Acoustic Insulation Market

Construction was the largest application and generated over US$ 5.61 Bn business in 2016. Rising income levels have driven the middle-class population growth in BRIC nations. With more population being attributed to middle-class income levels, a surge in urbanization has been witnessed in these markets. Residential acoustic insulation market helps in curbing around 25% of the regular sound transfer rates through the reduction in sound pressures with respect to specified sound receptors and source.

Transportation applications would observe over 6.7% growth, railways, roads, and airports are major transportation noise sources which commonly effects development land for schools, houses, and hospitals. Increased developments in the automotive industry for soundproofing should drive product demand.

For the purpose of this study, the global acoustic insulation market is categorized into:

  • North America (US, Canada)
  • Europe (U.K., Germany, Rest of Europe)
  • Asia Pacific (China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Rest of Asia Pacific)
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Acoustic Insulation Market

APAC, led by China acoustic insulation market size was valued at over USD 2 billion in 2016. China construction sector revealed a shift from government financed programmed towards privately funded industrial and commercial projects. Rising focus on fire safety and sound proofing in high-rise buildings has fueled product demand.

 European and other CIS countries account for 33.6% which integrates to the overall Europe acoustic insulation market share. Residential re-insulation is a major contributor to the regional industry as a large number of under-insulated houses are expected to re-insulate in order to reduce disturbance reception created from the outside noise emissions.

 North America, driven by U.S. is foreseen to be worth over USD 5 billion by 2025. U.S. total non-residential construction spending increased by approximately 8.8% in 2015. Strong outlook came from heavy engineering and from the industrial and private commercial sectors.

Based on the Material type, the global acoustic insulation market is segmented as follows:

  • Glass Wool
  • Rock Wool
  • Foamed Plastic
  • Others (Cellulose & Aerogel)

Acoustic Insulation Market

Glass wool acoustic insulation market size was over USD 2.9 billion in 2016, the product is one of the most widely used insulations forms owing to its effective acoustic and thermal properties, high tensile strength, exceptional resilience, and light weight are major properties driving product demand. Glass wool is majorly preferred in places with service temperatures ranging up to 25oC.

Plastic foam possesses excellent sound absorbing and vibration dampening quality that contribute to higher comfort and safety levels. Acoustic insulation from these materials can reduce noise by around 50% in comparison to traditional materials such as bitumen sheet or fiber belt. Stone wool is estimated to be the fastest growing material type due to its higher efficiency, excellent thermal insulation, easy installation, and super fire resistance.
