Market Synopsis

According to the MRFR analysis, the global Mineral Wool Insulation Market was valued at around USD 14 billion in 2019. It is expected to reach around USD 31.8 billion by the end of 2030 at a CAGR of around 5.9%.

Mineral wool insulation is rock, slag, or glass produced from a molten state into fibrous form; it is divided into two types. It possessesseveral properties, including good thermal resistance, fireprotection, waterrepellency, noisereduction, and energy efficiency. High demand from building and construction and favorable government regulations are expected to propel the growth of the global mineral wool insulation market. Furthermore, the advancement in mineral wool insulation and the widening scope of applications in diverse end-use industries further fuel the growth of the global market. However, the presence of potential substitutesof Mineral wool insulation hampers the developmentof the market.


Competitive Landscape

The global mineral wool insulation is consolidated with numerous global, regional, and local players, with prominent players holding the majority share. Some of the major players include Saint-Gobain, Rockwool International, Knauf Insulation, Johns Manville Inc., and Owens Corning. Manufacturers focus mainly on acquisitions, jointventures, and partnerships with key stakeholders to gain a competitive advantage over other players.Furthermore, producers are increasingly focusing on a strategic alliance with stakeholders and expansion of production capacities to gain a maximum share of the global market. For instance, in July 2017, Knauf Insulation, a global manufacturer of insulation products, announced the expansion of its Rock Mineral Wool production facility to 110 kilotons, located in the border region of Luxembourg and the Moselle. Moreover, due to the coronavirus outbreak globally, theglobal market has witnessed a decline in demand.
