Commercial and Agriculture Sector to Dominate Demand for Radiant Barriers and Reflective Insulation, Holding More than 40% Market Share

Published On : Feb 15, 2021

The importance of sustainable development and energy conservation is being posed by environmental issues and rising energy costs. A large portion of overall energy consumption is accounted for by the construction industry. Therefore, radiant barriers and reflective insulation have become an important part in commercial as well as residential building construction, as these reduce heat gain in the summer and lower the cooling cost by reflecting radiant heat. Furthermore, growing demand from the industrial sector in pipes, tanks, boilers, laboratories, heat shields etc., is driving growth of the radiant barrier and reflective insulation market. The agriculture sector is also a prominent end user, providing added impetus to market growth.

As per Persistence Market Research analysis, the global radiant barrier and reflective insulation market is estimated to expand at an impressive CAGR 8.5% over the forecast period of 2021-2031.
