Description

Insulated concrete forms (ICF) are hollow foam blocks which are stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel rebar, and then filled with concrete. They are used for building structures for residential, commercial, and industrial purposes. These blocks are steadily gaining traction in the market owing to growing awareness among the general public regarding its benefits such as less energy consumption, disaster resistance, and environment-friendly. Burgeoning construction activities across the globe is expected to boost the market for insulated concrete form.

By material type, expanded polystyrene is projected to grow at a significant CAGR. Expanded Polystyrene Foam is lightweight, durable, moisture resistant and has low thermal conductivity resulting in an increase in its demand during the forecast period.

Geographically, North America and Europe hold a major share of the market due to the presence of the majority of players. Market share is expected to be low in emerging nations of Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East and South America due to lack of awareness about the latest construction technologies in these regions.

DRIVERS

Growing construction activities

A rise in demand for energy efficient buildings

RESTRAINTS

High cost involved in the use of ICF for construction

INDUSTRY UPDATES

In September 2018, RPMInternational Inc. acquired Nudura Corporation, the leading manufacturer and distributor of insulated concrete forms in North America.
