The air barrier industry constitutes a significant segment of the weather barrier market. The air barrier is applied to the building in order to prevent its integral parts like roofs, walls, and foundation, among others, from corrosion and chemical damage. Thus, it maintains the integrity of the building and extends its life. Materials in the air barrier help transform the building withstand a wide range of temperatures and provide durability to the construction. The air barrier directs the moisture flow, heat flow, airflow, and other radiations that take place in the building. Airflow affects a material's long-term performance and structural integrity as it carries moisture. It also influences a building's performance in fire, besides thermal energy and indoor air quality. Thus, air barriers are used to control the effects of airflow.

Europe is the largest market for air barriers. It is followed by the Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa as the other major markets of air barriers. Increasing awareness about the reduction of negative impact on the environment by the use of air barriers, which in turn reduce the use of natural resources for power generation, is also a major key driver boosting the growth of the market.

Properties and Applications

The air barrier is an important feature of waterproofing. When air leakage takes place, a substantial amount of moisture is transmitted through diffusion, whereas a low amount of moisture is comparatively diffused in vapor diffusion.

On the basis of membrane types, the industry can be divided into:

  • Sheet Applied
  • Fluid Applied

The sheet-applied air barrier is a membrane that is self-adhesive and controls moisture transmission and air leakage in walls. The fluid-applied types are available in vapour permeable formulations and synthetic rubber.

The air barrier industry can be divided based on application into:

  • Masonry 
  • Gypsum Board 
  • Glass 
  • Plywood 
  • Others

Based on end-use, the industry can be segregated into:

  • Residential Building
  • Commercial Building
  • Public Infrastructure

The report also covers the regional markets of the product like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Market Analysis

The global air barrier industry is driven by the increase in the demand for the product from infrastructure and construction industries. The market in the North America region is led by the rising disposable incomes and rapid urbanization. The rise in demand for energy-efficient and green buildings are supporting the growth of the Asia Pacific air barrier market. The product provides green certification for buildings by reducing a property owner's heating and cooling costs, along with increased comfort.

There is a growing trend of commercial building construction shifting to that of a holistic design. A holistic design with air barrier ensures that the building has prolonged durability, energy-efficiency, and improved internal environment quality and, thus, provides further impetus to the industry growth. The extension of product categories and constant product innovations are driving the industry forward. The extreme climatic condition in the regions is propelling the industry forward. The demand for air barriers has increased, especially in North America, due to alternating cold and mixed climates intensifying the moisture retention problem in buildings. In North America, the industry is being aided by the revival of the construction sector with a greater focus on green buildings.

The market for air barrier has increased due to the rising demand and growing awareness of the high-performance buildings with energy-conserving features like air barrier systems to reduce air infiltration in the buildings. Environmentally conscious consumers prefer air barriers due to fewer natural resources being used in power generation.

Competitive Landscape

January 2017- Carlisle Companies, Inc. announced its acquisition of Arbo Holdings Limited, a leading supplier of sealants, coatings, and membrane systems used by contractors and architects for air and vapour barrier applications and waterproofing.
