Commercial wall water resistive barrier is a material or system designed to prevent water penetration through the exterior walls of commercial buildings. The market has been growing rapidly over the past few years due to increasing demand for energy-efficient and sustainable buildings, growing awareness of moisture management, and increasing construction activities.
The growth of the construction industry is driving the demand for Commercial Wall Water Resistive Barrier (WRB). As more commercial buildings are constructed, there is a greater need for effective moisture management solutions.There is an increased awareness of the importance of moisture management in building construction. Moisture intrusion can lead to a range of problems, including mold, mildew, and other damage to the building structure. Water-resistive barriers are an effective solution to manage moisture intrusion.
Furthermore, with growing concerns about climate change and energy consumption, there is a greater focus on constructing energy-efficient and sustainable buildings. The use of WRB is an essential part of construction that helps to improve energy efficiency and reduce the building's carbon footprint. For instance, when WRB is installed in the building it is better protected and can maintain a more consistent and comfortable indoor temperature with less energy required leading to significant energy savings, lower energy bills, and reduced carbon emissions.
The commercial wall water-resistive barrier is broadly segmented into product and type. The product segment is further categorized into roofing underlayment, wrapped sheathing, building wraps, membranes, insulating board stock, rain screens, building paper, and spray polyurethane foam. The type segment is further subdivided into fluid-applied, self-adhered, and mechanical.
Some of the key players operating in this market are VaproShield, Henry Company, Pecora Corporation, DuPont, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LLC and Georgia-Pacific Wood Products LLC., and others. Prominent players involved in the marketplace are continuously focusing on business expansion activities through collaborations and partnerships across the value chain. For instance, in July 2021, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LLC and Georgia-Pacific Wood Products LLC. announced an expansion in their product line by launching DensDefy, a fluid-applied WRB barrier.
Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to the region's rapid urbanization, increasing construction activities, and growing awareness of moisture management in building construction.
