The report on global mineral wool market provides qualitative and quantitative analysis for the period of 2016 to 2024. The report predicts the global mineral wool market to grow with a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period of 2018-2024. The study on mineral wool market covers the analysis of the leading geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW for the period of 2016 to 2024.
Mineral wool is a generic name for a range of man-made non-metallic inorganic fibres. 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 Stonewool, Slagwool (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 as ability to save energy, minimize pollution, combat noise, reduce the risk of fire and protect life and property in the event of fire. Due to its unique properties, the demand for 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 the industrial applications to avoid heat loss and save energy. There is increasing demand of acoustical insulation in the residential and commercial building all over the world. Furthermore, ongoing research and development initiatives to make 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, is expected to provide a better opportunity for the market.

On the basis of region, the Global mineral wool market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America dominates the global mineral wool market, due to presence of mineral wool manufacturers and the growth of end-use industries in this region, Also, Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2018-2024 due to huge demand of mineral wool in many application, basically demand from construction sector.
