OEM Insulation Materials Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

The term OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, which refers to an organization that manufactures a part or a subsystem that is used by another company product. An insulating product is one that minimizes heat gain or loss by creating a blockage between the surfaces that are different in temperature. There are various types of insulation available in the market such as sprayed form, structural insulated panels, concrete, foam boards, reflective and fiber insulation. The major sector where OEM insulations are used is the industrial sector. The growing demand for insulation services in wide scope of applications in industrial as well as commercial sector has fuelled market growth OEM insulation across the world. The major end-user industries of OEM insulation are automotive, construction, aerospace, and consumer appliances among others.

The use of OEM insulation in commercial and residential buildings reduces the energy cost by around 10% to 20%. The various materials used for the purpose of insulation are fiber glass, foamed plastics and mineral wool such as glass wool and stone wool. The most common type of material used for insulation in construction industry is glass mineral wool. The automobile manufacturers are currently focused on enhancing the comfort and safety in vehicles and insulation of automotive parts plays a major role in achieving this goal. Effective insulation helps in reducing heat transfer, sound transfer and fire risk in whichever application it is used.
