Industrial Thermal Insulation: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 30, 2010
Global economic recession jolted the industrial thermal insulation market across the countries during 2008 and 2009. Demand for industrial thermal insulation products declined considerably across all material types such as fibrous, cellular, and others in almost all the matured markets including the US, Canada, Japan, and Europe. However, regional markets in Asia-Pacific and Latin America demonstrated positive growth giving some respite to the global industry. Going forwards, the market is likely to recover by 2011 and demonstrate moderate growth in the ensuing years. Intensifying energy prices as well as favorable regulations are expected to bode well for thermal insulation market across the globe. Furthermore, the nascent significance of foams owing to their cost effectiveness and increased applications provide a competitive edge over conventional insulation materials such as mineral wool. In addition, innovations in insulation materials according to altering customer preferences and patterns are likely to fuel growth in the market.
The United States represents the largest regional market for industrial thermal insulation worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Industrial Thermal Insulation. The financial crisis considerably weakened the demand for industrial thermal insulation during 2008 and 2009. Sales of industrial thermal insulation in the US are expected to witness moderate recovery through 2011 and gain momentum from 2012 onwards. The US market is dominated by fibrous insulation materials, which account for about 2/3rd of the total market. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market for industrial thermal insulation. By material type, Fibrous Insulation Materials category constitutes the largest as well as fastest growing segment of industrial thermal insulation market.
Global thermal insulation market is large, multifaceted and comprises a comprehensive range of materials that find major applications in industrial and construction sectors. Energy saving and maintenance of ambience are primary motives of thermal insulation. Industrial thermal insulation covers applications in the petrochemicals, pipe sheathing, power generation, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning) and other industries. A large part of the demand for industrial thermal insulation roots in the developed economies of North America and Western Europe, and the demand for such products is growing at a relatively faster pace in developing countries in Asia Pacific, and Latin America. Energy conservation initiatives across the world potentially direct the market movement in industrialized countries as well as in developing nations. Further, the demand for industrial thermal insulation materials is forecast to be higher in replacement and improvement applications, on account of the growing concern among industrial houses to curtail heating and cooling costs. Even as process plants and other industrial sectors tend to raise the insulation per structure levels, replacements and improvements are projected to drive industrial thermal insulation markets over the forecast period.
