The thermal insulation market is expected to grow from $53.39 billion in 2022 to $72.9 billion by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3 percent from 2022 to 2028.

The thermal insulation market growth is driven by the increasing spending on the construction industry by various governments of different countries. The demand for thermal insulation has increased, as it reduces heat movements and vapor condensation. It prevents humidity, mold, freezing and deformation. Moreover, increasing government initiatives for promoting the construction of the green building is bolstering the thermal insulation market growth.

The surging construction of zero energy buildings is contributing to the thermal insulation market growth. Thermal insulation materials limit the flow of heat energy from two ends of different temperatures. Thermal insulation material offers insulation in which the radiative heat is reflected, reduced and absorbed. Additionally, the high demand for lightweight thermal insulation products has compelled many companies to launch lightweight insulation products, such as plastic, as it is easy to install due to its lightweight property. This factor is augmenting the thermal insulation market growth.
