London-Market research group Frost & Sullivan is to host an exclusive interactive briefing Wednesday 29 Nov 2006, at 15.00 GMT, to provide manufacturers, distribution channels, end-users and other industry participants with an overview of the thermal insulation markets in Europe.
"With building energy conservation regulations ever tightening, opportunities are abound for suppliers to the thermal insulation market in Europe," said F&S in its announcement of the briefing.
"At the same time, the regulations do have the potential to alter the market landscape. Will one type of insulation material be preferred over another? Which materials are to benefit most from the current trend towards efficient building insulation?," F&S added.
Such questions will be addressed by Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Plastics & Polymers, Hariharan Ramasubramanian, during the briefing.
F&S said suppliers to the polymer foam industry, polymer foam processors, and stonewool and rockwool producers will benefit from Ramasubramanian's elaborations.
"Rising energy costs and tightening building energy conservation regulations have increased the awareness among the general public for efficient household thermal insulation. Coupled with recovering construction activity in the main European economies, this will bode well for suppliers", said Ramasubramanian, in the F&S announcement. "At this point, it is quite interesting to study the impact this trend will have on the individual product types in the European market for thermal insulation."
