ADO participates in the growing $8+ billion U.S. insulation market. Within the U.S. insulation market, ADO maintains a #1 market position in attic insulation vents and enjoys an emerging presence in other insulation accessory categories. Continued demand for ADO’s products will be driven by (i) growing U.S. insulation market, (ii) long-term projected growth and positive new housing construction trends, (iii) favorable regulatory environment for energy efficiency resulting in increased insulation spend, and (iv) balanced mix of repair/replacement demand for insulation accessories.
