The increasing cost of power and the rapid depletion of conventional sources of energy have necessitated effective heat management and energy conservation in industrial processes. High temperature insulation (HTI) products provide high compressive strength and low shrinkage at high temperatures; and thus offer a cost-effective energy management solution for industrial processes.

The global HTI products market - defined as insulation products with maximum operating temperature exceeding 1000° C - is witnessing tremendous growth due to the increasing awareness about the energy saving, cost effectiveness and emission reduction offered by these products, and industrialization of emerging economies. The global HTI products market is estimated to grow from $2.7 billion in 2011 to $3.5 billion in 2016. While Europe led the global HTI market in 2011 with a 39% share, India, China, Russia and Middle East have registered dynamic growth rates.

The impending saturation of the European and U.S. markets has induced several HTI manufacturers to adopt geographic expansion strategies to the Asian region. India and China offer especially lucrative markets and also offer the benefit of low-cost manufacturing. Value-based pricing has emerged as a major growth strategy in the relatively saturated markets. Market players in these regions are also focusing on emerging HTI applications such as aerospace and fire protection for further market growth.

The major applications of HTI products are petrochemicals, cement, glass, ceramics, refractory, aluminum, powder metallurgy, and iron and steel industry. Petrochemicals currently hold a 30% share of the overall HTI market, and are expected to continue being the largest application market through 2016. Glass forms the next largest application segment, holding a 14% share of the overall market currently. Most of the applications require insulation at maximum temperature ranging from 1000° C to 1300° C. HTI products falling within this temperature range account for 65% of total HTI market revenue.

Prices of HTI product vary largely across geographies. In Asia, due to lower raw material and labor costs, prices are considerably less than that in North America and Europe. Prices of HTI product also change with increase in operating temperature. The change is predominant in North America and Europe where prices increase up to 10 - 12 times with increase in temperature.

The global HTI products market is consolidated with two companies – U.S. based Unifrax LLC and UK based Morgan Thermal Ceramics (Morgan Crucible PLC) – holding almost a third of the entire market. The other companies with significant market presence are Denmark’s Skamol, U.S. based Pyrotek and Zircar, Belgium’s Promat, and Japan based Isolite. These industry leaders are employing a number of growth strategies such as increased R&D investments, new product launches, shifting focus toward Asia Pacific and agreements and collaborations to expand their market presence. Increased R&D investments have also had a positive impact on product enhancement and differentiation strategies. These competitive developments are expected to boost the growth of HTI market.

Energy forms the largest cost component of HTI products, accounting for about 40% to 50% of the total production cost. Thus, energy efficiency in the manufacturing process could significantly lower the cost of the end-product.

The research report titled “High Temperature Insulation (HTI) Market by Application (petrochemicals, glass, ceramics, and others), and Temperature Range – Global Trends & Forecasts (2011 – 2016)” provides in-depth market intelligence on the global market for HTI products, which is currently witnessing high growth due to expanding industrial applications such as petrochemicals, and cement and glass manufacturing.

The high temperature insulation market (defined as insulation products with maximum operating temperature exceeding 1000° C) is estimated at $2.7 billion in 2011. Industrialization of emerging economies, the need for energy conservation and emission reduction, wide range of applications across petrochemical industry, and development of low bio persistent products are the major market drivers and opportunities and will influence the market size to grow by compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during 2011 – 2016.

High Temperature Insulation Market, by geography, 2011 (% Share)

High Temperature Insulation Market
Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

The geographical segmentation shows that Europe holds the largest share in the high temperature insulation market, generating 39% of the total revenue. The saturated European market is closely followed by another saturated market i.e. North America. The fairly nascent Asian market, however, is the fastest growing market for the industrial high temperature insulation applications. Saturation in the European and North American markets has resulted in a shift of focus towards the emerging Asian markets. Steep costs of the insulation products in these saturated market has also given a boost to the exports from the Asian subcontinent. Asia and other emerging economies world over offer the highest growth opportunities for high temperature.

The high temperature insulation products find applications in the manufacturing of petrochemicals, iron and steel, ceramics, cement, refractory, glass, aluminum, solar equipment and powder metallurgy. Aerospace, solar equipment and fire protection are the emerging applications for the HTI products, and hence, show promising growth in the years from 2011-2016. Petrochemical industry is the largest consumer of the HTI products, accounting for nearly 30% of the market revenue in 2011. Glass is the second largest in terms of revenue share i.e. 14% followed by ceramic with 12.3% in 2011. In terms of operating temperatures for the HTI product, the market is broken down into 5 segments, covering a temperature range from 1,000° C to 1,700° C and beyond. The products catering to temperature range of 1,000° C to 1,300° C are the highest revenue contributors in 2011, although the products for 1,700° C and above temperatures show promising growth in the years to come.

On the basis of properties, high temperature insulation market can be divided into ceramic fibers, calcium silicate, insulating firebricks (IFB) and others. Out of the different HTI material categories, ceramic fibers are the most widely used material, and hold nearly 60% of the market in 2011. The high temperature resistance, superior tensile strength and flexibility are reason driving the demand for this material. IFB find favored usage in the furnace applications and occupies the 20% of the market share in 2011. Newer materials like aerogel, bio-persistent insulation materials, etc. occupy a small share in the market, however, show the promise for the period from 2011-2016.
