasing utilization of vapour barriers in the packaging industry to prevent moisture damage and interstitial condensation in packed goods opens new growth avenues for industry players.

Key Takeaways - Vapour Barrier Market Study

  • Over the period of projection, building infrastructure, whether private/public or commercial/residential, will be based on green building concepts to strike a fine balance of environmental sustainability and modern amenities. As a result, the demand for vapour barriers is projected to significantly spur over the forecast period.
  • Polymer materials segment to retain its spot as a prominently preferred material followed by asphalt & bitumen, whereas drywall board lumber and gypsum board projected to observe growth at a swift pace in the market.
  • Membrane type vapour barriers are expected to register a dominating share due to their easy installation. However, the popularity of the coating segment is increasing across the globe in recent years due to its enhanced moisture resistance.
  • To meet stringent manufacturing rules and regulations, manufacturers are trying to increase the use of materials with high recyclability and decent biodegradability index. Also, due to new norms for VOC emissions, many manufacturers are looking to revamp their manufacturing process in order to minimize these emissions.
