  • Forecast CAGR (2021-26): 4.22%
  • Forecast Market Size (2026): USD 2 Billion
The weather barrier industry includes a significant section called air barrier. The air barrier protects the building's critical components, such as the walls, roofs, and foundation, from corrosion and chemical damage. As a result, it guarantees the buildings' upkeep and extends their lives. Air barrier materials provide an airtight barrier in a wide range of temperatures while also ensuring the structure's long-term durability. Moisture movement, airflow, heat flow, and other radiations that come into contact with the building are all regulated and managed by air barriers. Moisture is carried by airflow, which has an effect on a material's long-term performance and structural integrity.

Industry Definition and Major Segments

Since air leakage results in a large amount of moisture being transmitted through diffusion, as opposed to vapour diffusion, an air barrier is critical in waterproofing.

The following are the different membrane types available on the market:
  • Sheet Applied
  • Fluid Applied
The sheet-applied air barrier is a self-adhesive membrane that controls air leakage and moisture transmission in walls. The fluid-applied air barriers are available in synthetic rubber and vapor permeable formulations.

Based on application, the air barrier industry can be segmented into:
  • Masonry
  • Gypsum Board
  • Glass
  • Plywood
  • Others
The industry finds diverse end-uses into:
  • Residential
  • Commercial
  • Public Infrastructure
The report also covers regional markets of North America air barrier market such as the United States and Canada. The market in the United States can be further divided into New England, Mideast, Great Lakes, Plains, Southeast, Southwest, Rocky Mountain, and Far West regions, while the Canadian market can be additionally segmented into Northern Canada, British Columbia, Alberta, the Prairies, Central Canada, and Atlantic Canada regions.

Market Trend

The growing demand for air barriers in North America is being driven by the construction and infrastructure industries. Because of increasing disposable income and rapid urbanisation, countries like the United States and Canada lead the North American region. Owners and building codes are driving up demand for energy-efficient buildings, which is driving up demand for air barriers. The air barrier prevents heat from entering the building from the outside or the inside, lowering heating and cooling costs and increasing convenience for the property owner. As a result, air barriers have green building certification, further improving the industry growth.
