GCC Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market Overview:

The Gcc Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Materials Market size was valued at $80.5 million in 2016, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2017 to 2023 to reach $119.9 million by 2023. Extruded polystyrenes (XPS) are thermoplastic polymers manufactured through the extrusion process. These polymers are characterized by moisture resistance, superior insulation properties, owing to their closed cell structure, high compressive strength, ease of installation & handling, and long-term thermal performance. They are suitable for use in both interior and exterior applications in cold storage installations, rail beds, transmission line power foundations, walkaways, under concrete floors, parking decks, underground utility lines, fountain foundations, and other load-bearing applications.

Factors such as increase in construction expenditure, rise in popularity of energy-efficient building systems, and surge in demand for insulation against high temperatures from the residential sector drive the growth of the insulation XPS market. However, volatile prices of raw material and concerns related to presence of toxic chemicals are expected to hinder the market growth. Conversely, the development of XPS without the use of fluorochlorohydrocarbons is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
The GCC extruded polystyrene insulation materials market is segmented based on application into residential construction and nonresidential construction. On the basis of country, it is analyzed across UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

Top Investment Pockets

UAE is projected to be the most lucrative country for the GCC extruded polystyrene insulation materials industry. In 2016, UAE accounted for more than 50% share in GCC extruded polystyrene insulation materials market, owing to the high its demand and increase in local consumption of polystyrene as a construction material. Moreover, further development of UAE as a tourism destination and surge in government investments in infrastructure are expected to fuel the demand for extruded polystyrene insulation material.
