SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This report covers the market for expanded polystyrene (EPS) thermal insulation products inEurope and is drawn from IAL Consultants’ study set on The European Market for ThermalInsulation Products. It updates IAL Consultants’ last edition of the aforementioned study whichwas last published in 2011. IAL Consultants has many years of expertise researching the thermalinsulation markets of Europe and, more recently, China and Brazil. This is the ninth edition ofthis study.

This volume covers the following country/region markets: Austria, Baltic States (Estonia, Latviaand Lithuania), Benelux (Belgium and the Netherlands), Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark,Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia,Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. For thepurpose of this study:
  • “Nordics” refers to Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden
  • “Other Western Europe” refers to Austria, Benelux, Portugal and Switzerland
  • “Other Eastern Europe” refers to the Baltic States, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

METHODOLOGY

The study is based on desk research and an extensive series of interviews. The desk researchcovered the relevant technical and trade journals, published official statistics, figures derived bytrade associations and the data bank of IAL Consultants. This data bank has been built up overthe last twenty years from a series of studies covering products in building, construction andprocess plant industries, including paints, plastics, adhesives, sealants, polyurethanes and flameretardants.

The interview programme included high-level respondents in companies manufacturing, distributing and installing thermal insulation materials.

PRODUCTS COVERED

  • Factors affecting the type and amount of thermal insulation required include:
  • Climate
  • Durability
  • Ease of installation and replacement at end of life
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Toxicity
  • Flammability
  • Environmental impact and sustainability
  • Although a short description of each of the types of insulation discussed within this study isgiven below, it should be noted that a combination of materials is often used.
