Global Insulation Market (Fiberglass, Plastic Foam, Mineral Wool) Research Report by 2020

Since the introduction of fiberglass in the middle of the 20th century, it has remained the most popular insulation material. These materials are widely used in both commercial and residential construction. In addition to increasing the energy efficiency of buildings, fiberglass is also one of the most preferred types of insulation for soundproofing buildings.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/29/2015 -- Insulation materials are non-conducting materials which are used to isolate something from its surrounding atmosphere and sustain its normal state of being. Insulation can be of several types, viz., thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, and electrical insulation. Good insulators have atoms packed in such a way that they cannot vibrate to the extent required to successfully transfer the amount of heat, electrical, or sound energy applied to it. Insulating materials can be broadly classified into mineral fibers and plastic foams. The quality of the insulator is determined by the R-value it provides. R-value is the degree of thermal resistance of the material; a higher R-value signifies a better insulator. Insulating materials made from fiberglass, mineral wool, and plastic foam are used in the building and construction industry, and in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning applications.
