Report Overview

The Americas structural insulated panel market size was valued at USD 3.0 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5% from 2020 to 2027. The growing adoption of green building standards and the rising establishment of cold chain infrastructure are anticipated to drive the market. Increased R&D expenditure to develop advanced manufacturing techniques and vacuum insulation panels that are economically viable for household applications is anticipated to benefit the industry growth over the forecast period. In addition, the development of hybrid insulation technology is projected to fuel product demand. In the U.S., the demand for the rigid polyurethane segment is expected to grow at a significant pace. Growing product adoption for the insulation purposes in the cold chain industry on account of its superior thermal insulation and vapor diffusion resistance properties is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The U.S. structural insulated panel market size

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), rigid polyurethane, glass wool, and Oriented Strand Board (OSB), and metal sheets are some of the most commonly used raw materials in the production of structural insulated panels. Fluctuations in the prices of raw materials result in variations of product prices, thus affecting the profit margins of manufacture.

Structural insulated panels are completely fabricated at factories and are shipped to the job site in a ready-to-install state. Metal sheets are emerging as a preferred facing material owing to their durability, fireproof property, and superior surface finish. Moreover, insulated metal panels are available in a variety of colors, thus making them suitable for application on building exteriors.

The blowing agents employed in the insulation industry contain ozone-depleting substances that can cause serious environmental issues. In addition, the EPA has put stringent restrictions on the use and disposal of plastic foams, such as polystyrene, owing to their non-biodegradability. Such restrictions are projected to restraint the market growth over the projected to period.

Product Insights

The EPS segment led the market and accounted for more than 76% share of the total revenue in 2019. The demand for EPS panels is driven by their high compression strength, moisture resistance, sound absorption, lightweight, and quakeproof properties, along with the high functionality in challenging environments.

The extruded polystyrene (XPS) segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. The XPS insulation is manufactured using an extrusion process, forming a closed-cell structure with smooth skin on the top and bottom of the board. In addition, the closed-cell structure of the material prevents water penetration in the insulation board, thereby providing long-term durability and strength.

Polyurethane foam (PUR) and Polyisocyanurate foam (PIR) are manufactured from two components, namely isocyanate (MDI) and polyol. Both these insulating materials are rapidly emerging as an alternative to polystyrene insulation materials owing to their superior thermal insulation property, rigidity, fire resistance, and dimensional stability.

The glass wool segment also accounted for a significant market share in 2019. Apart from being low-cost, the glass wool panels exhibit excellent thermal insulation and superior fire resistance and noise insulation properties. As a result, these panels are often used in wall and roof applications in the construction of commercial and industrial buildings.

Application Insights

The building walls segment led the market and accounted for more than 46% of the total revenue share in 2019. Insulation of walls is one of the essential elements to enhance the energy efficiency of buildings. Insulated walls and roofs create a protective envelope, which eliminates heat transfer from the external environment through conduction and convection radiation.

Insulated roof panels offer heat retention and prevention benefits, thereby enabling cozy space in houses and workspaces. Temperature regulated by insulated roofs leads to improvement in the energy efficiency of buildings through a reduction in the usage of air conditioning systems and heaters. Thus, these benefits provide a major boost to product demand.

The cold storage segment is anticipated to progress at the fastest CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period. Growing investments in the establishment of cold chain infrastructure are expected to be the primary driving factor for the segment growth. Furthermore, rising product utilization for retrofitting to the existing cold storage structures is projected to aid product demand.

The structural insulated panels are fabricated in a factory environment and are assembled and installed at the project location. These panels are directly attached to the supporting structure of buildings in multiple steps, thereby eliminating the need for constructing insulated walls and roofing. Thus, product usage delivers significant savings in terms of total project time and cost required.

Regional Insights

North America led the market and accounted for over 66% of the total revenue share in 2019 owing to high product utilization in the construction of sustainable, energy-efficient buildings. In addition, an increase in the incidents of natural calamities, including hurricanes and wildfire, hitting different parts of the region is anticipated to boost the product demand over the forecast period.

The product demand in Brazil is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period on account of growing product utilization in the residential application. Furthermore, government support for the construction of affordable housing structures aided by easy credit availability is expected to boost the product demand in the country.

The U.S. market is expected to witness robust growth over the forecast period owing to the growth in the regional construction sector. Increased demand for energy-efficient construction solutions and the adoption of green building standards are the primary factors driving the market growth.

The Central & South America region is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.4% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the increasing investments in industrial infrastructure projects by foreign and domestic private companies in the region, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the product demand.
