Future Market Insights has released its market report for the Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems industry, according to Nikhil Kaitwade of Market Research Blog. The report includes predictions, trends and information about the EIFS market through 2033.

According to the report, the EIFS market is expected to grow over the next decade due to an increase in construction and infrastructure spending as well as energy efficiency methods.

Future Market Insights conducted a market survey report that showed that EIFS’ aggregate demand in 2022 was $79.8 billion. FMI expects that number to rise to $235.6 billion in 2033 with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 10.2 percent.

EIFS is prevalent in developed nations because it is more accepted and established in the construction industry there. However, EIFS is affordable, widely available and can be used for insulation and exterior finishing, which makes it popular in emerging economies as well.
