The market is likely to be driven by the fast development of aerogel for high-temperature insulation, mainly in the oil and gas industry, due to its low thermal conductivity. The global pandemic in 2020 had a significant influence on the market. The mandated lockdowns in several places caused a delay in new insulation construction in the oil and gas industry, resulting in market growth that was constrained.

In 2020, however, market growth was driven by product use in essential applications for important MRO tasks. The United States government is continually providing incentives and encouraging the usage of electric vehicles (EVs). In addition, it is assisting OEMs and part suppliers with product development and increasing EV manufacturing through different aids. As a result, the market is likely to benefit from the recent development of a product line of aerogel thermal barriers for use in lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles.

Thin polymer aerogels are being investigated by industry players for usage in shelter applications such as insulated tents, renovating historical structures, and other insulation requirements. Interior insulation options for building retrofit, thin facade insulation for historical monument refurbishment, roof balcony, and side balcony constructions are all gaining popularity.

The market has a highly concentrated structure due to the existence of limited companies, most of which are based in North America and Europe. The industry's major players are investing in research and development in order to lower manufacturing costs and increase production capacity in order to meet future demand.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Aerogel Market Growth?

Polyurethane foam, mineral wool, rock wool, and stone wool are examples of traditional insulating materials with downsides. To obtain the requisite R-value, for example, extensive layers of these materials are required, resulting in the loss of valuable floor space in new construction. It's considerably more difficult to add significant levels of insulation to historic structures since the extra layers alter the house's aesthetic look.

As a result, aerogels are expected to be an appropriate substitute for existing insulating materials in new structures to meet energy criteria established by various regulatory authorities and to prevent structural compromises. Aerogel materials can save a significant amount of energy that would otherwise be required for heating and cooling because of their poor thermal conductivity and thinness. Because of its qualities, such as low weight and poor heat conductivity, aerogels are utilized for outerwear in cold climates. They're also commonly employed in industrial applications.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Aerogel Industry?

One of the primary factors limiting the growth of the aerogel market is the high cost of manufacture. The high cost of raw materials (particularly alkoxide-based precursor materials), complex process methods (solvent exchange stages, long reaction periods restricted by diffusion), and the installation of relatively modest production capacity of enterprises all contribute to the high cost of silica aerogels. Aerogel materials require a lot of research and development, which makes the whole process expensive.

Aerogel materials are made via synthetic processes, which are less adaptable. Aerogel manufacture needs a complex facility due to the extremely specialized production procedures. Supercritical drying is the most costly phase in the aerogel production process.

Why is North America emerging as an Opportunistic Aerogel Market?

With a revenue share of more than 46% in 2020, North America led the worldwide market and is predicted to grow at a steady CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period. This tendency can be linked to the industry's consolidated structure as well as the region's large concentration of aerogel makers, particularly in the United States.

Because of increased product innovation and application development, North America has a significant growth potential. For example, due to its extensive application scope in vehicle batteries, the fast expanding production of Electric Cars (EVs) and hybrid vehicles in the area is likely to boost product demand.
