Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Aerogel MarketThe global aerogel market size was estimated at USD 538.14 million in 2016 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 22.6% during the forecast period. Factors such as efficient thermal resistance and lighter and thinner alternatives to conventional insulations are major growth drivers for the market. Industries such as oil and gas, building and construction, automotive, and aerospace and marine are prominent end users. Increasing demand for improved thermal insulation is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The building and construction industry is expected to be one of the key end-use segments in the market, especially with the recovery of several markets in developed regions. Buildings consume a large amount of energy; for instance, 16.6% of the overall energy in U.S. is utilized in heating and cooling of buildings. Aerogel is used in buildings for super-insulating windows, skylights, solar collector covers, and specialty windows. Continuous changes in the environmental landscape and stringent regulations have resulted in increased focus on and rising demand for insulated systems in industrial applications. Fabrication, construction, and operation of pipelines and other systems require a versatile insulation material that can provide best thermal insulation. Compared to traditional insulation materials such as polyurethane foam, mineral wool, perlite, and cellular glass, this product offers much higher thermal efficiency with the same thickness. Researchers are continuously engaged in finding low-cost and thinner alternatives for insulation. The weight of insulation material reduces with reduction in thickness. In the building and construction industry, thinner insulation materials offer benefits such as additional floor area and increased loading capacity. Some regulatory bodies have also laid down regulations for commercial buildings. The U.K. government’s “Building Regulations Part L2A 2013”, which came into effect in April 2014, has imposed 12% reduction in carbon emissions. Buildings in Wales and Scotland that are constructed after October 1, 2015 require an aggregate uplift of 43%. This has created a high demand for thinner materials as thicker variants will result in loss of floor space.

Key Players, Recent Developments & Regional Insights: Global Aerogel MarketPhenolics, polyureas, polyurethanes, polyimides, and polyamides are the major polymers used in the production process. Polymers are known to reduce product prices to a large extent, which may result in new opportunities for various applications. Companies such as Svenska Aerogel are working to develop new technologies to significantly reduce aerogel prices. Carbon products are considered as the lightest materials and are electrically conductive. The product is expected to be an ideal material for pollution control, water purification, and air purification. Players in the market are continuously trying to explore new application areas, which in turn, is resulting in segment growth. Technology Insights Supercritical drying is a process based on pressurizing and heating liquid solvent to its critical point. At this temperature, the supercritical fluid can be easily removed from the material pores by depressurizing the fluid in isothermal conditions. This can be done in two ways: by venting the solvent from supercritical stage or through solvent exchange with a second solvent. Supercritical drying is widely used in the production of silica aerogels, thereby, supplementing demand. Supercritical drying can be performed at low as well as high temperatures. Drying at high temperatures is the traditional way and is most commonly utilized in the industry. The material dried through high temperature possesses highly hydrophobic behavior owing to high critical temperature of various organic solvents used in sol gel chemistry.
Regional InsightsAerogel blankets form a key segment in the North America market. Blankets are used in end-use applications such as building and construction, apparel, and industrial insulation. Favorable properties of this product include water repellence, which adds to its demand in these end-use markets. In residential and commercial buildings, aerogel insulation panels are used for daylighting and cavity-filling applications. Europe, the second-largest regional segment, accounted for a share of 17.4% in the global market in 2016, driven primarily by the building and construction industry. Aerogel Market Share Insights Major companies in the global market include Aspen Aerogels, Inc.; Cabot Corporation; Aerogel Technologies LLC; Nano High-Tech Co., Ltd.; Active Aerogels; Dow Corning Corporation; BASF SE; and American Aerogel Corporation. Aspen Aerogels and Cabot Corporation hold significant shares in the global arena on account of their patented technologies. U.S.-based Aspen Aerogels, Inc. is engaged in development and manufacturing of thermal management solutions for the insulation market. In October 2015, it announced the expansion of its production facility at Rhode Island, U.S. The new facility was designed to significantly increase the company’s production capacity.
