It comes after Ulster Rugby announced a 10-year deal with the building company for the naming rights to the Belfast venue, which recently reopened after a multi-million pound revamp.
Welcoming the move, Ulster Chief Executive Shane Logan on Thursday said: "We are delighted to have extended our partnership with Kingspan, one of Ulster's most successful international companies, and to have secured a stadium naming rights partner for the first time."
Kingspan, which is based in Co Cavan, has been a sponsor of Ulster Rugby since 1999.
The company said the deal will benefit not just Mark Anscombe's first team, but will boost the sport of rugby at all levels in Northern Ireland.
Pat Freeman from Kingspan said: "We have been a partner of Ulster Rugby for 15 years and have witnessed the tremendous growth of rugby in the province. We have also had extensive input into the redevelopment of the stadium through our high performance technologies.
"We are delighted to significantly extend our already strong association with Ulster Rugby by putting our name to such a wonderful sporting venue and are proud that the home of Ulster Rugby will be now known as Kingspan Stadium."
