Cold Insulation Market by Material (Fiber Glass, Phenolic Foams, Polystyrene Foams, Polyurethane Foams, and Others), by End-Use Industry (Chemicals, HVAC, Oil & Gas, Refrigeration, and Others) - Trends & Forecasts to 2020
The cold insulation market size is projected to reach USD 5.7 billion by 2020.
Cold insulation materials help in the prevention of heat loss or heat gain to conserve energy. These materials have the ability to save environment from harmful effects of greenhouse gases. They are also used to reduce energy leakages from infrastructure to improve energy efficiency. Cold insulation materials are used for temperatures from 15°C to –275°C.
Europe is the leading region for cold insulation market during the forecast period, owing to the climatic conditions of most of the European countries. Strict laws by government on sustainable materials, energy savings guidelines, and greenhouse gas emissions guidelines are also the key factors leading to the growth of cold insulation market in the region. Rapid growth of end-use industries, such as chemicals, oil & gas, HVAC, and refrigeration in the region paves the cold insulation to a far extent.
Oil & gas is the largest end-use industry during the forecast period, followed by refrigeration and chemical segment. Cold insulation materials are used for insulation of storage tanks, where LNG is stored and in the liquefaction plant, where conversion of natural gas into liquid state is undertaken. Liquefaction plants are used to convert natural gas to a liquid state at which it can be transported and converted back to the gas state to be used for various industrial, commercial, and residential applications.
Refrigeration is the second-largest end-use industry of cold insulation market. Refrigeration systems are generally operated at temperatures ranging from 20°F to -50°F, depending upon the refrigerant. With proper insulation of refrigeration systems, energy costs can be reduced by around 50% or more. Cryogenic refrigeration has been witnessed to be a very successful method for refrigerating transport products.
