Polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foam segment accounted for largest share in 2022

Polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foam segment accounted for major global market share in 2022, and is likely to retain its market position throughout the anticipated period. The widespread use of this kind of material in numerous pipe insulation applications due to its ability to restrict the absorption of water, gas, and air along with the increasing prevalence of materials globally, as it offers excellent dimensional stability over wide temperature range, are among the key factors propelling the segment market growth.

The cellular glass segment is expected to grow at significant growth rate during the forecast period, which is highly attributable to its growing prevalence & its application across varied verticals such as processing systems, ductwork, commercial pipe-work, storage tanks, and fluid systems, because its exhibits consistent insulating efficiency, fire protection, high compressive strength, and low vapor permeability. Moreover, the elastomeric foam insulation is further projected to gain huge traction and demand over the coming years, on account of its wide range of beneficial properties including moisture retention and strong water vapor permeability along with the upsurge in the penetration worldwide due to rising environmental concerns regarding the reduction in carbon emissions.

District energy systems is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

The district energy systems segment is anticipated to grow at a highest CAGR over the projected period, which is mainly driven high adoption of these systems across the globe as a highly effective solution to connect thermal storage, power grids, waste heat, heat pumps, and renewables. These systems use pre-insulated pipes for efficient and rapid distribution of generated streams and supply steam for cooling building spaces. Apart from this, insulated piping systems are the key components of district heating systems, especially that are made up of eco-friendly materials, which in turn, fueling the demand for pipe insulation at significant pace.

The industrial segment led the industry market with highest revenue share in 2022, which is largely attributed to continuous escalation in the need and demand for several piping systems in industries like petrochemical, power generation, oil & gas, chemical, and wastewater treatment to provide enhanced and improved safety, mainly in onshore activities. Rapid rise in the global population and increasing rate of urbanization especially in the emerging economies like India, China, and Indonesia, that is resulting in drastic increase and growth in the building and growth applications. Hence, the growth of the construction sector and various stricter energy-efficiency norms, are also positively influencing the growth of the segment market.
