Advanced phase change materials are substances with high capacity to store and release large amounts of energy in the form of latent heat during phase change. Energy radiation is emitted when the physical state of the material changes at a constant temperature. The purpose is to utilize latent heat. In the event of an energy crisis, it is important to make effective use of existing energy supplies. The phase change material is also called latent heat storage.

In today's world, temperature-controlled packaging plays an important role in a variety of industries, such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and biomedicine. Due to the rapid industrialization, the need for efficient refrigeration and transportation is increasing. The rise in demand for efficient temperature control materials drives demand for advanced phase change materials. Companies globally have adopted good distribution practice guidelines to verify their products and ensure that they are not exposed to harsh conditions that can affect quality in transit. Pharmaceuticals and biomedical products require some degree of temperature protection during transit.

Bio-based PCMs are materials derived from renewable and environment-friendly resources, from the agro-food sector production and its by-products, including food-grade materials, such as palm kernel oil, palm oil, coconut oil, and soybean oil. It is becoming more and more important for improving sustainability, minimizing environmental impact, and reducing carbon footprint in all sectors, as commercial materials used in most of the manufacturing industries are environment-friendly.

Organic PCMs are currently the most popular group of phase change materials and are often referred to as paraffin and non-paraffin. Non-paraffins are mostly derived from food-grade materials (vegetable oil) and are environment-friendly. However, considering the ever-growing global population, which increases the ever-growing food demand, in conjunction with the 2nd goal for sustainable development of the 2030 agenda adopted by all United Nations member state in 2015, there is need to focus attention on waste materials, such as food wastes, byproducts from agro-based food industries, and non-edible components of food crops, as potential bio-based PCMs substitute.

Advanced Phase Change Materials Market by Region

Asia-Pacific segment is expected to possess highest market growth till 2030 consisting of countries, such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific. Growth of textile and manufacturing sectors driven by substantial rise in personal income level coupled with improved monetary condition is the key factor that supports the market growth during the forecast spell. Countries such as China and India have begun to use PCMs in packaging, shipping applications, and transportation. China generates the most important profits related to PCM, which is expected to increase during the forecast period, thus driving market growth in the region. In China, phase change materials are used in different application sectors, including electronics, construction, packaging, and other industries. The Chinese government implemented several initiatives that focus on green development and rapid urbanization in the country. Advanced phase change materials are used in the development of green buildings owing to their unique properties. Hence, the PCM market holds immense potential for growth in the region during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

COVID-19 has severely impacted the global economy with devastating effects on global trade, which has simultaneously affected households, business, financial institution, industrial establishments, and infrastructure companies. Restrictions on international trade and lockdown regulations on the operations of the chemicals industry are projected to limit short-term demand for advanced phase change materials in the infrastructure market.  Industries, manufacturing units, infrastructural projects, and mining operations were closed for the past two years due to the pandemic situation. The fluctuation in price of raw materials used to make phase change material and the COVID-19 pandemic hinder the growth of the phase change material market. Countries such as China, the U.S., and others are back on their feet, due to the availability of COVID-19 vaccines, and are continuing regular work due to the presence of huge investment in the infrastructure developments such as smart city, airports, and others.
