The aerogel market is projected to register a CAGR of 19.1% between 2014 and 2019, in terms of volume.
Aerogel is an open-celled solid consisting of nanostructures which are interconnected to form a network-like structure. Aerogel was first developed in the 1930's and used as better alternative to traditional insulation materials. Aerogel display an outstanding array of unique properties, such as high strength to weight ratio, high thermal resistance, flame & moisture retardant, low density, high surface area, nanoporous structure, and weather resistance among others.
The aerogel market by type can be classified into three key segments, on the basis of type silica, polymer, carbon, and other aerogel that include metal & metal oxides among others. Polymer aerogel is the fastest-growing type as it was non-existent in terms of production in 2012 and at present several companies are conducting extensive research activities to develop polymer based aerogel materials for mass production.
The aerogel market is also segmented by form and processing. The aerogel market can be classified into four key segments, on the basis of form- blanket, panel, particle, and monolith. Blanket is the largest aerogel segment by form mainly attributed to its increasing use in the oil & gas and construction segment. Particle is estimated to be the fastest growing aerogel form owing to its growing applications in construction, performance coating, and cosmetics & personal care segment.
The aerogel market can be classified into two key segments, on the basis of processing- virgin aerogel (consisting of as manufactured aerogel materials) and fabricated aerogel (consisting of composites and additives). As manufactured (virgin) aerogel is the largest market of aerogel due to its wide commercial availability and extensive use in R&D activities.
North America dominated the aerogel market followed by Asia-Pacific majorly due to the increasing demand for oil & gas and construction application in these regions. Europe is projected to witness high growth rate between 2014 and 2019. The aerogel market in Europe and North America is consolidated, whereas the market in Asia-Pacific has a fragmented structure, where China and South Korea have many small and upcoming aerogel manufacturers
