Predominantly used in the construction industry, the thermal insulation process is widely used in a number of industrial verticals, including automotive, energy, oil and gas, and food processing. The global thermal insulation material market is projected to maintain stable growth over the next four years. During the four-year forecast period 2016-2020, the global market for thermal insulation is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.1%, accounting for US$ 53,286.8 Mn by 2020 end.

Market Dynamics

The critical importance of thermal insulation for safeguarding the performance of various industrial systems, will remain the key factor driving the demand for high-temperature insulation materials globally. Energy-efficient thermal insulators are likely to gather higher traction in the next few years. Moreover, a host of verticals use thermal insulation as one the most vital processes in manufacturing. Increasing consumption of thermal insulation materials, including petrochemical, oil and gas, energy, and food and beverages, will continue to accelerate the market growth over the forecast period.

Rising production of automobiles and aircrafts will positively influence market growth. Rising demand from industrial refrigeration sector and hefty consumption by heavy duty vehicles sector for insulation coatings, are identified to generate an impressively high demand. Depleting energy resources, followed by critical need for energy conservation, is expected to primarily drive the demand for thermal insulation globally. Rising inclination toward reduced energy spend and increased awareness about environmental impact of conventional manufacturing processes, will fuel the demand for thermal insulation materials over the next few years.

Adoption of advanced insulation materials by a number of manufacturers is another key factor predicted to escalate the demand. In addition, technological advancements in high-temperature insulation wool, coupled with emergence of bio-based insulators are likely to present attractive growth opportunities during the forecast period. Strict governmental norms regarding energy-efficiency will benefit the market growth. Governments are streamlining processes for maximum industrial output, propelling the demand for thermal insulation materials that enable manufacturers to consume minimum energy and attain maximum product yield. Increased emphasis on green energy in order to curb pollution will hold a strong positive impact on sales of thermal insulation materials. Industrial and commercial construction vertical will favor market. Introduction of a few promising technologies, such as nano-insulation and vacuum insulation is expected to create a host of opportunities in near future.

A few macroeconomic factors influencing the growth of market are growing urbanization rate, and exploding output from construction and manufacturing sectors. While developed regions already have efficient building norms, thermal insulation technology has considerable penetration in those markets. Several emerging regional governments are increasingly promoting thermal insulation to comply with energy conservation standards. These are the major underlying drivers fueling the market for thermal insulation material over 2016-2020.
