Cold Insulation Market Overview:

Cold Insulation Market size was valued at $4,321 million in 2016, and is anticipated to reach $7,243 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.4% from 2017 to 2023. Cold insulation is a process that provides a material or a blend of two or more materials used to avoid heat loss or heat gain to conserve the valuable energy. Thermal insulation is used for energy conservation, while cold insulation is used for the temperature below the ambient threshold, which is capable of preventing condensation, moisture intrusion, and long-term degradation. Cold insulation material is a closed structure used to avoid wicking in a system where it is installed by acting as a barrier to heat flow. These are adopted in a wide range of applications to maintain low temperature for process control, avoid surface condensation, and conserve refrigeration. The types of materials used for cold insulation are fiber glass, polyurethane foam, polystyrene foam, phenolic foam, and others. Presently, the use of cold insulation has increased in the recent years, owing to its ability to protect the environment from greenhouse gases and increase the efficiency of these system where it is installed. Moreover, the market is driven by rise in its demand in oil & gas industries and favorable government regulations regarding environmental protection. However, lack of awareness about cold insulation materials could hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

Cold insulation is a process that provides a material or a blend of two or more materials that could be used to avoid heat loss or heat gain to conserve the valuable energy. Insulation materials have the ability to protect the environment from greenhouse gasses. Cold insulation technique is used for cold conservation or prevention of condensation. These are adopted in a wide range of applications, to maintain low temperature for process control, avoid surface condensation, and for maintenance of refrigeration. These are used in various applications such as chemicals, oil & gas, refrigeration, and others.

In 2016, the polyurethane foam segment held the highest share, accounting for more than one-third share of the global market. Polyurethane exhibits unique properties, such as lightweight, low thermal conductivity, low water absorption, good strength, and high chemical resistance. It is ideal for handling low thermal conductivity and substances stored at below freezing temperature. Polyurethane foam emits low smoke and provides low water vapor permeability. The oil & gas application segment accounted for the highest market share in 2016, with two-sevenths share of the global market. The refrigeration segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.9% during 2017 to 2013.

Asia-Pacific is the most prominent market for cold insulation, in terms of both revenue and volume. China is the major consumer of cold insulation materials in the region, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. Moreover, the emergence of bio-based and renewable material-based insulation are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market players in the near future.
