By Material Type Analysis

  • Cold-Flexible Insulation segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The cold-flexible insulation segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by its energy efficiency and temperature resistance ability. Flexible insulation systems protect users from heat in the summer and cold in the winter, ensuring safety and creating a pleasant atmosphere in their buildings. These insulation systems are made up of various materials, including flexible foam, elastomers, and others, which can withstand lower temperatures and promote flexibility. These factors are collectively contributing to the growth of the market.

By Application Analysis

  • Industrial Process segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

Industrial process segment held the largest share. The ability to provide protection from extreme temperatures, corrosion, & fire is driving its importance in industrial activities, primarily pumps and ductwork insulation, tanks, and vessels, and more in oil and gas exploration activities. Furthermore, its cold flexible insulation system is driving the demand for cold storage and chilled water systems by consumers in the summer.

The HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) segment will grow at rapid pace, on account of the rapid increase in demand for stable temperatures in households, driven by the presence of extreme temperatures more often due to global warming.

By End Use Industry Analysis

  • Transportation segment held the significant market revenue share in 2023

The transportation segment held largest share in revenue share, this is due to the rising safety concerns at the transportation of goods and people from one place to another. In various transports, including automotive, marine, aircraft, and railways, insulation is integrated with its propensity to promote energy efficiency, fire protection, and thermal insulation in containers to protect the goods from unforeseen circumstances.

Regional Insights

  • Asia Pacific region registered the largest share of the global market in 2023

The growth of the regional market can be influenced by the rising demand for power owing to the growing population. According to the International Energy Agency, the Republic of China, India, and South Asia are expected to witness 70% of the global rise in electricity demand during 2023–2025. This trend is expected to propel the need for the adoption of solar, nuclear, wind, and hydropower, facilitating the demand for technical insulation driven by its potential to maintain a stable temperature in industrial and workplace settings.

The Europe region is expected to be the fastest growing region with a healthy CAGR during the projected period, owing to the growing consumption of air conditioners and other household equipment. Since the last century, Europeans have been increasing their consumption of air conditioners due to the rising temperatures. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), 130 million air conditioning units are expected to be installed by 2023, and the number of units is projected to quadruple by 2050. The rising adoption of HVAC systems in southern countries of the continent is likely to stimulate the demand for technical insulation, leading to faster growth of the technical insulation market in Europe.
