Insulation Consumption share, by region, 2022 (%)

Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2022 with revenue share of over 41%. Rapid economic development in the emerging economies in the region is leading to the expansion of the building infrastructure and industrial clusters, thus promoting the usage of insulation materials across various sectors. In addition, workplace safety regulations and environment protection policies by local authorities have mandate the facility operators to use advanced insulation materials to maintain safe working environment.

Industrial Insulation Market Analysis And Forecast

Power generation segment dominated the industrial insulation market in 2022, with a share of over 29%. The demand for insulation materials in the thermal power generation industry to minimize the energy losses is one of the primary reasons driving the industry growth. The use of insulation materials for turbine insulation is also expected to promote the growth of the industry over the forecast period. The market is also expected to rise on account of increasing energy requirements by the economies across the globe. In addition, growing concerns regarding the energy management among the power generation industry across the globe is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

Industrial Insulation Consumption share, by application, 2022 (%)

LNG/LPG segment accounted for the second largest share of the insulation materials market in 2022, with a share of 28%. This is attributed to the demand for natural and petroleum gas across the globe has led to the establishment of an extensive storage and transportation infrastructure for the same. High risk involved in the transportation and storage of the aforementioned products leads to the usage of extensive insulation products by the players in the industry.

Building Thermal Insulation Market Analysis And Forecast

Increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings, owing to the stringent government regulations, and rising awareness regarding environmental degradation, is anticipated to fuel the demand for thermal insulation for residential, non-residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. Favorable government policies coupled with increasing awareness in regions such as Asia Pacific and Central & South America is expected to remain the key driving factor for the growth of the market. World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) and International Energy Agency (IEA) are the key organizations working on green building concept and guiding builders for energy-efficient construction, which is likely to further propel the demand for the thermal insulation. 

Building Thermal Insulation Consumption share, by product, 2022 (%)

EPS exhibit excellent dielectric strength, and resistance to chemicals, heat, and moisture, making it a preferred material for insulation of electric component in building applications. Foamed plastics are expected to witness significant demand for building insulation applications, owing to the energy efficiency regulations imposed by various governments across the globe. In addition, the various advantages provided by the product such as cost effectiveness and resistance to dust & moisture accumulation is expected to boost its demand.

Active Insulation Market Analysis And Forecast

The demand for active insulation solution is growing at a significant pace owing to its inherent property of thermal management to various products like textiles and construction elements. The demand for active insulation products is fueled by consumer preference, product innovation, and increasing market penetration. The products are widely used in the textile industry and most of the demand arises from the active wear and sportswear segments. 

Active Insulation Consumption share, by application, 2022 (%)

The broad variety of fibers are used for manufacturing garment active insulation as no single fiber structure could provide all required properties for high-performance apparel such as activewear and sportswear. Several types of fibers are used for different utilities depending upon application requirements, as the characteristics of fabric are primarily dependent on its base fiber’s properties. The major properties considered while selecting the fiber are fiber type, thickness or weight of the material, weave construction, and presence of chemical treatment.
