The electrical insulation materials market is projected to reach USD 9.58 Billion by 2021 at CAGR of 5.82% from 2016. The rising demand for energy has increased the electrical and power transmission and distribution (T&D) activities which has also led to the increased use of electrical insulation materials.

The market based on type is segmented into different types of materials such as thermoplastics, epoxy resins, ceramics, and others. Thermoplastics were the largest and the fastest-growing segment in 2015. The demand for thermoplastics is rising due to increasing energy demand from growing economies such as India and China. This is estimated to lead to higher investments in the T&D capital expenditure. The growth is also due to the increasing use of electrical appliances in the region along with the need to explore cost-effective and high-performance insulating materials.

The power systems application has been the largest and the fastest-growing end-use market for electrical insulation materials in 2015 The high demand from the increasing population, modernization of electricity networks, improved policy regulations, and access to electricity in the rural areas are the major driving factors for the power systems application.

The Asia-Pacific region continues to be a significant market for electrical insulation materials. Globally, this region has been a leader in the electrical insulation materials market with respect to demand as well as production capacity. The overall economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region leads to increase in urbanization and rapid industrialization, thus driving the electrical insulation materials market. Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-developing markets among all the other regions, mainly due to the population growth and gradual rise in industrial, commercial, and residential infrastructure.

Key countries in the Asia-Pacific market include China (the most dominant market), Japan, India, and Australia. South Korea, Malaysia, and Indonesia witnessed promising demand for electrical insulation materials in 2015

Electrical Insulation Materials Market

Major market players are currently facing problems with rising competition from manufacturers supplying cheap and low-quality products than the existing players in the market. These companies are mostly located in the North Asian region. However, local manufacturers pose similar challenges to the global manufacturers. These grey market players subjugate major suppliers, in terms of price competitiveness and the local supply network maintained by them, which is difficult for the global players to achieve. The grey market acts as a restraint for the electrical insulation materials market.

Market players such as DuPont (U.S.), Elantas Electrical Insulation (Germany), ITW Formex (U.S.), and DuPont Teijin Films (Japan) focus on expanding their regional reach. Other development strategies adopted by market players are new product launches, agreements & collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions.
