Research Proves Radiant Barrier Market Is Growing

Persistence Market Research (PMR), a third-party research firm based in New York City, has shared its research on the radiant barrier market. PMR hosts a research model with collaboration of data analytics and market research methodology to help businesses achieve optimal performance.

In addition to a brief overview of how radiant barriers work, what materials are used and their various applications, the report also states, “The global radiant barrier market is anticipated to be driven by many factors, out of which the main factor being global warming. The product is finding acceptance as people use radiant barriers in their homes and buildings so that the heat is prevented from coming inside, making the place comparatively cooler. Radiant barriers are most effective in blocking summer radiant heat gain thus, saving air-cooling costs of the desired space. Also, use of radiant barrier has been helpful for the builders in getting accreditation for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), which is a mandatory norm for design of buildings – in both residential and commercial segments, thus resulting in increase of demand of the product.”
