Phase Change Material (PCM) Market by Type (Organic, Inorganic, Bio-based), Application (Building & Construction, HVAC, Cold Chain & Packaging, Thermal Energy Storage, Textile, Electronics), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Stringent regulations regarding reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to drive the advanced Phase Change Material (PCM) market”
The market size of advanced PCM was USD 235.3 million in 2016, which is projected to reach USD 638.7 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 17.66% from 2017 to 2022. The advanced PCM market is largely driven by the presence of stringent regulations regarding reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in regions such as Europe and North America. In addition, the growth in green buildings, accompanied by the growing cold chain & packaging application drive the demand for advanced PCM, globally. The flammable and corrosive nature of advanced PCMs acts as a restraint for the market. The lack of awareness about the use of advanced PCM is another restraint for the market.
“Bio-based PCM is estimated to be fastest-growing PCM type segment, in terms of volume, from 2017 to 2022”
The bio-based PCM segment is estimated to witness the highest growth, in terms of volume, from 2017 to 2022. The non-corrosive and non-toxic nature, chemical stability, and greater fire resistance drive the demand for bio-based PCM, globally. Its usage in applications such as building & construction, textiles, HVAC and electronics also boosts its demand globally.
“North America estimated to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period in terms of both value and volume”
The growing retrofit market, booming construction industry, development of green buildings, increasing energy efficiency codes, and building specifications are estimated to drive the advanced PCM market in the North American region. The presence of major manufacturers of advanced PCM in the region also drives the demand for advanced PCM. The major manufacturers include Honeywell Electronics Materials LLC (US), Entropy Solutions LLC (US), Microtek Laboratories Inc. (US), Phase Change Energy Solutions Inc.
