  • Stone wool will be the fastest-growing insulation type, with a CAGR through 2022 of 6.5%, although plastic wool will lead by size, with an estimated 2022 value of $5.2 billion.

“Rising consumer affluence among middle-class populations in various nations has driven a surge in sustainable building structures,” said BCC Research analyst and report author Aneesh Kumar. “Industries, gyms and workout centers, shipbuilding segments, control rooms, and cabinets all hold potential opportunities for growth of the insulation industry. The availability of economical raw materials and government initiatives in a region are expected to drive the demand for acoustic insulation globally.” 

Government Initiatives Playing a Role in Industry Growth

Government regulations and goals aimed at controlling noise pollution are also helping to drive the global market for acoustic insultation. In the U.S., noise pollution abatement laws are setting emission standards for virtually every source of noise, including motor vehicle, aircraft and types of HVAC equipment. In Germany, a 2005 law protects people against noise from commercial activities, while there are also strict laws in the U.K., Italy, Japan, China and India.
