Acoustic Insulation Market by Type (Mineral Wool, Glass Wool, Foamed Plastics), by Application (Building & Construction, Industrial, Transportation) - Global Trends and Forecasts to 2019
Acoustic insulation materials have found wide acceptance in various industries such as building & construction, transportation, and others because of their superior acoustic and environmental resistance characteristics. On the basis of application areas, the market of acoustic insulation can be broadly segmented into building & construction, transportation, and industrial. Though building & construction is the major end-use industry of acoustic insulation materials; transportation application is an emerging market, which is driving the demand for the acoustic insulation materials at a high pace.
The European region is the biggest market of acoustic insulation, accounting for 37.88% of the total global acoustic insulation material consumption by value in 2013. There is a lot of scope in the Asia-pacific market due to increasing manufacturing base in the region. Building & construction, and transportation industry of Asia-pacific is increasing at a sharp pace, increasing the demand for acoustic insulation materials in the regions. With the growing middle classes, their demand for comforts are increasing day by day, ultimately enhancing the demand for acoustic insulation in end-use industries.
Currently, the penetration of acoustic insulation materials is increasing in building & construction, and transportation industry. The key drivers for increasing demand of acoustic insulation materials are rising health concerns among the people, rise in demand of energy efficient buildings, and strict regulatory environment. Rising demand from developing nations is further pushing the market of acoustic insulation materials in different acoustic insulation applications. Merger & acquisitions, technological developments & innovations and expansion are identified as key strategies to expand the acoustic insulation market.
