The global weather barrier industry attained a value of USD 4.2 billion in 2018, aided by the growth of the North America vapour barrier market. North America weather resistant barrier industry accounts for nearly 23% of the total share in the industry, globally. During the 2020-2025, the North America weather barrier market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1%.
The growth of the construction industry in North America led by the expansion of buildings in residential and commercial sectors is the key driver for the growth of the vapour barrier industry in the region. As of 2019, the North America construction industry stood at a value of around USD 2 trillion. Also, increased government spending on public infrastructure is aiding the industry further. Within North America, the majority of the housewrap and weather resistant barrier (WRB) find their application in new homes in the US, that is, about 60% of housewrap along with WRB material is installed on new homes while the remainder is installed primarily on homes being resided.
Properties and Applications
Moisture infiltration can result in the deterioration of exterior surfaces and, thus, it can undermine structural integrity. In order to prevent this, weather resistant barriers are generally used while constructing building and other infrastructures. Vapour barrier, a type of weather resistant barrier, refers to a substance used for damp proofing, which can resist the moisture diffusion through the wall, ceiling, or roof assemblies of buildings, thus, preventing interstitial condensation. A vapour barrier usually has a permeance rating of 0.1 perm or less, thus, allowing for more vapour transmission than a vapor retarder. It finds application in:
The vapour barriers are available in different membrane types, which can be bifurcated into sheet applied and fluid applied. The major end-use segments of the product are:
The EMR report also analyses the regional markets for the vapour barrier industry in North America, which include the United States of America and Canada.
The North America vapour barrier market is being driven by the increased demand for vapour barriers, globally, to prevent the damage caused by the moisture to the buildings or other structures. Further, the rising construction activities in the region is also aiding the industry. The growth in the construction industry in North America is led by the expansion of buildings in the residential and commercial sectors. The rising urbanisation and growing population have increased the demand for residential structures in the region, providing a boost to the industry. The increasing disposable incomes has resulted in the demand for more comfortable and luxurious structures. Moisture infiltration can shorten lifespan of paints and stains, causing exterior surfaces to deteriorate, thus, the use of weather resistant barriers, like vapour and air barrier, has increased rapidly in the recent times. Also, the government spending on public infrastructure in the region has increased, thus, propelling the industry forward.
Moreover, the increasing awareness among people regarding the various health hazards is further aiding the industry growth. Increased moisture infiltration fosters mould and rot, which can cause serious health hazards to the people living in such environment, therefore, increasing the demand for vapour barriers in buildings and other structures. Further, buildings account for nearly 41% of the energy demand and 39% of carbon dioxide emissions, according to the US Department of Energy. With the advances in building science, combined with new and evolving codes, the use of insulation in the exterior walls to increase energy efficiency has increased, leading to the use of vapour barriers or air barriers to prevent condensation within the wall assemblies, and therefore, providing further impetus to the industry.
