The second research titled Global Insulation Market 2015-2019 says need for market consolidation to take advantage of economies of scale and increase revenue has created an environment for more M&A in the global insulation market. Horizontal integration will give companies an opportunity to acquire new customers and increase their market share. The need to increase their strength in insulation solution offerings has also forced companies increasingly to opt for M&A. Some vendors have a strong regional presence and a strong understanding of customer preferences in the region. This has increased the scope for M&A among insulation vendors. Knauf Insulation acquiring Guardian Insulation in 2014 and Kingspan acquiring the building insulation division of Pactiv are some examples of M&A. This report forecasts the insulation market to grow at 7.94% CAGR to 2019.

According to the report, retrofitting has become one of the major sources of revenue for insulation material vendors. The economic crisis of 2009 has made residential and non-residential end-users hold back on their new investments and retrofit their existing requirements. This opportunity has opened new doors for increased revenue for vendors in the market. The major source of revenue for refurbishment and renovation activities for insulation materials will come from developed countries such as the US in North America, and the UK, Germany, and France in Europe. As most of the developed countries in these regions are early adopters of insulation materials, there is a need to replace insulation materials as use of fiberglass and stone wool will give better insulation. Further, the report states that the increased supply of oil and gas coupled with low demand has reduced prices worldwide, leading to a reduction in energy costs.

BASF, Huntsman, Knauf Insulation Group, Owens Corning and Recticel are major companies discussed in this insulation market research. Other prominent vendors simply mentioned in this report include Bayer, Byucksan, Carlisle Insulation, CSR, Dalian Rockwool, Fletcher Building, GAF Materials, Hebei Renqiu Jinglian Group, Johns-Manville, Kingspan Group, Ningbo Firewheel Thermal Insulation & Sealing, Nova Chemicals, Paroc Group, Recticel, Rockwool Group, Saint-Gobain, Tengzhou City Huahai New Thermal Insulation Material, The Dow Chemical and Xtratherm.
