Global High Performance Insulation Materials Market - Industry Trends, Outlook, Regulatory Bodies & Regulations and Key Market Players

Insulation or thermal insulation is the process of reducing or increasing heat transfer between two or more objects that are in the range of thermal contact or relative influence. Materials that help in reducing heat gain or loss by offering a barrier within the areas are known as insulation materials. The insulation capability of the materials depends on their thermal conductivity. Materials that provide superior insulation especially in industrial applications are known as high performance insulation materials. Some of the key attributes of high performance insulation materials are superior heat regulation without having a support of air conditioning machine or heater, prevention from moisture damage, and an optimum in-house atmosphere. High performance insulation materials also prevent fire damage. As per claims made at the Chalmers Energy Conference 2013, high performance insulation materials can help reduce energy usage across sectors by 50% by 2050.

Growing awareness regarding greenhouse emissions and rising demand for energy savings are major factors boosting growth of the global high performance insulation materials market. High performance insulation processes are in high demand in the industrial sector, mainly due to its natural ability to regulate temperature. This is a very important attribute, as this helps avoid costs related to artificial thermal regulators such as air conditioners and heaters. Energy usage during insulation processes is minimal, which helps to cut down on associated production costs. However, some of the disadvantages associated with the usage of high performance insulation processes are high set up and maintenance costs and relatively low service life. High performance insulation materials need periodic maintenance, as majority of the materials are made of aerogel and ceramic fiber.
