Metal faced insulated panels having a continuous core for insulation sandwiched between metallic covering. They are factory molded and manufactured, using foamed-in-place process. They provide protection to buildings by acting as barriers toelements such as weather, atmosphere, and thermal. They are easy to install, weigh less, and provide better structural integrity. They are more energy and material efficient, offering greater design flexibility. They are more versatile than other exterior systems like concrete, singular metal panels etc. In the long term, they are more durable, reduce operating costs, andhave better life cycle cost. They also come in a variety of colors and finishes.The combination of metals for outer protection and insulation for inner one in different configurations satisfy divergent needs.
The major end-users of the metal faced insulated panel arein the construction, cold storage, and transportation industry. The panels are especially used in constructing commercial, aerospace,educational, healthcare, and industrial facilities.Cold storage and food processing plants utilize their thermal barrier benefits. Acoustical benefits are utilized in convention centers for soundproofing. Refrigerated vehicles are increasingly utilizing these panels to satisfy insulation and high strength requirements.Market Dynamics
The demand for metal insulated panels is mainly driven by the construction industry. The need for environmentally sustainable panels with better performance is another driver. The need for protecting buildings from a variety ofexternal forces like pollution, and retaining internal ambient conditions is also driving this industry.
This increasing demand is constrained by corrosion and deformation of constituents in extreme environments. Another impediment is the maturing cold storage market in developed economies. These constraints are mitigated by improving technology, and movement of the relevant markets to other economies providing a multibillion-dollaropportunity for growth.Market Segmentation
The market can be segmented in terms of the types of materials used, by styles, and by its application.
Segmentation based on materials includes but is not limited to polyurethane or polyisocyanurate foams, with a variety of metallic coverings like steel coil, stainless steel, aluminumetc. Based on styles, it can be segmented by the thickness required, the design, the finish, and its requirement for either walls or roofs.Based on application, it can be classified on the basis of the industrial sectors of its end users.
All of the above segmentations are fluid as new technologies emerge and newer combinations come into play for different sectors. Additionally, the geographical concentration of the markets and the makers give an additional layout to these segments.
Europe especially Western Europe, followed by APAC (Middle East, China), and then North America (USA), house the largest metal faced insulated panel makers.Europe is currently the largest market,followed by APAC, and then South America. The demand for these panels would shift to APAC with their booming economies and greater construction requirements.
Future opportunities will come from the growing economies in the APAC region, majorly China and India. Large infrastructure projects will drive the growth in this region.The requirement for cold storage facilities and vehicles in these regions will also provide future opportunities.Key Players
