North America Air Barrier Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.22% between 2020 and 2025.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘North America Air Barrier Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025', the North America air barrier market attained a value of nearly USD 1.6 billion in 2019. The air barrier market in North America is further expected to grow in the forecast period of 2020-2025 at a CAGR of 4.22% to reach a value of USD 2 billion by 2025.

The North America air barrier market is being driven by the increasing demand from the construction and infrastructure industry, along with the inflating disposable income and rapid urbanisation. Air barrier waterproofing ensures air is entrapped and does not leak or transfer in or out of the building. It forms a consistent airtight envelope around the building. The North America air barrier market is being driven by the growth of the United States market where owners and contractors are updating the existing infrastructure to meet the new green building codes.

Carlisle Companies, Inc. (NYSE: CSL) and RPM International Inc. (NYSE: RPM), key players in the air barrier market in North America, have expanded and enhanced their waterproofing segment, thus, supporting the growth of their related air barrier segment too. In 2017, Carlisle Companies, Inc. declared the acquisition of Arbo Holdings Limited, a leading supplier of coatings, sealants, and membrane systems used by architects and contractors for waterproofing and air barrier applications. The acquisition of Arbo Holdings Limited, thus, added to the expansion of Carlisle’s waterproofing segment. In 2019, RPM International Inc., another significant player in the market, the company announced the acquisition of Schul International Co., LLC, and Wilseal LLC to be integrated into RPM's Tremco Commercial Sealants & Waterproofing business. Air barrier and waterproofing solutions help the building endure harsh climates and ensure the longevity of the structure.
