Rapid urbanization across the globe has led to an upsurge in construction activities on a large scale. In addition, the growing popularity of acoustically sound environments is increasing at a rapid rate. These factors may serve as growth boosters for the soundproof curtains market during the forecast period of 2021-2031. The expanding demand for insulating materials with high R-value may also set the stage for the growth of the soundproof curtains market.
Soundproof curtains are produced using materials such as rock wool, glass wool, natural fibers, and plastic foams. These materials help in reducing the sounds from the external environment. The curtains also consist of layers like decorative fabrics to further reduce sound from the external environment. These curtains are prominently used for soundproofing industrial, residential, or commercial buildings.
Among all the materials, glass wool is the most preferred material for producing soundproof curtains. It has extended acoustic and thermal insulation as compared to other materials. In addition, it offers good handling and great safety. These properties make glass wool a preferred material for manufacturing soundproof curtains.
Due to the emergence of a hectic schedule, many health disorders are frequent among a considerable chunk of the global populace. Insomnia, hearing loss, heart diseases, and stress are some of them.
