Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/21/2018 -- Aerogel Market – Market Overview
Aerogel is porous and solid in nature known as frozen smoke, solid air, or solid cloud. Owing superior thermal resistance, lightweight and low conductivity of aerogel, this material is used in various applications. Aerogel is easily replacing thermal insulation material, providing strong cost competitiveness among the high-performance insulation materials, thereby, expected to drive the market.
Aerogel is available in silica, polymer and carbon type. The Silica Aerogel is leading segment owing to high demand of silica in oil& gas and transportation industry. This material imparts thermal resistance and are bio compatibility with final product, giving an optimised performance. Thus, ease of application of silica gel is anticipated to drive over the assessment period. Moreover, silica has successful used at extreme temperature such as Mars planet which tends to rise in demand in coming years owing to rising exploration projects by NASA. The shifting trend of silica towards polymer owing to high mechanical strength of polymer leading to increasing demand in packaging and construction sector is projected to drive the market growth.
According to form of Silica Gel, blanket segment is holding considerable number of shares in global aerogel market. Increasing market penetration of blanket form of aerogel in refineries, pipelines, and other construction material is further providing opportunity to market players. The product is highly water repellent and owns thermal degradation which is utilized for subsea thermal insulation and oil spell cleaning. Moreover, increasing demand of green or eco friendly products is likely to open new opportunity among market players. For instance, environmental carbon products are produced by Green Earth Aerogel Technologies based on agriculture waste. The market participants are investing more into development of new products with advanced technology based on regulatory norms.
