European $33 Bn Fireproof Cladding Markets to 2028: Fiber Cement, Mineral Wool, Calcium Silicate, Aluminum Composites -

September 17, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 17, 2021--

The “Europe Fireproof Cladding Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Material (Fiber Cement, Mineral Wool, Calcium Silicate, Aluminum Composites), by Application, by Country, and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028” report has been added to’s offering.

Europe’s fireproof cladding market size is expected to reach USD 33.98 billion by 2028 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.1%

Increasing awareness regarding the fire safety of residential and commercial buildings across the region is expected to benefit the market growth in Europe.


The market for fireproof cladding in Europe is likely to upscale in the estimated time, supported by initiatives by various countries for the protection of mid- and high-rise residential buildings from fire hazards. For instance, the Ministry of Housing, Communities, and Local Government of the U.K. is planning to provide long-term low-interest schemes for cladding replacement projects for four-to-six-story-high buildings.

The governments in European countries have further strengthened their fire regulatory outlook following the Grenfell Tower fire incident in London in June 2017. The failure of aluminum and polyethylene composites-based claddings was considered a primary reason for the spreading of the fire in the buildings. As a result, governments are emphasizing the usage of fireproof cladding systems, thus fueling the growth of the European market.

The industry is expected to benefit from increased emphasis by companies for the development of fireproof cladding using natural additive-based fiber cement and mineral wool as a substitute for synthetic cladding materials to minimize the VOC emissions during the fabrication process. Moreover, customization options for design and dimensions offered by the players are expected to benefit the market growth.
