[PDF] Thermal Insulation Materials Market: Big Changes To Have Big Impact- Coherent Market Insights

Thermal insulation materials are used to restrict the flow of heat energy from two ends of different temperatures. Usually, heat flows from high temperature to low temperature. Thermal insulation material offers insulation in which the radiative heat is reflected heat is reduced than being absorbed. Some of the common thermal insulation materials are fiberglass, stone wool, and plastic foam. These materials find application across buildings, clothing, mechanical systems, natural animal insulation, spacecraft, and automotive. Fiberglass material used for industrial applications is covered with aluminum cladding material. In the construction industry, it helps in enhancing the duration of thermal comfort without depending on mechanical air-conditioning particularly during inter-seasons periods.

The global thermal insulation materials market is projected to reach US$ 70 billion by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2019 to 2027).

Market Restraints

High capital cost of insulation materials is expected to hinder the demand for thermal insulation material in residential buildings and this is projected to hamper the market growth. The use of thermal insulation material in buildings saves a significant amount of energy in the form of electricity. However, due to the high capital cost of these materials, not all the owners opt for thermal insulation material and this is restricting the market growth.

Market Opportunities

Growth in smart city projects is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunity to the market of thermal insulation materials.  Increasing infrastructure development initiatives in developing as well as developed economies are projected to foster the demand for thermal insulation products. Also, an increasing number of energy-efficient buildings across the developed region is accelerating market growth.

Growing investment Asian region especially in Japan & China by key players in the thermal insulation material market is expected to propel the growth of thermal insulation materials over the forecast timeframe. For instance, in 2015, it started a new production line in China for Duranol polycarbonatediol (PCD), which is used to make high-performance polyurethanes. Thus, such investment is expected to fuel market growth.

Market Trends

The growing focus of manufacturers on reducing thickness of material in order to enhance the performance of the material is expected to accelerate the market growth. Low thickness materials provide superior benefits in material handling and also improve the load-bearing capacity of the infrastructure. Hence of the use of low thickness material enable the manufacturing of efficient building structure, this is raising the demand for low-thickness material, in turn, propelling the market growth.

On the basis of material type, in 2018, fiber glass accounted the largest market share of 42% in terms of revenue in the global thermal insulation materials market, followed by plastic foam and stone wool, respectively.
