North America Air Barrier Market Outlook

The North America air barrier market reached a value of almost USD 1.6 billion in the year 2019. The regional market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.22% between 2020 and 2025 to reach a value of almost USD 2 billion by 2025.

Air barrier is a significant segment of the weather barrier industry. Air barrier prevents the essential parts of the building like the walls, roofs, and foundation, among others, from corrosion and chemical damage. Thus, it ensures the maintenance of the buildings and prolongs their lives. Air barrier materials provide an airtight barrier in a wide range of temperatures and offer durability to the structure. Air barriers control and manage the moisture flow, airflow, heat flow, and other radiations that come in contact with the building. Airflow carries moisture that influences a material’s long-term performance and structural integrity. It also affects a building’s behaviour during fire along with influencing the indoor air quality and thermal energy. Thus, to control the effects of airflow, air barriers are used.

Countries like United States and Canada have significant and growing industries for air barrier due to the harsh cold climates and other mixed climates in these countries. Growing awareness regarding reducing the undesirable impact on the environment by using air barriers, which support the use of fewer natural resources for power generation, is also driving the industry forward.

 

Properties and Applications

Air barrier plays an essential role in waterproofing because when air leakage takes place, it leads to a significant amount of moisture being transmitted by diffusion, as compared to vapour diffusion.

The various membrane types available in the market are:

  • Sheet Applied
  • Fluid Applied

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

Based on application, the air barrier industry can be divided into:

  • Masonry
  • Gypsum Board
  • Glass
  • Plywood
  • Others

The industry is segregated on the basis of end-use into:

  • Residential Building
  • Commercial Building
  • Public Infrastructure

The regional markets for North America air barrier market are the United States and Canada. The market in the United States can be further sub-divided into New England, Mideast, Great Lakes, Plains, Southeast, Southwest, Rocky Mountain, and Far West regions, while the Canadian market can be segregated into Northern Canada, British Columbia, Alberta, the Prairies, Central Canada, and Atlantic Canada regions.

 

Market Analysis

The North America market for air barrier is being driven by the increasing demand from the construction and infrastructure industries. The North American region is led by countries like the United States and Canada due to the rising disposable income and rapid urbanization. The increase in the demand for energy-efficient buildings by owners and building codes is resulting in an increase in demand for air barriers. The air barrier prevents the heat transmission in the building from the outside or the inside, which results in reducing a property owner's heating and cooling costs and provides increased comfort. Thus, air barrier provides green certification for building, further enhancing the growth of the industry.

The shifting approach of commercial building construction to that of holistic design, which ensures energy efficiency, prolonged durability of the building, and internal environmental quality is providing further impetus to the growth of the North America air barrier industry. Product innovations and the expansion of product categories are driving the industry forward. The air barrier industry is being led by the recovery in the construction sector in the region with a greater focus on green buildings and innovative products addressing moisture control and management. Climate change due to extreme climatic conditions is propelling the industry further. There is an increase in demand for air barriers due to alternating cold and mixed climates, which intensify the problem of moisture retention in buildings.

Demand for high performance buildings with the energy conserving features like air barrier systems to lessen the air infiltration in the buildings has increased, aiding the industry growth. Environmentally conscious consumers are choosing air barriers as they use fewer natural resources for power generation, thus, as a result helping reduce the undesirable environment impacts of non-renewable power generation.
