Energy saving, environment friendliness, and wide range of applications are the main growth driver for PCM market. It offers applications across building & construction, HVAC, textile, fixed refrigeration, cold chain, thermal energy storage, electronics, and more. Building & construction has the largest PCM market followed by HVAC.

The global PCM market is estimated to grow from $460 million in 2013 to $1,150 million by 2018, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.1% for the same period. Reducing price of PCM and R&D for novel materials will create new opportunities and will drive the market in future.

The organic type of PCM has the maximum market in terms of value due to its high cost while inorganic has the concentrated consumption in terms of volume. Traditionally, inorganic PCM had been used resulting in high volume consumption. Later, usage of organic based PCM with higher melting points, efficiency and microencapsulation led to its widespread usage in various applications. The development of bio-based PCM derived from plant or animal base contributes added advantage of lower flammability and high biodegradability over the organic.
