the Building Insulation Market

Update 08/11/2019


1.1 Presentation of insulation

According to the INSEE's French Activity Nomenclature, the sub-category of Building Insulation Work (NAF 43.29A) covers thermal insulation work (including hot and cold water pipes, boilers and pipes doubling with insulating materials), sound insulation work and fireproofing work.

The French Construction Federation (Fédération Française du Bâtiment - FFB) mentions a minimum number of 20 million homes that will require renovation by 2050.

To this must be added a growing concern for sustainable development and the preservation of ecosystems to slow global warming. Thus, thermal insulation is one of the major challenges of residential as well as professional real estate.

In addition, government policy in recent years has proposed numerous financial aids to consumers such as tax deductions, zero-rated eco-loans, etc. (see Regulation section). The market for building insulation is thus boosted by this governmental effort.

In 2017 the market for construction insulation materials increased by 5% and more than 230 million m2 have been installed. In this market, new housing accounted for more than half of the total area laid.
