Aerogel is a mesoporous solid foam, derived by replacement of the liquid component of the gel with a gas and is composed of an interconnected nanostructure network with minimum 50% porosity. Though solid, its extremely porous, lightweight and low thermal conductivity features make it an ideal insulation material. Aerogel sponge, can be recycled after use, thereby signifying its eco-friendly nature and cost effectiveness. Such features drive its increased usage in many industries, such as oil & gas, aerospace, healthcare, electronics, building insulation and others. High production cost and poor mechanical strength, are likely to hinder the growth of the aerogel market. With advancements and innovations in materials, the world aerogel market is expected to grow rapidly in the near future. However, the adoption of aerogel in newer applications such as apparel, agriculture and power generation, could foster the market growth, during forecast period.

The aerogel market is dominated by silica aerogel, which is used in almost all major applications such as oil & gas, building insulation, automotive, aerospace, electronics and others. However, the report segments the market by raw materials such as carbon, alumina and others. In 2014, silica aerogel, garnered more than three fourth share in the world aerogel market. However, the consumption of carbon aerogel is estimated to be the highest during the forecast period, owing to growing application of carbon aerogel in electronics, semiconductor and super capacitors applications. Moreover, graphene (carbon based) aerogel, could be the ideal raw material for oil absorption application, owing to its extremely low density and hydrophilic attributes.

Aerogel market has been segmented by form into blanket, particle/powder, blocks and panel. In 2014, blanket aerogel captured more than 70% share in the total aerogel market, owing to its wide usage in oil & gas, pharmaceuticals and other industries. Based on application, the world aerogel market is segmented into building insulation, oil & gas, aerospace, automotive, health care, chemical, electronics, apparel and others. In 2014, oil & gas application garnered the highest revenue of $157.8 million in the aerogel market and would experience a substantial market growth in the near future. Building insulation application would be one of the fastest growing application segment at a CAGR of 35% during the forecast period. Growing awareness of global warming leads to increased usage of aerogel panel in the newly constructed buildings of developed regions such as Europe and North America.

In terms of geography, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe Asia-Pacific & LAMEA. In 2014, the consumption of aerogel in North America, was the highest owing to increasing demand of aerogel for oil & gas and construction applications in this region. However, Europe would be the fastest growing region, accounting for the highest CAGR of 34.7% in the in world aerogel market.

A new report titled, “World Aerogel Market—Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014–2021,” projects that the global sales of aerogel is expected to reach $1,926.6 million by 2021. Silica aerogel is expected to generate around three-fourths of the overall market revenue by 2021. The European aerogel market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 34.2% during the forecast period.

Aerogel is a porous, dry solid material that exhibits a wide array of properties, such as low density, low thermal conductivity, and light weight. The primary attributes of aerogel, such as reusability, recyclability, high durability, and thermal resistance, have fostered its adoption across numerous end-user industries such as oil & gas, automotive, aerospace, electronics, and others. However, mass adoption of aerogel is strictly limited to these industries, owing to its relatively high pricing. However, application areas of aerogel are likely to be diversified with the advent of various cost-efficient manufacturing techniques. Supporting government policies related to green infrastructure in the European and Middle Eastern countries would promote the adoption of aerogel in the building insulation application segment.

Silica aerogel is the most widely consumed raw material owing to its efficiency and lightweight. The carbon aerogel segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 35.6% during the forecast period on account of its increasing applications across electronics, semiconductor, and supercapacitor industries. In addition, rising adoption of graphene (carbon based) aerogel in oil absorption and energy storage applications would further boost the growth of carbon aerogel segment during the forecast period.

In 2014, blanket aerogel was the most widely used aerogel in the market, accounting for about 71% share of the market. The other aerogels available in the market are particle, panel, and block aerogel. In 2014, oil & gas was the major revenue-generating segment in terms of application, garnering about three-fourths share of the overall market revenue. Building insulation is one of the fastest growing application segment, owing to increasing implementation of green infrastructure policies, worldwide, especially in Europe, North America, and Middle East.

Key findings of the study:

- Electronics application segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 36.9% from 2015 to 2021.
- Oil & gas segment is expected to maintain its dominance in the application segment during the forecast period.
- Aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and chemical industries jointly accounted for around one-fifths share of the overall market revenue in 2014.
- Particle/powdered aerogel is likely to exhibit the highest growth during the analysis period.
- In 2014, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA collectively accounted for around 40% share of the market.
- In 2014, North America accounted for more than 40% share of the global market, owing to the increasing demand for aerogels in oil & gas industries based in the United States and Canada. However, Europe is expected to be the fastest growing region in the world aerogel market owing to stringent government regulations of the European Union which has further facilitated the implementation of green infrastructure.

The prominent players profiled in this report include Aspen Aerogels, Inc., American Aerogel Corporation, Cabot Corporation, Dow Corning Corp., Svenska Aerogel AB, BASF SE, Airglass AB, JIOS Aerogel, Active Space Technologies, and Acoustiblok UK Ltd., and others.
