Research and Markets Logo

Global Breathable Membranes market accounted for $1.06 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $3.05 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 12.5%.

Rising durability & cost-effectiveness of breathable membranes and growing awareness for safeguarding building materials are some of the key factors influencing the market growth. However, slow growth price of construction industry in Western Europe and utilize of breathable membranes of growing wall thickness and is hindering the market growth. Moreover, growing demand for high-performance airtight membranes and stringent government norms on minimizing the energy consumption of buildings are providing ample opportunities.

Breathable membranes are primarily used in roofs and walls. This moisture eventually reaches the roof and can cause condensation, thereby damaging the roof structure. Breathable membranes are films and sheets which allow the exchange of air, water vapor and gasses but restrict the liquid from penetrating through. These membranes prevent water from entering the roof structure while providing cold and warm ventilation. Large amount of water vapor can be produced in a building. This membrane is made up of several materials, ranging from polytetrafluoroethylene to polyurethane and microporous polypropylene.

Amongst application, pitched roof is expected to grow at a substantial growth rate, due to numerous advantages of pitched roof including help maintain thermal efficiency and safeguarding the building materials from extra moisture. By geography Asia-Pacific except Japan region accounts for significantly high volume share in the market for the construction industry owing to the rapid rate of urbanization in the region.
