Key Market Trends

Residential Application to Dominate the Market

  • Residential application segment dominated the global market. ICF offers a high level of energy efficiency when compared to traditional construction materials such as bricks, and wood.
  • An increase in the number of building codes that demand energy efficiency has led to the rise in the number of ICF constructions in the residential sector.
  • For instance, the new energy code in Canada demands continuous below-grade insulations in residential structures.
  • According to distributors and installers in the two major markets of the United States and Canada, the vast majority of ICF home constructions are skewed toward high-end custom homes, and the demand is still being driven by homeowners, in terms of the number of projects.
  • Multi-family homes attribute to the largest market growth in the residential sector. Moreover, basement constructions still make up a significant portion of ICF residential construction works.
  • Hence, with growing awareness and promotional campaigns held by various ICF organizations, the market for ICF in the residential sector is expected to grow over the forecast period.
