Structural Insulated Panels Market - Segmented by Product, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 — 2023)
The global structural insulated panel market is estimated to reach USD 523.60 million by revenue, by 2023, at an estimated CAGR of 6.13% over the forecast period of 2018-2023. The major factors driving the market studied are the increasing demand from the construction sector and increasing cold storage applications. Advancements in building technologies such as modular construction techniques are expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.
Growing Demand from the Construction Sector
One of the main drivers for the structural insulation panel market is the increasing demand from the construction sector. The rise in building and construction activities are the prominent factors augmenting the demand for Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). Among the various nonconventional insulations being introduced to the construction industry as the next-generation thermal insulation, SIPs appear to be one of the most promising insulation materials with the significant thermal insulating capacity. Moreover, owing to its various advantages, SIPs are widely employed in specialty construction industry. These include that they can be used in various applications, including internal and external walls, roofs, flooring surfaces, and SIPs can be easily combined with other construction materials such as blocks, stones, bricks, wood, tiles, steel, and glass. Furthermore, increasing construction spending and expenditure is expected to drive the structural insulation panel market during the forecast period.
Building Wall to Witness Fastest Growth
Structural insulated wall panels are generally available in thicknesses of 4-1/2 inches and 6-1/2 inches. Manufacturing of curved wall panels are possible and it is often more practical to use stud framing for non-orthogonal geometries. The whole wall R-value of a wall assembly is currently the best and the most followed method of quantifying the total thermal performance. The whole wall R-value of a 4-inch structural insulated wall panel is 14, whereas for a 2x4 wall is less than 10. The whole wall R-value of a 2x6 wall is between 11 and 13.7 depending on the quality of the installation of batt insulation. The elimination of thermal bridging and a more airtight envelope contributes to the higher whole wall R-value of structural insulated wall panels, compared to the conventional metal and wood stud walls. The total volume of the panels used as structural insulated wall panels is much higher, compared to the volume of the panels used as structural insulated roof panels.
North America to Dominate the Market
North America region dominated the global market share in 2017. The construction industry in the United States has not been the same in 2017 as it was in the past three years. An increase has been observed in the private construction spending over the years. The residential and non-residential construction in 2017 has increased significantly compared to the previous years and is likely to grow in 2018. The residential construction in 2016 and 2017 has increased year-on-year by 10.52% and 10.58% respectively. The non-residential construction has also increased by 7.71% from 2015 to 2016. In addition, a growth is also being witnessed in the housing repair and refurbishment activities. The Harvard Joint Center For Housing Studies estimates that the remodeling expenditures for housing in the United States will reach almost USD 340 billion in 2018, exhibiting a growth of 7.5% over 2017. Furthermore, the Canadian government is planning to invest in public & renewable energy infrastructure through Affordable Housing Initiative (AHI), Made in Canada, and New Building Canada Plan (NBCP), among others, which is expected to support the country’s growth in near future. All the aforementioned factors, in turn, boost the demand for structural insulated panels in the North American region during the forecast period.
