The building & construction sector has grown rapidly in both developed and developing economies, owing to surge in demand for commercial spaces such as offices, hotels, malls, industrial corridors, and others. Furthermore, increase in investments in building infrastructure in countries such as France, Italy, Spain, and others, have led the building & construction sector to witness significant growth. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the rockwool market in building & construction sector. In addition, strong economic growth augments the establishments of industries where rockwool is widely used as insulation in pipes, tanks, columns, vessels, chimneys, boilers, cold boxes, and others. These are the major rockwool market growth factors.

However, adverse health effects associated with the prolonged exposure to rockwool, such as acute irritation of the skin, eyes and the upper respiratory tract, pulmonary fibrosis, pleural mesothelioma, and lung cancer, may restrain the market growth. 

On the contrary, the increasing awareness for energy saving activities has surged the popularity of rockwool in various end-use sectors owing to its potential to reduce energy costs by lowering heating and cooling costs; thereby reducing CO2 emissions. This factor is anticipated to increase the sales of rockwool among various end-use sectors; thus creating lucrative opportunities for the market. 

The EMA rockwool market is segmented on the basis of product type, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of product type, the market is categorized into rolled, panels, and others. On the basis of end-use industry, it is divided into building & construction, transportation, industrial & appliances, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across Europe, Maghreb, and Africa.
