The global thin insulation market size, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 2.12 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2016 and 2021. The increasing infrastructure development activities in Asia-Pacific and North America and continuous new product launches and joint ventures & collaborations undertaken by different companies are the key factors for the growth of the global thin insulation market.

Thin insulation is widely used in the building thermal insulation application for its thermal resistance or R-value, as higher the R-value, higher will be the heat resistance and lesser the heat will flow. In buildings that have thin walls or timber constructions, the impact of additional insulation is significant. In addition, thin insulation is used in the automotive industry to prevent heat and sound transfer in the vehicle and improve braking performance of the vehicle. It is also used in other end-use industries, thereby driving the thin insulation market.

Plastic foams such as EPS, XPS, polyurethane foams, Polyisocyanurate insulation, phenolic foams, polytetrafluoroethylene, and polyimide are widely used in different applications of thin insulation. These are predominantly used in the oil & gas, construction, and automotive end-use industries due to their excellent thermal resistivity. These foams in particular have become the preferred choice for 10mm to 20mm thickness, solving the space and reliability issues in the construction industry. Thus, the increasing use of these foams in the oil & gas, and automotive end-use industries is expected to drive the thin insulation market during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing thin insulation market globally with China being the largest as well as fastest-growing country in the region. Increasing rural to urban migrations in the region are stimulating the housing construction demand in urban areas; consequently increasing the market size of the thin insulation materials. The growing construction industry (residential and non-residential) and advances in process manufacturing are some of the key drivers for the market in Asia-Pacific. Countries such as India, Indonesia, and China are expected to witness high growth in the thin insulation market, supported by increasing demand from the building & construction industry.

Thin Insulation Market

Though the thin insulation market is gaining importance, few factors act as a bottleneck toward the market growth. The major restraint of the thin insulation market is the reducing demand for thin insulation materials due to its high prices. As building thermal insulation is one of the major applications of thin insulation, stagnancy in this industry is subsequently lowering the demand for thin insulation.

Companies such as The Dow Corning Corporation (U.S.), Actis Insulation (U.K.), BASF Polyurethanes GmbH (Germany), and Kingspan Insulation Ltd. (U.K.), are the dominant participants in the global thin insulation market. The diverse product portfolio, strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are few factors that are responsible for strengthening the position of these companies in the market. They have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies such as joint ventures & collaborations and new product launches to enhance the current market scenario of thin insulation.
