The European Market for Thermal Insulation Products - Polyurethane Foam

The European Market for Thermal Insulation Products - Polyurethane Foam

IAL Consultants is pleased to announce the publication of the new edition of its study on the markets for Thermal Insulation Products in Europe.

Built upon IAL’s expertise in the global thermal insulation markets, the study details demand for 2016 and provides anticipated market figures for 2021. Forecast years are presented and market rankings (or market shares where available) of Europe’s leading insulation companies are indicated, by both country and product type. Market influences and trends are outlined.

The report covers 24 countries (including all major European thermal insulation markets) split into 14 individual country volumes covering all of the most commonly used insulation materials. An additional 4 volumes focus on a specific insulation material individually (mineral fibre, EPS, XPS & PU/PIR) and present data for the regions of Western and Eastern Europe, and then for the same 24 countries.

Buyers of the full study will receive IAL’s specially compiled Executive Summary Volume free of charge.

Market data is given in cubic metres, tonnes and euros. The following market breakdown is provided:

End-use Sectors Covered:

  • Building
  • Domestic and Commercial Building
  • Cold Stores
  • Agricultural Storage
  • Industry
  • Pipe Lagging
  • Domestic Appliances
  • Transport
  • Process Plant
The contents of the report are based on a thorough investigation of the European markets, which includes extensive primary research across these throughout the first half of 2017, and an examination of relevant secondary sources and statistics.
