The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of the global mineral wool market. According to the report the global mineral wool market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
Mineral wool is a generic name for a range of man-made non-metallic
inorganic fibers. It is widely known for its wide range of insulation
applications. It is a common name for fiber materials that are formed by
melting the raw material at high temperatures, creating a “lava”, and then
spinning this into delicate fibers using centrifugal wheels. The common types
of Mineral Wool are Stone wool, Slag wool (both of which are often referred to as
Rockwool, which is actually a brand in most countries) and Glass Mineral Wool
(previously referred to a Fibreglass or Fiberglass). These products are
manufactured in similar processes and have similar properties. It is widely
used in all sectors of industry as transport and building for thermal, acoustic
and fire-protection purposes, etc.
Mineral wool has very unique properties, that no other
insulation material can provide an ability to save energy, minimize pollution,
combat noise, reduce the risk of fire and protect life and property in the
event of a fire. Due to its unique properties, the demand for the mineral wool
market is growing globally. The most important driving force behind the ongoing
innovation of mineral wool products is the high demand for thermal insulation.
The building materials using glass wool insulation consistently has proven it
the most cost-effective solution. This has increased the demand for heat
insulation products for industrial applications to avoid heat loss and save
energy. There is an increasing demand for acoustical insulation in residential
and commercial building all over the world. Furthermore, ongoing research and
development initiatives to make the mineral fiber more innovative and more
applicable to consumers is also a factor for the growth of the market globally.
Due to some health issues as workplace exposure limits to workers, and standardization
issues, every government has separate laws related to mineral wool production
and sale, hence MNCs involved in this business have to follow its host
country’s rule for business. The abundance availability of raw materials, and
growing building and construction sector especially in developing countries as
India and China are expected to provide a better opportunity for the market.
