The Global High Temperature Insulation Market is expected to gain traction owing to simultaneous growth in manufacturing and industrial production sector.
High temperature insulation material prevents transfer of heat at extremely high temperatures while protecting adjacent materials from heat damage. High temperature insulation materials offer low thermal conductivity, high heat capacity, surface emissivity, and thermal bridging. Some high temperature insulation materials include calcium silicate, ceramic fiber, insulating firebrick, and others. Calcium silicate is non-fibrous, and most commonly used as backup insulation. Ceramic fiber offers features such as high resistance to thermal shock, low thermal conductivity and low heat storage, making it an efficient insulator.
The major driving factors of the high temperature insulation market include increasing need to save energy, improve performance, and reduce operation costs. Growth in manufacturing and industrial sectors has increased the demand of high thermal insulation material over the years. There has been an increase in demand from industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive & transportation, and industrial, thereby supporting market growth. There has been significant growth in manufacturing and construction industries owing to favorable government regulations and initiatives such as subsidies and incentives and increasing foreign investments. Expansion of established companies into emerging economies and technological advancements in nanotechnology based thermal insulation would provide numerous growth opportunities in the market.
The global high temperature insulation market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography.
Geographically, the global high temperature insulation market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
