In terms of value, the mineral wool market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0 percent over the following five years, reaching $12.0 billion in 2019. Mineral wool has acquired popularity as a result of its advantageous qualities, such as its capacity to provide thermal and acoustic insulation in both residential and commercial structures, as well as in industrial settings. As a result, these fibres successfully satisfy the needs for thermal and acoustic insulation in a variety of applications. The market and its trends in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World are all covered in this study (RoW).
The market for mineral wool is examined in terms of kinds, end products, and applications. Glass Wool and Stone Wool are the two most common forms of mineral wool. Blanket, Board, Panel, customised shape, and other mineral wool end products are available. Fire protection, thermal, acoustics, and other end-use applications are all included. Mineral wool is mostly consumed by the building and construction industry, a trend that is expected to continue in the future.
With expanding economies like China and India, as well as growing building and industrial operations, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for mineral wool. Global players have a significant chance to build up manufacturing facilities in the Asia-Pacific area, particularly in developing countries like China and India, due to lower production costs.
Asia-Pacific will continue to lead the market through 2019, with developed economies like North America and Europe trailing behind. Saint-Gobain (France), Rockwool International (Denmark), Knauf Insulation (Netherlands), Industrial Insulation Group, LLC. (US), CertainTeed Corp. (US), Guardian Fiberglass, Inc. (US), Johns Manville (US), Owens Corning (US), Roxul Inc. (Canada), Rock Wool Manufacturing Co. (US), Thermafiber, Inc. (US) and USG Interiors, Inc. (US) are among the global and regional players (U.S.).
Industrial heating applications are expected to drive the industry away from panel form.
By 2027, the global mineral wool material market in panel form is estimated to reach USD 3.5 billion. For industrial heating applications, such as high-temperature panel systems for boilers, precipitators, and ducts, H-Bar systems, containers, and industrial ovens, insulating materials in panel form are employed. Metal mesh blankets, hot precipitators, boiler walls, hot ducting, cylindrical tanks, prefabricated panel systems, towers, and stacks are all good candidates for it.
Favorable policies for supporting manufacturing hubs in the United States, China, India, and the United Kingdom will affect global market growth for the panel segment. Due to poor economic activity, the industrial segment’s expansion has been subdued. However, due to favourable growth possibilities such as duty rationalisation for raw materials and tax incentives for R&D investments, prominent industry players participating in the market will witness an increase in their commercial operations.
