  • Mineral wool insulation used in the construction, industrial equipment and appliance industries
  • Plastic foam insulation used in construction

Growth in the construction and remodeling industries, combined with concerns over rising energy costs and noise pollution, are fueling market demand for thermal insulation. Uses of thermal insulation are wide and varied, creating many opportunities for manufacturers to find potential business. This report examines the shipment data, market factors, competitors and end users that will contribute to shipments in this market reaching $10.7 billion by 2010.

Scope and Methodology
Report data were obtained from government sources, trade associations and publications, business journals, company literature, and investment reports.

For mineral wool and plastic foam insulation, the shipment value has been used to indicate the market supply. Shipment statistics are derived from the U.S. Census of Manufacturers and the Annual Survey of Manufacturers, and are estimated and forecasted by SBI. Historical data are provided for 2001 through 2005 (all 2005 shipments are estimates), with forecast data from 2006 to 2010.

Note that the values are in net selling values, i.e., free on board (f.o.b.) from the manufacturing plant, and not the retail/wholesale price sold to the end consumer.
