Commercial Insulation

US demand for commercial insulation products is projected to increase 3.0% per year to $3.1 billion in 2022. Increasingly stringent building codes and healthy growth in commercial building construction activity will boost demand for all insulation materials.

This report covers commercial insulation product demand by material, building type, project type, and region, along with a discussion of key producers and their respective market shares. Data are given in dollars, pounds, square feet, and square feet of R-1 value.

Commercial insulation materials covered in the study include:
Foamed Plastic
Fiberglass
Mineral Wool
Cellulose
Other Materials (e.g., reflective insulation, radiant barriers, perlite, and vermiculite)

Building types analyzed are:
Office
Retail & Lodging
Institutional
Industrial
Other Commercial Buildings

Project types discussed are both new construction and retrofit.
The study also breaks out demand by US Census regions and subregions:
Northeast (New England and Middle Atlantic)
Midwest (East North Central and West North Central)
South (South Atlantic, East South Central, and West South Central)
West (Mountain and Pacific)
