Description


Aerogels are one of the most advanced lightweight composite materials that contain more than 95% air and silica or any other material particles suspended in intricate three dimensional porous structure. Aerogels are gels, wherein the liquid phase is replaced by air by keeping the solid phase undamaged. Aerogels were first synthesized in 1931 by Samuel Kistler. However, high cost associated with the production of aerogels resulted in slow commercialization of aerogels. Thus, usage of aerogels was restricted to high-end applications. Aerogels exhibit low density, porous structure, and low thermal conductivity. This makes them suitable for usage in various applications that require light weight and low thermal conductivity such as insulation in petrochemical, construction, and aerospace industries. Expansion in the insulation industry has propelled the usage of aerogels in various end-user industries. The large array of properties make aerogels most suitable in applications that require light weight and low thermal conductivity. Rising demand for aerogels in oil & gas and construction industries is likely to drive the aerogels market in the next few years. However, availability of various low-cost substitutes and high cost associated with the production of aerogels are projected to hamper market growth during the forecast period. High demand in the transportation industry is expected to act as a major opportunity for aerogels in the next few years.

Free Market Analysis


Aerogels are synthetic porous materials that are manufactured using materials such as silica, metal oxide, carbon, and others. Extremely light in weight, these are primarily used as insulating materials in various end-user industries owing to their low thermal conductivity. Aerogels were first synthesized in 1931; however, the high cost of manufacturing and complex manufacturing process have limited the usage of aerogels to high cost applications. Aerogels are typically dry solid materials with fragile structure. Aerogels usually comprise 98% air and lack any solid material. Thus, these materials are extremely light in weight. Aerogels are primarily employed in end-user industries such as construction, oil & gas, transportation, electronics, pharmaceutical, agriculture, and others. Increasing demand for insulating materials in these industries in developed regions is expected to boost the demand for aerogels during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, silica aerogels dominated the market, followed by metal oxide and carbon aerogel, in 2014. The dominance of silica aerogels is anticipated to continue over the next few years, considering the extensive level of research on silica aerogels and cost of manufacturing associated with other aerogels on a commercial scale. Silica aerogels is likely to be used extensively in various end-user industries such as construction, oil & gas, transportation and others. Polymer-based aerogels is estimated to be the fastest growing market segment, followed by carbon aerogels, during the forecast period. Extensive research in metal aerogels is expected to add to the array of product segments of aerogels.

Oil & gas was the largest end-user segment of the aerogels market, accounting for over 60% share in terms of demand in 2014. Aerogels are used as insulating materials in various applications in the oil & gas industry. The construction segment is also expected to be a major consumer of aerogels in the next few years. Transportation is anticipated to be the fastest-growing end-user segment of the aerogels market between 2015 and 2023. Rising demand for light weight insulating materials in various end-user industries is anticipated to propel the demand for aerogels during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, North America held the largest share of the global aerogels market in 2014. The region constituted more than 55% share of the global aerogels market in 2014. Easy availability of raw materials, high growth in the insulation industry, and technological availability for the production of aerogels have boosted the aerogels market in the region. Europe is likely to be the fastest-growing regional market for aerogels during the forecast period. Increasing demand for residential and nonresidential insulation in construction industry and rising oil & gas exploration activities in developed countries in Europe are projected to drive the demand for aerogels in the region in the next few years. The aerogels market is anticipated to witness similar growth trend in developing regions; however, growth is expected to be marginally lower in this decade owing to the high price and unavailability of technological expertise associated with aerogels. Overall, the global market for aerogels is projected to expand significantly in the next eight years.
 
The global aerogels market is primarily driven by demand for insulating materials in oil & gas and construction industries. However, the availability of low-cost substitutes in various end-user industries coupled with manufacturing complexities is estimated to hamper market growth. Increase in commercialization and high demand for aerogels in the transportation industry are likely to act as opportunities for the aerogels market in the next eight years. The market for aerogels is significantly consolidated, with limited number of large players operating in developed regions. Key players in the aerogels market are Cabot Corporation, Aspen Aerogels, Inc., Aerogel Technologies, LLC, JIOS Aerogel Limited, Surnano Aerogel Co., Ltd, Svenska Aerogel AB, Green Earth Aerogel Technologies, BASF SE, Guangdong Alison Hi-Tech Co., Ltd. and Ocellus, Inc.
