BOSTON, December 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
IDTechEx Research, a leading provider of independent market research, business intelligence and events on emerging technology announces the availability of a new report, Aerogels 2017-2027: Technologies, Markets and Players.
IDTechEx research analysis has shown that the aerogel industry, which is almost a century in the making, is finally coming of age. Major players are finding more nascent applications and new entries are progressing out of semi-commercial prototypes and into full market launches. IDTechEx have released their latest analysis of this diversifying and expanding industry in this brand new report.
Aerogel products are a class of highly porous lightweight materials made up of an interconnected nanostructural network. Although known since the 1930s, the aerogel industry has only progressed out of its infancy in the past decade, this comes in the wake of previous failed attempts from the closing decades of the 20th century.
This report provides the most comprehensive and authoritative view of the global aerogel market, giving a detailed ten-year market forecasts segmented by application and both material type and form, including full company profiles based on IDTechEx's interview-based primary research. The research within this report values the market at present at just over $260 million and anticipates it to marginally exceed $1 billion by 2027 for the aerogel manufacturers. Pricing forecasts are provided for all different types and are predicted to undergo significant shifts as increased capacities and emerging manufacturing processes are anticipated.
Aerogels 2017-2027: Technologies, Markets and Players extensively compares and discusses batch and continuous manufacturing processes for both supercritical and ambient pressure drying techniques. This is with consideration to both established methods as well as emerging spin-out companies and university research. Many companies have nailed their colours to the mast developing the infrastructure, expertise and IP portfolio around specific techniques, but which will prove to be sustainable and ultimately the most competitive will be a key growth factor for this industry.
