Radiant Barrier is a heat reflective insulation material generally used to block the radiant heat from a heat radiating surfaces especially in commercial buildings. The most common material used as a radiant barrier is reflective aluminum foil. These barriers are used mainly in rooftops of buildings and houses especially equatorial, tropical and lower temperate zones of the world. The radiant barriers prevent the heat from coming inside and hence makes a place cooler by 8 – 9 degrees than the existing ambient temperatures. Apart from this, radiant barrier has other advantages such it can act as a vapor barrier and also incorporates lesser space occupancy rate compared to bulk insulation.

Global Radiant Barrier Market Dynamics

The global Radiant Barrier market is anticipated to be driven by many factors, out of which the main factor being global warming. The product is finding good acceptance as people use radiant barriers in their homes and buildings so that the heat is prevented from coming inside, making the place comparatively cooler. Radiant barriers are most effective in blocking summer radiant heat gain thus, saving air-cooling costs of the desired space.  Also, use of radiant barrier has been helpful for the builders in getting accreditation for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), which is a mandatory norm for design of buildings – in both residential and commercial segments, thus resulting in increase of demand of the product.  However, global radiant barrier has some restraints as the product installation involves a high cost owing to additional support materials, making it less preferred than other heat insulating materials. Also radiant barrier may result in an electrical safety risk where the foil comes in contact with defective electrical wiring.

Global Radiant Barrier Market Segmentation 

The global radiant barrier market is segmented on the basis of product types which includes foil or foil laminates, foil-faced polyurethane or foil-faced polysiocyanurate panels, foil-faced polystyrene, foil-backed bubble pack and light-colored roof shingles and reflective paints.

On the basis of materials used, the global radiant barrier is divided into aluminum foil laminates, aluminized plastic films, wood, glass, plaster and others.

On the basis of application, the global radiant barrier is divided into residential and commercial purposes. Residential application further includes new construction, remodeling and retrofit. On the other hand, on the basis of commercial application it includes new and retrofit, industrial, agricultural( greenhouse production, nursery farms), shipping, food service, automotive, OEM , aviation, aerospace & defence and others.
