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

  • Glass Wool
  • Rock Wool
  • Foamed Plastic
  • Others (including cellulose and aerogel)

The glass wool acoustic insulation market size was over USD 2.9 billion in 2016. The product is one of the most widely used insulation forms owing to its effective acoustic and thermal properties. High tensile strength, exceptional resilience, and lightweight are major properties driving product demand. Glass wool is widely used in places where service temperatures can reach 25 degrees Celsius.

Plastic foam possesses excellent sound-absorbing and vibration-dampening qualities 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 sheets or fiber belts. 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.

Based on the end user, the global acoustic insulation market is segmented as follows:

  • Building and Construction
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Residential Buildings
  • Transportation
  • Automotive
  • Marine
  • Aerospace
  • Industrial

In 2016, the largest application generated more than $5.61 billion in revenue. Rising income levels have fueled the growth of the BRIC middle-class population. With more population being attributed to middle-class income levels, a surge in urbanization has been witnessed in these markets. The residential acoustic insulation market contributes to a 25% reduction in regular sound transfer rates by lowering sound pressures in relation to specific sound receptors and sources.

Transportation applications would observe over 6.7% growth; railways, roads, and airports are major transportation noise sources that commonly affect the development of 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 three segments:

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

APAC, led by China, had an acoustic insulation market size of over USD 2 billion in 2016. China's construction sector revealed a shift from government-financed programs toward privately funded industrial and commercial projects. A rising focus on fire safety and soundproofing in high-rise buildings has fueled product demand.

European and other CIS countries account for 33.6% of the European acoustic insulation market. Residential re-insulation is a significant contributor to the regional industry, as many under-insulated houses are expected to be re-insulated in order to reduce disturbance reception caused by outside noise emissions.

North America, led by the United States, is expected to be worth more than USD 5 billion by 2025. U.S. total nonresidential construction spending increased by approximately 8.8% in 2015. Strong outlooks came from heavy engineering and from the industrial and private commercial sectors.
