Frequently Asked Questions about Air Barrier Market

Which industry holds maximum opportunities for the growth of air barrier market?

The growth of the global air barrier industry is highly dependent on the growth of key end-use industries such as building and construction. The building and construction industry has witnessed an upward growth trend over the recent past, and growth prospects are expected to remain strong throughout the forecast period.

How is increasing number of construction projects shaping air barrier adoption?

The construction industry has witnessed stability over the years, regardless of adversities in the market. Investments in private construction are increasing across the globe. While spending on construction is sizeable, material costs have increased significantly. Construction projects in private offices across the country are expected to drive steady demand for construction materials, including air barriers. In the coming years, more than half of all the construction players, both commercial and institutional, will be investing their energy in green buildings, thereby driving demand for air barriers in the market.

How will the market progress, in line with surging need for energy efficiency?

The Department of Energy - U.S (DOE) recognizes enormous potential for improving energy efficiency, safety, and comfort in existing American homes. As per DOE estimates, cooling & heating (space conditioning) account for about 50-60% of the total energy consumption in an average American home. Inadequate insulation resulting in heat gain or loss is a leading cause for energy loss. Adding insulation and sealing air leaks can contribute significantly towards making homes more comfortable and increasing their value. Further, studies show proper air barrier materials and sealing techniques can contribute towards energy saving of 10 - 20%.

Which is the most prominent trend in air barrier market?

In accordance with the trend of sustainability, manufacturers are focusing on the utilization and upgradation of manufacturing techniques to produce environment-friendly air barrier materials. As a result, the market for eco-friendly and natural insulation air barrier is anticipated to remain highly attractive during the forecast period. Moreover, several manufacturers of spray foam insulation have developed environmentally-sensitive, innovative solutions that reduce carbon footprint. Spray foam insulation is produced using non-HCFC gas as the foaming agent.

Gypsum Board Losing Market Share to Spray Foam

Spray foam that holds more than 20% share in the market has been among the preferred air barriers. Plywood and oriented strand board (OSB) collectively account for more than a third of the total sales. Despite being a low-cost air barrier preference, gypsum board will most likely lose its market value share in the following years, which is attributed to its lesser durability and relative incompatibility for curved-surface application. In addition to offering improved structural integrity, spray foam is environmentally sustainable and allows for 50% savings on energy costs in both residential and commercial constructions. Towards the end of forecast period, it will capture over a fourth of market value share.

North America Remains in Frontline

Predominantly driven by the private building sector that holds up to 70% share in the region's construction industry, North America will continue to lead the pack in global air barrier market over 2019 - 2029. While residential sector will continue to spearhead, the expanse of commercial sector will also contribute heavily to the demand for air barrier sales. Industrial and commercial facilities will collectively account for more than 45% demand in this region projected by 2029 end. On the other side, the market is set for spectacular growth in South Asia-East Asia-Oceania cluster.

Increasing Role of Building Code and Regulations

The consistently growing need for energy and operational efficiency is moulding the adoption pattern of air barriers on a global level. Environmental policymakers are enforcing stringent regulatory framework and building codes to meet sustainability demands. Increasing stringency of these codes and regulations will pose a positive impact on the long-term growth of air barrier market. The latest International Energy Conservation Code (IECG 2015) compels up to 30% increase in insulation investments, which indicates a massive opportunity for air barrier manufacturers in the near future.

OSB and plywood account for over 1/3rd of total sales

Preference for spray foam increasing at rapid rate

 

Membranes account for more than 40% of total demand

Demand for coatings to soar at promising rate

 

Corrosion resistance top application

Application in insulation to rise steadily

 

Demand from commercial and industrial sectors prominent

Use in military buildings & bunkers to grow significantly

 

How Growth will Unfold

Residential, commercial, and industrial will be the key end use areas of air barriers during the projection period. However, market growth will be more prominent within residential sector that currently accounts for nearly 1/3rd of total demand. Commercial and industrial facilities also hold more than 45% share, collectively, in the global air barrier market. Besides more opportunities emerging in commercial sector, some non-traditional end-use areas such as car parks and basements, and military buildings and bunkers will exhibit considerably high opportunistic potential for market growth in the following years.
