Description

Industry Prospective:

The global extruded polystyrene insulation materials market was worth around USD 5.86 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 7.98 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 4.9 percent over the forecast period. The report analyzes the extruded polystyrene insulation materials market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the extruded polystyrene insulation materials market.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Overview

Extruded polystyrenes are thermoplastic polymers that are produced via extrusion. Owing to their closed cell structure, these polymers are very moisture resistant and have excellent insulating qualities. They also have excellent compressive strength, are simple to install & handle, and provide long-term thermal efficiency. They can be used in rail beds, cold storage installations, transmission line power foundations, walkaways, beneath concrete floors, underground utility lines, parking decks, fountain foundations, as well as other load-bearing purposes on both the inside and outside.

COVID-19 Impact:

COVID-19 had a negative impact on the market growth in 2020. The breakout of COVID-19 caused a lack of funding, labor shortages, and lockdown restrictions which is why many projects were suspended in 2020. Migrant laborers wrecked chaos and ceased working on building projects in numerous industrialized and developing nations, including the United States, China, and India, owing to an interstate travel prohibition. This disrupts the supply chain, resulting in lower building material use and lower demand & supply for extruded polystyrene.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Growth Drivers

The need for green buildings is fueled by the increased impact of constructing buildings on the environment and human health.

Green construction denotes the use of environmentally friendly and resource-efficient methods at every level of the construction process. Green construction is primarily concerned with boosting the building's energy efficiency and reducing waste linked with the use of materials, water, and energy. Extruded insulation materials are an important aspect of green building since they help reduce the structure's energy consumption. This benefits both the environment and the immediate owner by cutting energy expenses and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to this, it is less dangerous to the ozone layer. Extruded polystyrene (XPS) is homogeneous polystyrene that comes in a variety of hues, including green, blue, and pink. XPS starts as a molten substance that is pressed into sheets from a mould. It's most typically used as foam board insulation, and it's also regularly utilized to insulate structural insulating panels and concrete forms (ICFs). HCFCs are largely used in XPS Insulation Materials. CFCs are 90 percent more destructive to the ozone layer than these alternatives. The aforementioned benefits of XPS drive manufacturers to use it over alternative reinforcing materials. All these factors are driving the growth of the global extruded polystyrene insulation materials market.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Restraints

Raw material costs fluctuate, and the presence of dangerous substances may impede the market growth.

The market's expansion is expected to be hampered by fluctuating raw material prices and questions about the presence of harmful chemicals. Furthermore, due to its exceptional properties, the cost of installation is quite high, which is slowing the market's growth. The presence of a large number of replacements is seen to be a difficult element for market development. Hexabromocyclododecane (HBDC) found in polystyrene is categorized as a chemical of great concern by the European Union's (EU) Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) program, which advocates limiting its usage as much as feasible.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Opportunities

Advancement in technology may generate ample opportunities for the market growth

Thermal welding, the contactless procedure allows a range of insulation materials to be combined. Styrodur®, a stiff extruded polystyrene foam from BASF, for example, may be coupled with the melamine resin foam Basotect® or the polyurethane, inorganic insulation materials, to create whole new insulation materials solutions. Thus, technological advancements for the development of advanced material is likely to boost the market during the forecast period.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Challenges.

Disadvantages associated with the extruded polystyrene insulation material poses challenges to the market growth

Low vapor permeability, UV sensitivity, and poor sound insulation are some of the disadvantages associated with the use of extruded polystyrene insulation material. However, the biggest disadvantage of this type of material is its limited fire resistance. As soon as the stove's edge lights up, the flame consumes it entirely. Furthermore, burning releases very poisonous compounds into the environment, such as phenols, which can be just as hazardous to the lungs as the high temperature itself. Extruded polystyrene foam may catch fire at temperatures ranging from 250 to 450 degrees Celsius, depending on external variables. All such factors may serve as challenges to market growth.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market: Segmentation

The global extruded polystyrene insulation materials market is categorized based on application and region. The application segment of the market is bifurcated into residential construction and non-residential construction. In 2021, the non-residential construction segment had the majority of the market share. Because of its excellent compressive strength and minimal water absorption, extruded polystyrene is commonly used in non-residential construction. In commercial and industrial construction, it is extensively utilized in roof and wall applications.

Recent Developments

  • In October 2021, Kingspan Ireland-based company announced the acquisition of Minnesota Diversified Products, the manufacturer of the DiversiFoam range of expanded polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam billets, and extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam and polystyrene (EPS). In August 2020, Owens Corning unveiled Foamular NGX, a new range of extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam insulation products.
