Increasing demand from the construction and automotive industries for temperature control and energy efficiency is expected to fuel the demand for thermal insulation material. According to a new study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the market for thermal insulation material is set to rise steadily with a CAGR of over 4% through the end of the projection period in 2031.
The global demand for thermal insulation materials has rapidly gained traction owing to concerns associated with energy conservation. Strict government regulations associated with emissions from construction and automotive sector operations will drive long-term demand. In building operations, thermal insulation also provides benefits in supporting auxiliary building structures including roofs and flooring.
Niche applications in aerospace structures in addition to investments into smart city infrastructure are providing impetus to investments into product research & development, with a focus on material and design. End-user specific customization of product offerings on the basis of density, thermal conductivity, thickness and more will influence developments in the market for the foreseeable future.
The growing demand for thermal insulation materials, particularly from emerging economies will offer key growth opportunities. On the other hand, the volatility in the pricing of raw material will challenge the growth of market participants. Market vendors are more likely to focus on the growth prospects in the fast-growing segments, while consolidating their positions in relatively slower-moving products.
