Vapour Barrier Market 2021 Industry Research, Segmentation, Key Players Analysis and Forecast to 2029

The global vapour barrier market is on a steady growth trajectory, primarily driven by the rising number of infrastructure development activities. Projecting the market growth at a moderate CAGR of 4%, a new market study by Future Market Insights (FMI), provides a detailed analysis of the market and the COVID-19′s impact on the market.

In recent times, infrastructure development activities in the private, public, commercial, and residential sectors are inclining towards green building concepts on the back of growing environmental awareness, subsequently leveraging the amenities of modern technological advancements. Owing to this fact, the demand for vapour barriers is propelling over the forecast period (2019 – 2029).

“The market facing an adversary in the form of global outbreak of COVID-19 that has led the construction activities to a standstill for an indefinite period of time. With mounting restrictions on movement, the trade is taking the blow. BASF Group, a prominent player, has issued a statement stating that the viral infection could result in the second year of falling profit for the company and reduce the production to about 1.2%. That would be the worst growth for the sector since the Great Recession in 2008 and a significant dip compared to 2019 when it grew 1.8%. While the statement stands true to the overall chemical industry, the impact of the pandemic on vapour barrier segment is inevitable,” says the FMI analyst.
