Construction Membrane Market Overview and Introduction

Construction Membrane Market is estimated to be valued at ~US$ 2,373.6 million in 2019. The market is anticipated to further grow at a CAGR of ~ 6.5% from 2019 to 2030.

Construction membranes are high performance coated polymers made from tensioned membranes. They are lightweight and durable and are utilized in a variety of applications such as canopies, façade enclosures, roofs, and interior finishes. There are different types of construction membranes such as Polyester Fabric (PVC coated polyester fabric), Glass Fabric (PTFE coated), ETFE Sheeting and, Insulated Tensioned Membrane among others. These membranes exhibit different properties and are used according to their application in building and construction. Few of the properties exhibited by the membranes include resistant to harsh weather conditions, fire retardant, provides good mechanical strength, and exhibit self-cleaning characteristics. For instance, Glass fabric is widely used in large scale projects of architectural structures such as stadiums, airports among others as it is resistant to UV radiation and high temperatures.

The rising population and urbanization resulting increase in residential & commercial constructions projects coupled with increasing governmental investments and growing need for high tensile resistant structure conditions are the major factors propelling the construction membrane market. However, fluctuating raw material prices is likely to restrain the market to certain extent.

The global construction membrane market has primarily been segmented into the following categories, viz. By Type and By Application

Construction Membrane Market by Type

The segment of technology can be classified into polyester fabric, glass fabric, ETFE sheets, and other types. The market for the ETFE sheets accounted for the highest market share in this segment, due to its resistant property against high temperatures, chemicals, weather, aging; and UV radiation. ETFE or Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene is a translucent polymer sheet that can be used instead of glass & hard plastic for the construction of modern buildings.

Construction Membrane Market by Application

The segment of service type can be classified into tensile architecture, tents & tarps, sun shading, and other applications such as biogas construction membrane, facades, printing application, and acoustic construction membrane. The tensile architecture segment is anticipated to account for the largest market share due to their double skin thermal insulation property. Construction membranes used for tensile architecture are composed of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fiberglass, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

Construction Membrane Market by Regions

The global construction membrane market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW).  Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing regional market due to increasing construction activities that are driving the construction membrane requirements in many countries such as China, India, and Japan, presenting ample opportunities in the region. Europe accounted for the largest market share, due to local presence of many big players resulting high acceptance of membranes in the region.

Construction Membrane Market Prominent Players

Some of the key players operating in the global construction membrane market are Serge Ferrari, Heytex Gruppe, Proctor Group Australia, Sattler PRO-TEX GmbH, Sefar AG, Seaman Corporation, HIRAOKA & Co., Ltd., Saint-Gobain,, Naizil Srl Corporation, Walki Group Oy , among others.
