Growing Usage in Oil & gas Industry
High performance insulation materials are expected to witness a huge demand from the oil & gas sector. This is primarily owing to the growing demand for advanced insulation materials for subsea pipelines applications. Additionally, these materials offers properties, such as fire & water resistance, superlative thermal resistance, enhanced acoustic insulation, lightweight, and reduced thickness, that are required in the oil & gas sector. Thus, owing to the abovementioned factors, the demand for and usage of high-performance insulation materials is expected to increase in the oil & gas industry, owing to continually increasing offshore oil drilling and recovery.
Aerogel Dominates the Market
Aerogel is expected to dominate the market in material type segment. This is primarily due to properties, such as lightweight, tensile strength, thermal insulation, superior fire resistance, easy installation, high compressive strength, and low density. Due to these offerings, aerogel is highly preferred in industrial sector and applications, and is also expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is the Dominating Region
Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market for high performance insulation materials during the forecast period. The growth in the oil & gas and the construction sector in the region have significantly boosted the demand for such insulation panels. With the rising investments in the construction sector of emerging economies, including China, India, and Indonesia, is expected to further augment the growth of high performance insulation materials during the forecast period.
