High demand for wool insulation.

Wool insulation is highly used material for building insulations due to its characteristics which includes high thermal property, effective cost-efficiency, and durability. The growing need for glass wool in the thermal insulation market is attributed to its various properties including soundproofing, versatility, non-flammability, and low maintenance costs. The abundant availability of resources, low carbon footprint, easy installation, energy-efficient insulation, and incombustibility of the material will further strengthen the scope of wool insulation material in the market.

High energy requirements

The demand for thermal insulation in buildings is aligned both with the growth of the construction industry and energy industry. The cost of energy is rising due to its high demand in regions such as Europe and North America. Building and construction thermal insulation is used to mitigate the high energy requirement, as buildings account for nearly 40% of energy consumption. The major factors that increase the usage of building thermal insulation are the rising scarcity of energy, cost of energy, and increasing pressure to reduce global warming caused by the use of fossil fuels.
