Rockwool Market Forecast Covering Growth Inclinations & Development Strategies until 2018-2028

Lab, Research, Chemistry, Test

The impact of COVID-19 pandemic can be felt across the chemical industry. The growing inability in the production and manufacturing processes, in the light of the self-quarantined workforce has caused a major disruption in the supply chain across the sector. Restrictions encouraged by this pandemic are obstructing the production of essentials such as life-saving drugs.

Rockwool is a natural fiber processed by crushing, heating, and melting rock or stone materials in a furnace at high temperature. Rockwool are characterized by numerous physical and chemical properties such as fire resilience, thermal insulation, acoustic capabilities, robust, and better aesthetics. Rockwool are available many forms including chopped, strands, or grid, and they are widely adopted in construction, automotive, aerospace and defence, and power generation industry.

Rockwool: Market Drivers and Challenges

In the construction industry rockwool is used for internal heat and sound insulation of floors, walls, tubes and pipes, tanks, chimneys, fire protection structures, amongst others. It is also used as reinforcing material instead of steel and other fibers. Thus, the increased spending in the construction sector by regional government and increasing number of private-public partnerships (PPP) and aforementioned properties of rockwool are anticipated to attribute towards the growth of the rockwool’s in the construction industry.

Temperature maintenance, noise control, and comfortability are the crucial requirements in residential and commercial infrastructures, especially in hospitals and healthcare centers, thus the use of rockwool insulated walls and composites is an emerging trend, which in turn, is estimated to drive the demand for the rockwool market in coming years. Also, controlled temperature dramatically reduces the energy cost and building’s carbon footprint, thereby aiding to the cause of the green environment. Further, rockwools are being widely adopted in building’s that are in close proximity of railways, tramways or airports, which can be very noisy.

Furthermore, use of the rockwools in the manufacturing of heat and sound insulation of engines, interiors of buses, and lightweight vehicle composites are the foreseeable trend in the automotive industry, which in turn, is estimated to drive the demand for rockwool over the forecast period. Increasing penetration of lightweight composites materials in the automotive industry and the growing concern about the environmental pollution and stringent regulations pertaining to vehicle emissions resulting in the greenhouse effect, there has been a significant swift rise in demand for light weight automotive cabin components. Thus, the automotive segment is estimated to witness higher growth rate among other end-use industries. Moreover, in the aerospace industry, rockwools are used predominantly for heat and sound insulation. Additionally, rockwool’s increasing demand in the manufacturing of lightweight aircraft parts to augment the growth of the market during the projected period.

However, the initial equipment set up and plant establishment is a capital intensive process and therefore requires technical expertise and high cost of production which could inhibit the growth the rockwool market.
