    Market Insights

    The Acoustic Insulation Market is likely to rebound at a significant CAGR of 5% to reach a value of US$ 13.9 Billion by 2026.

    About Acoustic Insulation

    The trend of green buildings has led to the dynamics in the material mix of building envelopes and designs. The designing scheme of green buildings increasingly considers insulation (including acoustic insulation) to be one of the crucial elements for both new constructions as well as renovation projects. The transfer of airborne and structural noises between different rooms in a building can be efficiently prevented by integrating acoustic insulation materials. Moreover, the strict government laws and regulations regarding sound insulation requirements, such as US EPA Noise Control Act, are providing an opportunity for acoustic material manufacturers to expand their businesses. Furthermore, the trend towards quieter automobile interiors is further substantiating the demand for acoustic insulations.

    Segment Analysis

    Material Type

    The market is segmented as fiberglass, mineral wool, plastic foam, and elastomeric foam. Mineral wool is dominant in the market driven by its versatility in providing excellent thermal insulation, acoustic padding, fire resistance, and being simple to install. Furthermore, the lower cost of mineral wool over competing insulation materials, such as fiberglass and plastic foams, is fuelling its demand, especially in emerging cost-sensitive economies.

    End-User Type

    The market is segmented as building & construction, transportation, and industrial. Building & construction is estimated to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. The segment’s growth will be driven by changing trends toward eco-friendly buildings that provide efficient acoustic and thermal insulation for residential, commercial, and industrial uses. The growing need for superior insulation materials meeting modern building regulations with efficient sound absorption and dampening, dimensional stability, and ecological compatibility, are among the primary elements driving the segment’s demand.

    Regional Analysis

    Europe is expected to remain the largest region of acoustic insulation during the forecast period. Rising awareness of green construction and smart infrastructure is predicted to boost the product demand in the region in the years to come. Growing awareness among descriptors defined in ISO standards and guidelines set by governing bodies, such as Noise Policy Vision set by DEFRA, is attributed to driving the acoustic insulation penetration in the region’s market.

    Asia-Pacific holds a niche share but represents a huge white-space growth opportunity in the years to come. The strong construction industry and infrastructure outlook of key countries in the region may create new revenue pockets for industry stakeholders in the near term. Emerging Asian economies, such as China and India, are likely to substantiate the market growth with the gradual adoption of stricter building codes, leading to an increase in the penetration of insulation materials in the region.

    COVID-19 Impact

    The global acoustic insulation market has been witnessing decent growth over the past decade; however, the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 has brought a considerable downswing in the market due to a shrinking economy, a significant reduction in infrastructure spending, a hefty decline in vehicle production, and postponement of construction activities. However, the gradual opening of economies, regain in consumer confidence, the resilient outlook of the construction industry, and expected recovery in vehicles production are key factors that are likely to translate an impressive bounce-back in the demand for acoustic insulations from 2021 onwards.
