An essential part of the weather barrier industry includes air barriers. Air barriers protect the critical elements of the building like the walls, floors, and base, among others, from corrosion and chemical damage. It, therefore, guarantees that buildings are preserved and extends their lives. Air barrier systems have airtight quality and stability in a wide range of temperatures. Europe is the largest market for air barriers and accounts for 36% of the industry, globally. It is followed by the Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The industry is majorly driven by the global construction industry, which is rapidly growing. Increasing construction of non-residential buildings and modernizing transportation are significant drivers for the industry. The construction industry is aided by the rising population, urbanization as well as an increase in domestic manufacturing. The hurricanes and the California wildfires in the United States are leading to rising demand for new constructions, and are, thus, aiding the growth of the weather barrier industry in North America. The majority of the house wrap and weather-resistant barrier (WRB) find their application in new buildings in the US, i.e., about 60% of house wrap / WRB material is installed on new buildings. The remainder is mainly installed on resided homes. Fluid-applied membranes now make up about 3% of new house wrap / WRB facilities.
Properties and Applications
