Advanced phase change material (PCM) are products that store and release thermal energy in the form of latent heat upon changing from one phase to another (that is melting or freezing). Due to such properties, PCM are used in a wide array of applications.

The global demand for advanced PCM is projected to reach $1,472 million by 2019. The growth will be driven by the increasing demand for advanced PCM for building & construction, HVAC, cold chain, thermal energy storage (TES), shipping, packaging & transportation, textiles, and electronics, among others. The European region remains the largest market for advanced PCM, followed by the Americas. The Asia-Pacific market is projected to have a good growth on account of the demand for higher energy efficiency and energy saving devices in the region.

Building & construction is the major application for the advanced PCM market. It accounted for20% of the market share in terms of volume, in 2013. Shipping, packaging & transportation, textiles, and electronic applications of advanced PCM are projected to experience high growth among the applications between 2014 and 2019.

The global advanced PCM industry is witnessing high growth on account of increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing concerns over environmental regulations on reduction of green house gas emissions. PCM is used in various applications such as building and construction, cold chain, HVAC (heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning), thermal energy storage, textiles, shipping, packaging and transportation, electronics and other applications such as healthcare, automotive and telecommunications.

Europe is the largest market which also offers the highest growth over the next five years. The Americas (constituting North America and South America) ranks second in terms of market size which is closely followed by Asia Pacific. New and better products by suppliers, and improved macro and micro-encapsulation techniques which eventually decrease the advanced PCM prices, will create new opportunities in PCM market.

PCM Market Share, By Region, 2013

Advance Phase Change Materials Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

The major players in PCM markets are Germany based BASF which focuses on building and construction application, U.S. based Sonoco Products Co. targets shipping, packaging and transportation application, Entropy Solutions Inc. (U.S.) for bio-based PCM applications, Outlast Technology (U.S.) for textile, and Micron Technology Inc. (U.S.) for electronics.

The competition in this market is low; the companies instead of competing are trying to increase the awareness for advanced PCM products and their advantages which remains to be the major challenge. New product development is the preferred strategy adopted by the major players. With new products, companies can widen or even generate new markets for advanced PCM.

Organic PCM accounts for major share in terms of value as they are more expensive then other types of advanced PCM’s. Inorganic PCM holds the maximum share in terms of volume. Bio-based PCM is estimated to have the highest CAGR from 2014 to 2019. Prices of bio-based PCM are also likely to fall significantly during the same period.
