A number of top players are spending on intensive research activities for developing cost-efficient core materials for vacuum insulation panels, with an aim to meet a variety of needs of end-use industries, observes TMR. Several players are also focused on developing high-performance temperature controlled packaging solutions, in order to gain a firm foothold in the market. Leading players are harping on product innovations to stay ahead of others.

The global vacuum insulation panels market is projected to rise at a moderate CAGR of 5.3% from 2017 to 2026. The market is estimated to reach a worth exceeding US$9 billion by the end of 2026.

The key core type of materials used in vacuum insulation panels are categorized into silica, fiberglass, and others. Of all the types, the use of silica in making panels has been substantially high. The segment is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 4.2 billion by the end of the assessment period. The extensive adoption of silica as core material for robust insulation in the building and construction industry is attributed to its several attractive, unique characteristics such as non-toxicity and non-combustibility.

Geographically, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), is set to be potentially attractive market for vacuum insulation panels. Vis-à-vis sales revenue, the regional market leads during the forecast period. The growth is led by key economies such as Australia, China, and India in which the pharmaceutical, construction, logistics, and refrigeration industries are witnessing widespread uptake. The APEJ market will reach a worth of US$3 billion by 2026 end.
