Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) Market reached US$ XX million in 2022 and is expected to record significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period (2023-2030).

EIFS means exterior insulation and finishing system. It is a protective, insulating, decorative finish system for exterior or outer walls that can be applied to any structure. EIFS allows architects to create flexibly and aesthetically pleasingly while fulfilling modern energy requirements. It is an architectural finish that provides weather protection and insulation in any desired texture, color and shape. 

It may be used to emulate any architectural design or finish material. In the residential and non-residential construction industries, EIFS has a considerable market share. The primary end-users of EIFS include residential structures such as bungalows and apartments and non-residential structures such as schools, hospitals, industrial workspaces and offices.

Exterior Insulation and Finish System Market Dynamics and Trends

The increased regulations to limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduction in energy usage & costs related to it are two main reasons driving the global exterior insulation and finish system market. However, the lack of knowledge and ready availability of green insulation material may restrain market expansion. 

Strict regulations to limit the greenhouse gas emission 

The exterior insulation and finish system is a non-load-bearing exterior wall system that consists of an insulating board bonded to the substrate either with adhesive or mechanically or both. It is defined by the International Building Code and ASTM International as having an integrally reinforced base coat and a textured protective finish layer.

Government measures encouraging energy-efficient heating and cooling systems to reduce energy consumption are significant drivers for exterior insulation and finish systems. The European Heads of State committed in March 2007 to a binding and unilateral reduction of 20% in GHG emissions by 2020. With plans to reduce GHG emissions by 20% by 2020 and 40% by 2030, this agreement has become a legal requirement. 

Reduction in energy usage and costs related to it 

Buildings all around Germany were damaged during World War II and needed to be resurfaced. EIFS was developed in Germany and introduced to U.S. in the late 1960s. EIFS can be used as an energy-efficient and cost-effective wall covering in new construction and recladding applications. Even though EIFS is expensive initially, it provides a good return on investment over time. It can help save anywhere from 20% to 30% on your annual energy expenditures. Consumers in developed and emerging countries demand better home heating and cooling services. This demand raises energy consumption and, as a result, the associated expense.

Lack of knowledge and ready availability of green insulation material

Consumers and building professionals are unaware of the need for building thermal insulation (EIFS). Europe has the widest gap between current regulations and recommended energy performance. In Europe, a substantial endeavor is needed to educate awareness and bring construction rules in line with Ecofys VII's findings (Ecofys is an innovative and creative company that creates smart, effective and practically sustainable solutions across renewable energy, energy and carbon efficiency).

Stone glass, plastic foam, glass wool and other materials are used in the EIFS industry. As an alternative to EIFS, green insulation is employed, which is likewise environmentally friendly. Furthermore, the availability of hempcrete, a green insulating material, limits the market's expansion. 

COVID-19 Impact on Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a wide range of effects on the global economy, including direct production and demand, supply chain disruption and financial damage. It directly impacted the manufacturers' supply chain worldwide and production facilities have been shut down to reduce the danger of virus transmission. 

The unanticipated worldwide crisis has wreaked havoc on practically every industry, including the Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) business. Governments are pursuing various preventative measures because of the rapid global spread of coronavirus. The enforcement of lockdown and social distancing measures has also damaged the market.

Exterior Insulation and Finish System Market Segmentation Analysis

By type, the global exterior insulation and finish system market is polymer-based (PB) and polymer-modified (PM).

Cost-effectiveness of polymer based to drive its growth

PB EIFS is an outside, non-bearing wall covering that provides a weather-resistant outer wall envelope on walls that are needed to be combustible or noncombustible, fire-resistance-rated or nonfire-resistance-rated. Furthermore, PB EIFS is a system described as being applied over an insulation board, an adhesive or mechanical attachment of the insulation board to a substrate or both, glass fiber reinforcing mesh, a base coat on the face of the insulation board and a textured protective finish coat. 

Polymer Based (PB) dominates the market as it provides high thermal insulation and is cost-effective. In addition, PB EIFS protects the exterior wall by covering it with a protective layer for insulation and weather protection in any color, shape or design. Furthermore, PB is commonly made of closed expanded polystyrene (EPS) and can be adhesively or mechanically to the sheathing. PB EIFS might contain extra layers of base coat and reinforcing mesh to attain stronger impact resistance.

Exterior Insulation and Finish System Market Geographical Analysis

The increasing demand for innovative consumer electronics in Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific dominates the global exterior insulation and finish system market, accounting for the largest market share in 2021. The region has the presence of high-construction countries, which boosts the demand for the EIFS market. China holds the most prominent construction market globally, with the industry projected to grow at an annual average of 5.2% between 2021 and 2029. 

The country has enormous growth in non-residential construction activities. According to the latest China Construction Pipeline Trend Report, China's total hotel construction China's Hotel will have 3,375 projects in 2020. As builders, architects and tradespeople become more aware of the benefits and uses of the quality systems emerging into the market, the role of EIFS in Australia is constantly rising.
