Executive Summary

Insulation is defined as a complete barrier or shield that prevents the transfer of heat through floors, ceilings, and walls by trapping it into small cavities. These small cavities regulate indoor temperature, create a healthier and comfortable living environment and save energy. Also, smaller cavities in insulation material perform better than larger cavities and can lead to an effective thermal barrier. Insulation materials achieve their effectiveness through density, low thermal conductivity, the thickness of insulation, thermal bridging and surface emissivity. These properties enhance the functioning and performance of insulating materials. The high-performance insulation material usually depends on the raw material type that is used, and the manufacturing process that takes place along with the skilled labor force.

Thermal and acoustic insulation is the largest segment of the high-performance insulation market. Industrial thermal insulation leads the market followed by thermal insulation for residential buildings and thermal insulation for commercial buildings.

In the current market, industrial, residential and commercial builders face myriad options for improving building energy efficiency that includes high-performance insulation, energy-efficient equipment, and a growing cadre of smart systems and controls. When seeking green building certification or simply higher energy efficiency construction, cost-effectiveness and multiple benefits become critical factors in selecting energy-efficient, green technologies. High-performance insulation includes a group of rapidly growing multi-benefit residential and commercial building technologies designed to improve insulation capacity while advancing building strength.

High-performance insulation materials also can provide other important benefits, including reduced installation costs, exceptionally fast framing, reduced weight, disaster resistance, and reduced sound penetration, which provides an opportunity for growth, development and increased market penetration. Some technologies like insulated concrete blocks/masonry units offer the advantage as nearly drop-in replacements for existing building technologies. This greatly lowers risk and limits the need for extensive worker training and expertise. In contrast, SIPs and especially ICFs require skilled, experienced installers to ensure proper application. Many regions are approaching a critical mass of such skilled labor requirement, which is slowing market development.

Aerogel is a type of raw material used to manufacture insulation materials which are a thousand times less dense than glass and are environmentally friendly. High-performance insulation materials deliver forty times more insulation than the fiberglass and can be used at temperatures between -200°C and 650°C.

Aerogels are ultra-light, low-density and nano-porous materials. In the past decade, they have generated significant interest in their use in high-performance applications. Although originally produced as silica monoliths, aerogel technology has evolved, and current aerogels are commercially available in a variety of materials, shapes, and sizes to meet the requirements of a broader number of applications.
